A&B Ingredients unveiled the latest addition to its CytoGuard line of antimicrobials and shelf-life extenders—CytoGuard-YM. A high-potency natural mold inhibitor, CytoGuard-YM is designed to help protect a wide range of food products from mold growth and rancidity.
Gil Bakal, A&B Ingredients’ managing director, notes that what makes CytoGuard-YM so effective is that it has both mold inhibition and antioxidant properties.
“CytoGuard-YM is a water soluble product containing powerful natural antioxidants which are enzymatically extracted from oregano and flaxseed. While it was specifically designed for grain products such as natural and organic baked goods and tortillas, it can also play a role in such products as bakery fillings, sauces, and dairy products, among others,” he said.
CytoGuard-YM is sold in liquid form. Among its benefits are:
- Water solubility
- Effective at neutral pH
- Clean label
- Certified Kosher
Bakal notes that CytoGuard-YM can be formulated directly into products or can be applied as a spray.
