Juice-based beverages generally have relatively high levels of sugar and a low pH and this favors the growth of some spore forming bacteria (e.g. Alicyclobacillus). Additionally, Natural colors such as anthocyanins (natural red-purple) are unstable and will cause the reduction of color intensity or color change (browning). Although chemical preservatives such as sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate are widely used for the shelf life extension of juices-based beverages. Consumers’ demand for natural origin, safe and environmental friendly food preservatives has been increasing.

Fixolor™ AT is a unique and natural ferment of sugar cane containing Lactic Acid, specially designed to stabilize natural colors (anthocyanins) and to control Alicyclobacillus in juice-based beverages.
