    Abstract :

    Abstract- This review work analytically explicates the food sources, chemistry and benefits of natural antioxidants. Naturally occurring antioxidants are not only capable of abolishing the ill effects of free radical damage to food system, but their consumption also boost the body’s endogenous antioxidant mechanism to combat oxidative stress. Natural ingredients in food are gaining much contemplation in both the areas of food industry and research, as these are considered safer option than synthetic additives. This review explores the possible uses of natural antioxidants as additive and components of functional food formulations. Critical analysis of natural antioxidants as additive in food is reviewed, addressing food safety and health benefit for the consumers.
