Kalsec®, a global producer of food protection ingredients for the food industry, introduces DuraShield™ Antimicrobial Natural Food Protection Blends.

This product harnesses natural antioxidants combined with natural antimicrobials to improve both shelf life and food safety in a variety of applications.

“We’ve taken our industry-leading innovations in naturally sourced antioxidants to craft DuraShield blends that keep food labels clean and products secure and stable,” said Jane Quartel, Executive Director of Product Management – Food Protection in a statement. “Our DuraShield antimicrobial and antioxidant blends balance scientifically proven functional efficacy, flavour and aroma management systems to ensure the highest quality solutions that protect your brand.”

DuraShield Natural Food Protection Blends combine traditional natural antioxidant products, like rosemary and acerola extracts, with natural antimicrobial products, such as cultured dextrose and buffered vinegar. While synthetic food preservation alternatives are commercially available, they do not offer the consumer-preferred clean label that can be achieved with Kalsec’s DuraShield blends. Additionally, DuraShield is a unique 2-in-1 solution, where the ingredients are more powerful united than they are alone.


“Food manufacturers face extended distances of distribution channels, increasing demand for longer shelf life and consumer demand for short, simple product labels,” Quartel added. “Kalsec is recognized around the world as a provider of natural antioxidants for food protection. Natural antimicrobials are the next frontier in shelf-life extension and food preservation. With DuraShield our customers gain clean-label food protection they can trust.”

Kalsec is first launching DuraShield Food Protection Blends in the United States. Future rollouts into other global regions are forthcoming. Discover the science behind DuraShield Natural Food Protection Blends at
