Rosemary extract?

Where would I buy Rosemary extract for keeping baked goods fresh? And how do I know how much I'm supposed to use?

And can I use some regular old lemon juice for freshness or do I need to buy actual citric acid powder or some kind of extract?

I've never seen a commercially prepared "rosemary extract" although I have made it with EVOO - and would be most interested in a recipe that calls for it as a bread "preservative".

Again - what's the recipe?

I've never used herb extracts or citric acid to preserve bread ... if I want to prolong it's keeping qualities - I use a hygroscopic ingredient like honey that will draw in moisture from the air.

What's EVOO? I don't have any planned recipes. I make treats for pets and don't want to have to refrigerate them.

EVOO is extra-virgin olive oil
