Food product quality and shelf-life are crucial factors while making purchasing decisions by consumers.
Consumers are preferring natural preservative-added products as they contribute to a cleaner label than artificial preservatives (BHA, BHT). People are scared to purchase products with BHA, BHT, TBHQ these days.
Product developers and application scientists are currently working to substitute BHA, BHT, citrates, propyl gallate, TBHQ with natural preservatives.
The below natural preservatives are currently trending:
- Rosemary extract – bakery products
- Green tea extract – dietary snacks
- Plant tocopherols – snack (rich in fats) and pet food products
- Pomegranate extract – bakery, snack and meat products
