Natural Preservatives

Addressing food waste issues with BKD’s natural solutions

Food shelf-life is a major environmental problem and a big concern of the food industry. Not only does it affect consumers’ pocket, but it also goes against the principles of sustainability and circular economy.
As consumers demand shifts to friendlier and recognizable ingredients, natural antioxidants and preservative solutions are replacing synthetic alternatives at quick pace.

Natural Antioxydant

Lipid oxidation triggers the formation of unhealthy compounds. It negatively affects food sensory properties and represents an important contributor to reduced shelf-life and food waste.

Antioxydants have an essential role:

Antioxidants are molecules that preserve food and make “farm to plate” possible. Thanks to their properties, they help to maintain the nutrients level, texture, color, taste, freshness, functionality, aroma, and appeal to consumers.
Recent trends guided by the food industry and consumers’ preferences are focused on the replacement of the incumbent synthetic additives by natural alternatives. These ones enjoy recognized health and sustainability benefits, as they are obtained from natural feedstocks and avoid the use of hazardous chemicals and solvents.
Food and beverages with natural preservatives have witnessed an average annual growth of +20% these past five years (Global, CAGR 2016-2020).

Oxykind

Owing to the increasing number of scientific research highlighting the negative health impact of synthetic antioxidants, there is a growing number of consumers who progressively scrutinize food labels and favour friendlier natural solutions.

The global demand for natural ingredients has spurred the clean label trend, which is leading manufacturers to shift from synthetic antioxidants to their vegetal alternative such as the highly efficient carnosic acid from Rosemary Extract.
A downside though to Rosemary extract’s enormous popularity is the strong pressure on the supply side in order to meet the ever growing demand in a sustainable and safe fashion.
