Tetrahydrocurcumin (THC) is a colorless hydrogenated product derived from the yellow curcumins, (the biologically active principles from the rhizomes of Curcuma longa), function as efficient antioxidant compounds. THC exhibit many of the same physiologic and pharmacological activities as curcumins and in some systems may exert greater antioxidant activity than curcumins. The superior antioxidant property of THC, combined with the lack of yellow color, render this product useful in achromatic food and cosmetic applications that currently employ conventional synthetic antioxidants.
