Vitiva Introduces Organic-Compliant Fish Preservative

October 31, 2011

Made from mineral-rich sea salt and a proprietary plant extract formula, VFish can increase yield, increase antimicrobial stability, and reduce the risk of rancidity in prepared fish and fish products.

Natural extracts supplier Vitiva (Markovci, Slovenia) has introduced VFish, a shelf-life extender for conventional or certified-organic fish products.

Made from mineral-rich sea salt and a proprietary plant extract formula, VFish can increase yield, increase antimicrobial stability, and reduce the risk of rancidity in prepared fish and fish products. VFish works by upholding a product’s water-binding capacity, as Vitiva CEO Ohad Cohen explains:

Monitoring water-binding capacity is a priority for the fish industry since it affects the succulence and tenderness of the finished products as well as economic aspects of the operation. VFish is an excellent choice for food processors desiring to improve seafood water-binding capacity without addition of phosphates, while controlling for rancidity and microbial instability. Moreover, this completely natural product line enables fish processors to employ clean-label solutions for their products while gaining extensive shelf-life and avoiding synthetic ingredients that might have the potential to harm.

VFish can be customized based on batch size, technological needs, and processing operations.
