The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines antioxidants as, "Substances used to preserve food by retarding deterioration, rancidity, or discoloration due to oxidation."
Fats and oils in food with a high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids are susceptible to oxidative rancidity, which is accelerated under certain conditions such as heat, light, and the presence of metal ions. Antioxidants inhibit the oxidation process and maintain the freshness, flavor, and odor, thus minimizing product loss.
