While maximizing shelf life is critical to the sustainability of businesses, more consumers are looking for natural products with cleaner, friendlier labels. Yet matching the effectiveness of chemical preservatives has been difficult, until the arrival of the natural mold killer: BioVia™ YM 10.
An Effective Natural Antifungal Blend
BioVia™ YM 10 food preservative is a natural, label-friendly food protection solution that rivals the efficacy of chemical preservatives such as potassium sorbate. A natural antifungal blend, BioVia™ YM 10 is specially designed to enhance the safety and quality of a wide variety of refrigerated and shelf-stable culinary products, including condiments, dips, dressings, sauces, ready-to-eat (RTE) meals, and refrigerated side items.
With cultured dextrose and plant extracts as active components, this natural mold killer is particularly effective against difficult-to-control fungal spoilage organisms, such as yeasts and molds.
Hurdles Prolong Freshness
BioVia™ YM 10 blend employs “hurdle technology” to control yeast and mold by combining the synergistic effects of cultured dextrose, green tea extract and encapsulated mustard essential oil. The result is a three-pronged attack against challenging food spoilage organisms by the most effective natural, label-friendly antifungal weapon on the market today.
In addition, this natural mold killer delivers:
- Heat stability at low pH values.
- Minimal flavor impact.
- Activity across a broad pH range (pH 2 – 7.)
- High solubility and dispersibility in water.
- Enhanced oxidative stability.
