Scientific studies have shown that light of any kind – whether in the grocery store, home, refrigerator or through a window – can cause food, beverages, pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products to degrade faster – often before they meet the expiration date. With milk and other dairy products, exposure to light affects the taste, freshness, and nutritional value of the food. As more consumers understand the impact of light on milk and other products they consume, they will seek packaging that protects these products from light degradation.
Noluma is the first company to develop technology to assess, measure, and certify light protection in packaging. A Noluma™ certification means that a product or food’s freshness, nutrition, stability and sensory qualities are protected from light exposure as best as scientifically possible throughout the full shelf life of the product.
