Delvo®Guard, clean label food protection against yeast and mold

Do you want to add additional protection to fresh dairy products that benefits people, planet and profit? Delvo®Guard from DSM is a range of clean label, protective cultures that prevent yeast & mold growth in dairy products and extend shelf life without sacrificing taste or texture.

The Delvo®Guard range consists of two cultures with unique strains that protect fresh dairy more effectively thanks to their synergistic effects against yeast and mold. Delvo®Guard can add valuable days or even weeks to the shelflife of dairy products.

This benefits your bottom line through products that last longer with fewer complaints and returns; it benefits both consumers and the planet by reducing unnecessary food waste; and it provides an innovation platform for new product development – for example in the booming area of ‘on the go’ dairy snacks and dairy products with inclusions of fruit, cereals or chocolate that have traditionally suffered from fungal spoilage.

As a clean label solution, Delvo®Guard supports your sustainable brand positioning by enabling better, healthier food that consumers are craving for.
