Darryl commented on Novel packaging

We have only tested the black seed oil as proof of concept but I think any antimicrobial would work. The benefit of the oil over pomace is that it was be purified and used at only 300 ppm whereas I am sure the pomace was used at a higher level. Additionally, the pomace has to be declared as a food additive while the oil is in the packaging and not being added to directly into the food matrix so it can work on solid whole muscle foods as well.
