DuPont Nutrition & Health will highlight its newest solution for controlling yeast and mold spoilage, HOLDBAC YM-XPK, at this year’s International Cheese Technology Expo, along with other solutions for helping cheese manufacturers improve productivity while maintaining quality and optimizing costs.

Visitors to the DuPont booth (#815) can learn more about HOLDBAC YM-XPK, a patent-pending protective culture designed for optimal performance in controlling yeast and mold in typical cheese matrices. The solution addresses a key opportunity for manufacturers to deliver a product with longer shelf life, in particular pre-packed portion, sliced and grated cheeses.

“The DuPont team is excited about our offering to the cheese industry,” said Roald Mason, director Dairy Sales, DuPont Nutrition & Health. “HOLDBAC YM-XPK is just the latest example of what comes from combining DuPont science with the breadth of the DuPont Danisco ingredient portfolio and more than a century of experience in dairy. That combination makes it possible for DuPont to keep coming back to cheese manufacturers with solutions that take their businesses to the next level.”
Also in focus this year in the DuPont booth will be CHOOZIT Swift cultures for pizza cheese, CHOOZIT MC and CHOOZIT MCT DVI cultures for all cheese types, in addition to flavor adjuncts.
