The syneresis in a food product is one of the most common phenomena associated by consumers with a poor condition of food in general. Therefore, it affects the purchasing decision and the image of the manufacturer.

Syneresis is a phase separation that results in a migration of water from the inside of the product to the outside (exudate). Not only is it an indicator that your food is changing due to dreaded fermentation, but this water is the perfect culture media for some bacteria to proliferate. In practice you will see a loss of the food’s consistency and the exudate will evolve in turbidity and colour.

Something so basic that any kind of consumer is able to associate with microbiological growth is worth trying to control, right? Our natural preservatives are able to control the lactic-acid bacteria that usually causes this phenomenon. Click below to see it for yourself.
