Clean Label Quality for Consumers

Called PhytoShield Flavor Enhancer, the new technology was developed by New Jersey-based Flavor Solutions, Inc (FSI) and is based on decades of flavor enhancement experience. The technology is featured in a line of ingredients that can be incorporated in a broad range of food & beverage systems. The anti-microbial efficacy of PhytoShield is a synergistic effect created by the reaction of bioflavonoids, flavor components, polyphenols and other organic acids. 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 synthetic technologies. As a natural flavor technology, PhytoShield allows the development of a cleaner label on food and beverage packaging. Low use rates and ease of incorporation limit PhytoShield’s impact on organoleptics and offers excellent cost-in-use.
