A liquid antimicrobial, SHIELD FL is a synergistic blend of active ingredients that control microbes to prevent spoilage and mold growth.
The SHIELD product line is a recognized brand used widely to maintain the shelf life in bakery and tortilla products as well as dressings and sauces. New research shows that SHIELD FL works to extend the shelf life of deli salads.
"Preservatives are widely used to maintain the shelf life of deli salads," said Betsy Blades, marketing manager for the Food Technologies division of Kemin Industries. "SHIELD is a cost effective alternative because it is a highly concentrated product that works at low treatment levels, and the liquid formulation allows for accurate inclusion that yields consistent results."
SHIELD FL is a highly concentrated, liquid combination of sodium propionate and sorbic acid. This combination creates a synergy that provides a broad spectrum of antimicrobial properties - balancing both spoilage and pathogenic organisms. Microbiological analysis demonstrates that SHIELD FL extends the shelf life of deli salads by reducing yeast, mold and aerobic bacteria counts.
