The Clean Label Movement: Using Mushroom Chitosan as a Natural Preservative

Don and Marion McDougall Hall - UPEI

Thursday, August 09, 2018, 10:00am - 11:00am

Most of the preservatives used in food industries are synthetic chemicals and have health implications when consumed on a daily basis. However, abandoning preservatives opens up a panacea of negative consequences such as severely reducing profit margins and more seriously increasing the risk of dangerous pathogen contamination that can lead to recalls and lawsuits. Learn about a natural preservative named chitosan which can be found in mushrooms and other fungi, and can be produced by using an eco-friendly method. The presentation will be by Dr. Tanzina Huq, a postdoctoral researcher at UNB.
