Today’s consumer requests to foods are challenging and it can sometimes be contradictory to general requirements for unspoiled and safe foods. For instance, the levels of salt, sugar and fat in foods are under pressure to be reduced. These changes are beneficial for human health, but they also confer an increase in water activity, which provides an increased risk for undesirable microorganisms. Also the natural trend leads to milder processing, which results in a fresher appearance of the food but also less inactivation of undesirable microorganisms.
That is why there is a strong need for natural food protection solutions that can ensure both food safety and food shelf-life.
