Light. It’s a crucial part of life. Yet too much light can have a damaging effect. We all know that it can damage your skin and fade your clothes but did you know that it can affect the taste, nutrition and flavour of some of the food and drink we love.
The effect of light on food and drink has been of increasing interest to scientists. Recent studies have looked at milk and discovered that when it is exposed to indoor light (what you might know more commonly as LED and artificial lights) the following changes can take place:
What’s the answer? Here at Noluma we are passionate about protecting food and drink from the damaging impact of light. As the leaders in light-protection technology we measure, assess, certify and help companies deliver the highest levels of light-protection. A Noluma logo certifies that packaging meets the gold standard for light protection and the product inside it has the quality, freshness and nutritional qualities it promises. Be aware that not every light protection claim can protect nutrients. Just like an SPF of 10-15, low packaging light protection does not do much to protect. Noluma only certifies packaging whose Light Protection prevents content change due to light.
We would love for you to come on this journey with us to protect the nutrients in the milk we all love. To do that simply click here and let your supermarket or favourite milk brand know that you want your milk protected from light.
