Fresh fermented milk and cheese products contain a high level of nutrients, making it a healthy food choice with many dietary benefits. However, these dairy products have a very short shelf life due to their microbiological changes especially caused by yeasts and molds, leads very often to large economic losses. Although traditional chemical preservative - potassium sorbet has a good preservation effect, it has negative impact on organoleptic qualities. 

Befresh™ AF is the mixture of Lactobacillus Paracasei and Propionibacterium freudenreichii subsp shermanii, specially produced to control the growth of yeasts & molds in fermented milk products and white cheese products.
