A century of advances in ingredient science, food formulations and processing have resulted in developed nations having some of the safest and most cost-effective food supplies in the world. However, as consumer expectations change in regards to what are acceptable food ingredients, researchers and others in the food industry have turned their attention to natural antimicrobials. This presentation looked at critical elements and considerations in the practical food use of natural antimicrobials. Such considerations can assist food manufacturers in conducting due diligence to ensure their preservative systems are both effective and clean label.
