Properties of DHQ
Following properties of DHQ support its use as additives in
food products:
 Antioxidant Activity: Blocks and neutralizes free radicals.
 Cardio strengthening activities: Strengthens capillary walls,
enhances blood flow, helps promote healthy cholesterol
 Immune system enhancing activities: enhances immune
system and supports its ability to fight inflammation.
 Detoxifying properties: promotes the healthy liver by
enhancing its detoxification function, by binding with toxins.
 Anti-radiation activity: supports an organism’s ability to
recover after exposure to toxic and radioactive elements
ORAC Value Data
ORAC(Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) analysis provides
measure of scavenging capacity of antioxidants against
peroxyl radical(Reactive Oxygen Species found in body)

Applications of DHQ(Taxifolin) in food products
• In Dairy Products
As an antioxidant in dairy products can offer two fold
benefit to the consumers:
(a).When consumed as part of food particle DHQ,
inhibits oxidation process taking place in the
human organisms;
(b).Reduces food oxidation process and thus extends
the shelf life of the product while preserving their
nutritive values
• In meat products
• Significantly lowers the rate of lipid per oxidation in
ground meat, ground poultry meat, ground pork and
beef meat, chicken rendered fat, ground lamb meat
• Increases shelf life(Doubles) of the product;
• In Confectionary Products
• Greatest inhibition of Fe2+ induced lipid per oxidation
was observed when DHQ was added to the lipids of
Kernel nuts, Cacao Powder and Cacao Butter
• Degree of per oxidation inhibition in these products
was 50-55% at 0.2% conc. of DHQ, 70-75% at 0.5%
DHQ and 90-95% at 1.0% DHQ
• Increases the storage time of products 2-2.5 times.
• In Beverages
In alcoholic beverages:
Helps in artificial ageing of wines, spirits and cognacs;
Improves taste and quality of alcoholic drinks;
Binds and removes compounds of blood plasma proteins
and acetaldehyde that causes alcoholic intoxication;
 Protects the liver from destruction by toxicants , removes
them from organism;
 Makes the taste of liquors , vodka and cognacs milder
and more delicate;
 Prevents hangover.
 In Non-Alcoholic Beverages
• Suppresses the yeast production and increases its
• Decreases the oxygen concentration in beverages
during its storage;
• Improves taste and odor;
• Extends shelf life;
• Cardio strengthening activity: strengthens the capillary
walls, enhances blood flow, promotes healthy
cholesterol level
• References :
Seven types of vodka manufactured with DHQ in Russian
Federation namely: “Rjanaya bespohmelnaya” (Kaluga), “Lixar
Classic” (Saratov), “Stolichniy doctor. Antistress #7”
(Moscowskaya oblast), “Numernaya” (Moscow), “Na kedrovih
oreshkah” (Ussuriysk and Khabarovsk).
The fortification of vodka with DHQ could reduce harmful
effects of vodka on the liver and the alcohol withdrawal
syndrome, and can improve the taste of vodka.
“PepsiCo” Co., Ltd. manufactures mineral water “Aqua Mineral
Beauty” that contains DHQ which, promotes smoothness and
elasticity of the skin by strengthening the capillaries.
The OOO “Advice” (Amur region/Russia) has introduced
drinking water “Velikokniyazheskaya” containing DHQ.
DHQ can be also used in the production of kvass(fermented
beverage of Rye Bread). Preliminary research indicates that
DHQ helps increase the shelf life of kvass in 2.5 times since
DHQ is capable of suppressing yeast reproduction.
• The use of DHQ in confectionaries promotes an
increase in the products’ the shelf life in 2-2.5 times.
• There are Technical Specifications for chocolate with
DHQ:“Dark Chocolate,” ‘Porous Dark Chocolate,” and
Porous Dark Chocolate “Elitniy”.
• Moscow confectionery factory “Krasniy Octyabr”
(chocolate “Mishka”) and the Company for infant food
“Istra-Nutricia” (chocolate “Sibirskiy”) produced
chocolates with DHQ that were recommended for
prevention of cardiovascular and pulmonary
pathological conditions.
The Application of DHQ in food Industry is regulated by
following normative documentations in the Russian Federation:
 According to Decision of the State Chief Medical Officer dated
11/14/2001 No 36 “About the application of the Sanitary and
Epidemiological Conclusion (SEC) “, Dihydroqyuercetin
is classified as an antioxidant;
 The decision of State Chief Medical Officer dated 04/18/2003 No 59
“About the application of SEC 2.3.21293-03” allows using
Dihydroquercetin for in manufacturing of cream , chocolate and dry
milk. The maximal content of Dihydroquercetin in these products is 200
mg/Kg fat of the product;
 The methodical recommendations of the State and Sanitary
Epidemiological Regulation No “ Recommend norm of
consumption of food and biologically active supplements "has
determined the appropriate and the highest allowable level of
Dihydroquercetin consumption :25-100 mg per day.
Has passed the state registration for the manufacturing of the products,
produced by Ametis JSC.
Dahurain larch used as raw material, grows in ecological clean area of
Amur Region. According to a Russian Non-Government organization
“Green Patrol” Amur region takes 6th place of 83 in the ecological rating
among the Russian region.
The Dihydroquerecetin(DHQ) content in produced product varies from
70% to 99.5% that cover all demands of customer.
Very high antioxidant activity (ORAC hydro Value varies from 15,155 up
to 32,744 µmole TE/g) that surpasses the ORAC values of some wellknown antioxidant.
Is FDA registered facility.
Ametis JSC received self- affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe)
