Healthy Oils from Corteva Agriscience can help maintain the shelf life that keeps packaged foods fresh, without the artificial preservatives that many consumers today perceive as unhealthy. Being free from artificial ingredients, preservatives, or additives is one of the top ranked descriptors of healthy food for about half of all consumers. Healthy Oils help meet consumers expectations while contributing to longer-lasting food and leads to less food waste.
While taste continues to be a top driver of food choice, increasingly, consumers want to buy products that help themselves and food companies reduce food waste. Better nutrition will not benefit the growing population when taste is compromised and must be disposed of too quickly. Extending how long quality ingredients like oil last, not only supports better diets, but also decreases the cost and environmental impact associated with excess food waste.
