Herbal-Active® a natural antimicrobial
I’d like to summarize some resource material I have on-line for my natural antimicrobials, Herbal-Active™ and HerBev™ and delineate their different applications.
Click here to download a paper on Herbal-Active™ and HerBev™ – Natural antimicrobials for foods, beverages and cosmetics. (Right click and Save Link as or Save Target as…)
HerBev™ is the simplest to use for low pH, low particulates, pasteurized beverages which are hot filled. Any other beverage formulations are best with Herbal-Active™.
Herbal-Active™ is formulated for a wider variety of uses, from use as a dipping solution to inclusion as an ingredient, for example:
- rubbed into a seasoning as an anti-microbial flavouring;
- included in fruit preparations (juices, purees, concentrates, extracts etc);
- added to sauces, syrups, dressings, dairy foods or any liquid condiment or seasoning
- diluted to 1% in water as a dipping solution for meats, seafood, vegetable produce, herbs, salad greens, sprouts or any foods exposed to microbial contamination
Refer to the downloadable paper for more specifics.

Just to reiterate on the benefits of these natural preservatives, they are broad spectrum antimicrobials, extremely effective against E. coli, Salmonella and other food pathogens as well as yeasts and moulds.
At appropriate pH levels, both are strongly anti-mould and flavorless at their respective working concentrations.
Lastly, cosmetic manufacturers are a growing group of users for Herbal-Active™ and to address their particular issues a separate document has been prepared for this use.
Please leave a comment below or email functionals at cherikoff.net, briefly describe your application, provide a mailing address and we are happy to provide a sample for your evaluation. Please ask to be listed for an occasional email update on this important and exciting development for the food, beverage and cosmetic industries or use the RSS feed to get our news updates.
Cherikoff Bioactives is also looking for distributors which currently service the manufacturing sectors to assist in promoting these natural preservatives as the demand has been significant.
After all, there are few alternatives with some manufacturers turning to highly toxic nerve gas to kill micro-organisms (but leaving methanol as a residue in the beverages).
Now there is a real substitute for benzoates, sorbates, metabisulphite, parabens and other synthetic chemical preservatives.
