CytoGuard® mold inhibitors provide a natural alternative, clean label solution to synthetic chemical preservatives.
Non-GMO, non-allergenic, gluten-free and dairy-free, A&B Ingredients’ mold inhibitors support product rankings in the growing natural food marketplace. Clean-label products are an important consideration as consumers are looking for more healthy, nutritional foods. And they are reading product labels to make sure they are getting what they want.
Waste is another important factor in the selection of a mold inhibitor. Each year over 1.3 billion tons of food are discarded due to mold spoilage. Bakery products contribute around 200 million pounds of product to mold spoilage waste. It’s a costly problem. CytoGuard natural mold inhibitors are proven to be highly effective in preventing spoilage in baked goods and bakery fillings and frostings. Recent tests have demonstrated their ability to inhibit yeast and mold growth in dairy products such as sour cream and cheese, as well as refrigerated dips and salsa.
CytoGuard natural mold inhibitors are available in liquid and powder forms. They can be formulated directly into products or be diluted with water and applied as a spray.
Among the benefits of CytoGuard natural mold inhibitors:
- Water-soluble liquid or powder
- Effective at neutral pH
- Minimal flavor impact
- Clean label
- Certified Kosher
- Gluten-free and dairy-free
In direct response to industry demands for higher-quality clean label foods with a longer shelf life, A&B Ingredients introduced CytoGuard® CDP to its natural shelf-life extenders and mold inhibitors product line. It is a natural, clean label shelf-life protection ingredient based on fermented dextrose.
CytoGuard CDP is specifically designed as an extremely cost-effective mold inhibitor and shelf-life extender. Its primary focus is to prevent mold growth in low moisture systems. It is also effective as part of a natural shelf life solution for higher moisture food products. Some examples of where CytoGuard CDP can be used include baked goods, cheeses, meats, sauces, puddings, dressings and dips.
At recommended usage levels, CytoGuard CDP has a negligible effect on color or the taste of the finished food.
Among the benefits are:
- Clean label
- Negligible effect on color or taste
