Natural shelf-life extender
A&B Ingredients’ new CytoGuard CDP Ultra is a natural shelf-life extender produced through the fermentation of sugars. It can be used as a natural alternative to chemical preservatives such as propionates and sorbates. The product has been specifically designed to have a clean and mild flavor impact, which allows for use in a broad range of applications. The ingredient’s primary focus is to prevent mold growth in low-moisture systems; however, it is also effective as part of a natural shelf-life solution for higher-moisture food products. Some examples of usage include cheeses, sauces, puddings, dressings, dips and baked goods.
