WILD's LightShield® Technology is based on a blend of ingredients that minimizes light-activated reactions -- reducing the development of light-activated flavors (LAF) -- in milk-based items. LAFs occur due to exposure to ultraviolet and fluorescent lights found in grocery display cases. LightShield® Technology allows processors to extend flavor shelf life in milk-based and dairy-based products, while allowing the customer more variety in packaging options. LightShield®'s easy-to-use powder is water-soluble, heat-stable, and effective in both high- and low-acid products. LightShield® does not contribute any flavor or alter end-product attributes such as texture. LightShield® is also kosherable and 95/5 organic-compliant.
Useful in a wide range of applications, the LightShield® Technology entails a unique blend of components for specific dairy products including yogurt, smoothies, cottage cheese, sour cream, fluid milk, flavored milk, and milk and juice beverages. In a recent study involving a dairy and juice drink, unacceptable notes were detected after about one week in the control, while the sample made with LightShield® Technology was still satisfactory at 60 days!
