A Breakthrough in Mould Inhibition:

SHIELD V Plus Dry represents a leap forward in the quest for mould inhibition in bakery products. By harnessing the power of buffered vinegar and botanical extract, manufacturers can now benefit from a consumer-friendly option that not only preserves product quality but also lengthens shelf life without compromising on sensory attributes.


Buffered Vinegar- The Key to Natural Preservation:

At the heart of SHIELD V Plus Dry lies the remarkable preservation properties of buffered vinegar. Since a long time, vinegar was recognized as a natural antimicrobial agent, but its application in bakery products was limited due to potential sensory alterations. However, through innovative buffering techniques, SHIELD V Plus Dry preserves the antimicrobial efficacy of vinegar while offering a balanced flavour profile.

This means that it can be seamlessly incorporated into various baking processes without compromising its mould-inhibiting properties.
