One of today’s challenges for the food industry is to guarantee safe foods throughout the supply chain, whilst retaining the same properties that were present when the foods were freshly made. During the distribution channel, from food manufacturer to consumer, food products need to be protected against physical, chemical and microbial deterioration. “Preservatives” focus on the prevention of food spoilage, caused by the activity of micro-organisms.
Consumers are demanding labels with ingredients they recognise and understand. As "no preservatives" is amongst the most popular clean label claims, food ingredient manufacturers have developed new ingredients to meet this demand. Several solutions based on fermentation technology are offered in the market.
