Additives and Adjuncts Packaging Design

December 4, 2012

Additives and adjuncts are important ingredients in making beer for added unique flavor and also to cut costs. Products include additional grains, sugars such as dextrose and lactose, spices and herbs such as rose hips and moss, fruits, syrups, and many more. Moisture and prevention from external and microbial contamination are some of the considerations in packaging the product.

Additives and adjuncts for beer making can be in the form of liquid and solid (grains, powder, tablet, etc). They are mostly contained in various plastic packaging bags, pouches, cartons, and laminated films. Labels contain product usage, product source, manufacture and expiration dates, and other important details. Some brands have colored pictures of a glass of beer on their covers to signify product usage.
