Update on preservatives

Herbal-Active™ has come a long way in a few short years.

However, there are now many companies using Herbal-Active™ in products as diverse as liquid stevia (a natural sweetener), jerky, pesto, nutritional supplements, gluten-free bread (we have an encapsulated variant of Herbal-Active™ for this purpose) and more. Even cosmetic manufacturers have been able to replace chemical preservatives and go natural.
