No matter what type of food or beverage you’re creating, a cleaner, simpler label is important to consumers. At the same time, these consumers aren’t willing to sacrifice on taste, texture or food quality. The PhytoShield™ Flavor Enhancer line can be customized to a food system to address a broad range of product quality goals related to flavor, microbial degradation, and shelf life with a single, natural technology.

PhytoShield technology is based on decades of flavor enhancement experience. As a form of ‘self-preservation’, these flavor systems deliver broad-spectrum anti-microbial activity, effective against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, fungi, molds and yeast – with performance comparable to or better than synthetic technologies.  The anti-microbial efficacy of PhytoShield is a synergistic effect created by the reaction of bioflavonoids, flavor components, polyphenols and other organic acids. This revolutionary approach to delivering broad-spectrum antimicrobial efficacy can translate into better overall product quality and a longer shelf life. Because PhytoShield is a natural flavor technology, it allows the development of a cleaner label on your packaging. Low use rates and formulation-friendly physical characteristics make PhytoShield easy to incorporate in foods and beverages.

Easy formulation, broad applicability & customized solutions

The PhytoShield line features ingredient components that are traditionally used in the development of natural flavors. All components of these systems are non-GMO. Organic compliant grades of PhytoShield are available. These ingredients are effective over a broad pH range (2-10) and are temperature stable up to 130o C. The flavor enhancing characteristics of PhytoShield ingredients are matched to the food or beverage product under consideration and can be customized in FSI’s Applications Development Center. For most applications, addition rates of PhytoShield ingredients are low.
