Natural preservatives for cookies


We are starting a cookie business. Has anyone had any experience with natural preservatives? How about mixed Vitamin E. I see this in ingredient labels and know that it does preserve cookies etc. How much would I use? Thanks

Vitamin E preserves the oil portion of cookies baked with oil or nut paste. It will NOT preserve eggs or butter.

Please contact the FDA website online to find out which preservatives are acceptable for foods. You will have to buy food grade ingredients if you want to use natural materials for preservation of foods. There may be documentation required for you to legally sell foods with such additives.

Look up the regulations of the PA Department of Agriculture, also online. They spell out the details that we can't possibly list here.

It is a known fact that rice is rich in carbohydrates. Since, fried rice is one among the specialties of Chinese restaurant, make sure that you avoid the intake of more amount of rice. Choosing brown rice would be beneficial to you, as it contains good amount of fiber in it. It would be worth noting the fact that at least 45 g of fat is present in one average cup of rice.
