LIGHT DAMAGE IS REAL
Not every bottle that is white is light-protected.
Scientific studies have shown that light of any kind–including LED or fluorescent indoor light–can significantly degrade the quality of packaged goods.
Foods, cosmetics, beverages and pharmaceuticals are all vulnerable to light damage when their packaging has inadequate light protection.
Noluma is the only company with a patented measurement technology and certification services assuring you and your consumers that your products are light-protected.
Noluma, a technology startup that measures, assesses, guides and certifies light-protected packaging, released evidence highlighting the rapid loss of key nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin D and riboflavin in dairy as a result of indoor light exposure and inadequate packaging.
The report, Packaged Foods Should Be Kept in the Dark: Consumers Shouldn’t Be, finds that damage to nutritional values and taste comes from all kinds of light, including LED, retail and refrigerator lighting. However, light-protected packaging can shield dairy products from light damage and preserve freshness, quality, taste and nutrients when certified for optimal protection.
