Multisorb Technologies (multisorb.com) will be participating at PACK EXPO in Las Vegas, September 28-30, 2015 with a focus on its clean label capabilities for food processors and packagers.
The demand for cleaner and consumer friendly labels has left many food manufacturers facing the challenge of how to maintain shelf life while eliminating preservatives and additives. With over 50 years of experience developing sorbent technology, Multisorb offers innovative solutions to help food processors create cleaner labels.
"At its core, the trend toward clean label means the elimination of preservatives and additives in food products that are often used to maintain shelf life, creating a challenge for food processors," says Bob Sabdo, Market Leader, North American Food and Beverage Packaging. "By their very design, Multisorb's sorbents provide an alternative to help reduce the use of preservatives and additives in food along with extending shelf life."
Unlike artificial preservatives, oxygen absorbers and desiccants are not food additives and can help to streamline the ingredient list preserving quality and preventing spoilage.
By helping to prevent oxidation, Multisorb's packaging solutions facilitate the use of natural oils in foods, while reducing the possibility of rancidity or reliance on synthetic antioxidants such as BHA, BHT, and TBHQ. Vitamins that would otherwise be lost due to oxidation during storage and distribution also can be preserved.
With specifically designed dispensers for its oxygen absorbers and desiccants, Multisorb provides a turnkey approach for its sorbent solutions that includes increased efficiencies and seamless integration of sorbent placement into virtually any product packaging line.
Multisorb's clean label technologies can be used in a variety of food products including: baked goods; nuts and snacks; candies and confections; whole fat dry foods; processed, smoked and cured meats; coffee and tea; cheeses and dairy products; dried fruits and vegetables; spices and seasonings; flour and grain items; and fresh and pre-cooked pasta and noodles.
