Hi All,

 

have any of you had any success with shelf life extender ingredients which can be declared on pack in a "clean dec" way?  I'm particularly interested in applications in high fat foods and cheese.

 

TIA.

Please clarify "clean dec", you mean avoiding calling it a preservative? Or just more consumer friendly ingredients?

 

In USA Natamycin is very popular with cheese products for mold control. It qualifies for "natural" claims and doesn't show up on google's playlist of "avoid this!" posts that traditional sorbates and benzoates do. I can't speak to oxidation as much since it's out of my wheelhouse, but if you truly want to add cost to your product to extend shelf life, start with your packaging. Packaging changes won't affect your label/ingredients, and can make a HUGE difference in shelf life. Learn more about the layers in your packaging and their various permeabilities, and talk to your supplier about other options and cost.

Natamycin is very much not clean dec in the UK.  The kind of ingredients I'm thinking about are ones I could put on a label and it to look like something a consumer would have in their cupboard.  I'm most interested in people who have experience in using things like this mixed into high fat or protein products at packing stage like meats, fats etc.

Thanks, not quite what I'm after, more prepared cheese products?  Or even other high protein / fat applications?  Ready meals might be a better analogy.
