DSM DelvoCid+ Natural Preservation Solution Extends Beverage Shelf Life Up to 12 Months
DSM has announced the launch of its latest natural preservation solution for beverages, DelvoCid+, at the Institute of Food Technologist Annual Meeting and Food Expo 2013. DelvoCid+ helps to keep drinks fresh for longer with a clean taste as well as being very cost-efficient to use.
Applying the benefits of natamycin, the natural antifungal, to beverages, DSM is offering its latest preservation solution DelvoCid+ to beverage manufacturers. DelvoCid+ effectively eliminates the risk of yeast and mold growth in beverage processing. Proving to be between 100 to 500 times more effective than traditional solutions, it significantly extends shelf life. Some customers have seen the shelf life of their drinks increase from six to eight months, sometimes even up to 12 months. The exact shelf life extension opportunities depend on among others, the type of drink and mold as well as the pH value of the beverage.
These improved shelf life possibilities can be achieved with smaller dosages than traditional preservation methods, delivering high value for money. DelvoCid+ has been submitted for approval by regulatory authorities in Mexico for beverage applications and is expected to achieve governmental approval in other regions.
DelvoCid+ features a neutral taste and odor, which helps beverage producers deliver clean taste profiles without aftertaste as well as adding a natural preservative to their label. Dosages remain within the acceptable daily intake (ADI) levels, enhancing appeal to increasingly health-conscious consumers.
