Natural antimicrobial blends

Controlling a broad variety of microorganisms is a major challenge in complex food systems sold via long supply chains. Today, food manufacturers recognize that a combination of physical, chemical and biological hurdles is necessary to control both spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms and extend shelf life while complying with microbial safety rules.

Our "multi-hurdle" proprietary NovaGARD® and BioVia™ Antimicrobial Systems are dosage-efficient solutions that combine known natural ingredients with well-defined antioxidative and/or antimicrobial functionality. These synergistic combinations result in solutions that are more robust, efficient, and effective. They are produced at our special blending sites in the USA and Europe.

Good manufacturing practices are a pre-requisite for the use of Care4U™ natural food protection solutions.

Food labeling legislation varies between countries. Always be sure to check the current legal situation with the appropriate local authorities, or contact DuPont Nutrition & Health.
