Protect the flavour, promote the brand

Many consumer products are sensitive to UV light. Most types of beer are sensitive to UV radiation and visible light up to 510 nm. Formation of 3-methylbut-2-ene-1-thiol (3-MBT) out of hops is then triggered. The smallest amount of 3-MBT in beer is already noticeable. To protect the flavor of your beer, we developed LightGuard RGB OXN, available in green and amber.

Available in solid and liquid formats, our LightGuard can be used alone or with other additives or colorants to get the right coverage.

Used in: Beer/wine.
