The cultured wheat is the best substitute for current industrial petrochemical-based calcium propionate preservative protecting the environment against harmful chemicals. This way manufacturer get opportunities to strengthen their business of food preservatives by offering consumers natural, organic, and sustainable cultured wheat. While cultured wheat provides a healthy option for food preservatives, the cost remains a challenge for the manufacturer.
