Defending Your Food, Naturally


Beta Carotene

Our Fooditive Preservative, derived from beta-carotene found in carrot side streams, is a testament to our commitment to natural, sustainable, and effective solutions. This plant-based preservative addresses the pressing need in the food industry for clean label ingredients, offering a compelling alternative to synthetic preservatives.


Fooditive, we don't just innovate; we revolutionize. We use every part of the plant, turning what others see as waste into the key ingredients of our groundbreaking products. It's a circular economy principle that's good for both the industry and the environment.

Fooditive's Beta-Carotene Preservative plays a critical role in reducing food waste and ensuring food safety. By effectively inhibiting the growth of spoilage microorganisms such as mould and yeast, our preservative extends the shelf life of various food products. This allows food to stay fresh for a longer period, reducing the need for frequent restocking and thus contributing to lesser food waste. In addition, our preservative helps maintain the quality and safety of the food, ensuring consumers enjoy their meals just as they're meant to be - fresh, delicious, and safe.

Preserve Longer, Waste Less

Production Process

The journey from carrot to preservative is a careful dance of precision and science. Our process begins with hot water extraction and pH control, followed by a treatment stage that includes first centrifugation. This separates the solids from the liquids, yielding an insoluble component and a water-soluble pectin component. Post ethanol addition, we repeat the process until we've extracted all the goodness we need from the carrots. The preservative is then air-dried to obtain the final product.


Our preservative's versatility makes it a fantastic fit for a variety of food products. It's suitable for bakery goods, dairy alternatives, sauces, soups, cheeses, and frozen desserts. It's also perfect for pre-made food, ensuring your meals stay fresh, tasty, and safe, from production to the dinner table.
