Preservatives in Bio - The Expert Answers

"Is it true that organic products are kept less than conventional ones and can deteriorate before the deadline?"

The specific treatments useful to stabilize the product in time blocking deterioration of physiological processes, are allowed only if they are based on physical principles, such as centrifugation and filtration.

These products are natural, so without any treatment which may affect the authenticity of the qualitative aspects and sensory.

This does not mean that the organic product is not safe and that its shelf life is not guaranteed. It means that the product presents closer shelf-life compared to the conventional product, but in any case it respects the terms under which the organoleptic and nutritional characteristics are guaranteed; the conditions of conservation and storage are thus fundamental to protect the bio product!
