Citrus Essential Oils to Gain Popularity as Natural Preservatives
Emphasis on preservative packaging continues to rise in the food & beverage sector, as longer shelf-life gains ground as an essential requirement in line with the modern-day trade practices that involve time-intensive transportation of products across borders and oceans.
Although the use of synthetic antimicrobials and preservatives is prevalent among F&B companies to prevent spoilage, the risk of chronic disease from a number of commonly-used synthetic preservatives is a persisting challenge in the marketplace.
For instance, the risk of developing cancer and lung inflammation has been associated with butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) or butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), which are used to curtail oxidation and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in food products.
This has further induced a paradigm shift in consumer preference toward food & beverage products based on natural ingredients and preservatives.
Citrus essential oils have emerged as a key solution to replace synthetic food preservatives, owing to their rich limonene content, a monoterpene that exhibits strong antibacterial and antifungal properties.
The adoption of citrus essential oils also remains upheld by their potential application in biodegradable food packaging solutions, and in gelatin or chitosan for improving physicochemical properties of packaging.
Rising concerns regarding the environment and health amongst the global population are promoting the use of natural preservatives and packaging in food companies around the world.
Citrus Essential Oils Gain High Palpability as Green Pesticides
Adverse environmental and health impacts associated with prolonged use of pesticides and insecticides on crops, along with concerns regarding pollution of aquatic systems that result in groundwater contamination and reduced soil productivity, allude to negated agricultural produce outcomes worldwide.
Recognizing the concerns, farmers are preferring the use of natural alternatives to ward of insects and abate the growth of bacteria and fungi, wherein citrus essential oils have gained increased visibility in light of their repellent, ovicidal, larvicidal, toxic, and antifeedant properties.
The lipophilic constituents of essentials oil make them toxic to a wide variety of insects and pests. Essential oils have been deemed eco-friendly and labeled as green alternatives to synthetic pesticides.
The array of benefits associated with citrus essential oils have sparked rigorous research toward the production of essential oil-based insecticides.
Changing Properties of Active Ingredients Remains a Key Concern for Manufacturers
Essential oils produced from lemons, oranges, and other citrus fruits under different conditions and seasons are linked with distinctive changes in their properties based on their inhibitory efficacy against different strands of bacteria and fungi.
The time of harvest, the ripeness of fruits, and the season of production have significant impacts on the properties of citrus essential oils.
With such changes in key properties of active ingredients used in citrus products, manufacturers are taking preventative measures to maintain apt conditions considering the season of harvest, maturation degree, and fruit cultivar.
Further, companies utilizing citrus essential oils in their products need to ensure that the citrus essential oils exhibit the properties it is being used for.
