Packaged Foods Should Be Kept In The Dark
Scientific studies show that light of any kind can cause food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetic products to degrade faster. Whether the light is in the grocery store, home, refrigerator, or through a window, it can cause products to expire before the expiration date.
With milk and other dairy products, exposure to light affects the taste, freshness, and nutritional value of the food. When more consumers understand the impact of light on milk and other products they consume, they will find packaging that protects these products from light degradation.
The first company to develop technology to assess, measure, and certify light protection in packaging is Noluma. A Noluma™ certification means that a product or food’s freshness, nutrition, stability, and sensory qualities are protected from light exposure as best as scientifically possible during the full shelf life of the product.
