Kalsec recently introduced DuraShield™ Antimicrobial Natural Food Protection Blends. This product harnesses the enhanced synergies of natural antioxidants combined with natural antimicrobials to improve both shelf life and food safety in a variety of applications, including meat and poultry, deli salads, dips, sauces, and dressings.

DuraShield Natural Food Protection Blends expertly combine traditional natural antioxidant products, like rosemary and acerola extracts, with natural antimicrobial products, such as cultured dextrose and buffered vinegar. While synthetic food preservation alternatives are commercially available, they do not offer the consumer-preferred clean label that can be achieved with Kalsec’s DuraShield blends. Additionally, DuraShield is a 2-in-1 solution, where the ingredients are more powerful united than they are alone.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that each year, 16 percent of Americans get sick from contaminated foods or beverages and 3,000 people die. Additionally, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates an annual loss of more than $15.6 billion due to foodborne illnesses.

Kalsec is first launching DuraShield Food Protection Blends in the United States. Future rollouts into other global regions are forthcoming.
