About this masterclass:

Join experts from Millbo to discover how to enhance the shelf-life of your food products without additives.
This masterclass will explore how to effectively apply X-tra Guard: the botanical extract from the Rowan berry which can used in a huge variety of foods and beverages. Millbo will provide insight into the application from a technical viewpoint, its practical use, and legal regulatory information.
You will also discover how fermented flour is a product with a proven track record in the bakery industry as it is widely used as the clean label alternative to calcium propionate. The use of a special enzyme is the way to control staling which poses a solution to the two main issues facing the bakery industry: shelf-life longevity; mould and staling.
