Consumers demand labels that they can easily understand and ingredients they can recognize. BactoCEASE ™ NV is a label-friendly vinegar-based ingredient that can maximize food safety and extend shelf-life when added to processed meat, poultry and fish products.
Distilled white vinegar is a naturally-derived ingredient produced via bacterial fermentation and is well known for its versatility and traditional use in the pickling of food. As meat, poultry and fish manufacturers are looking for solutions to improve their food safety program, Kemin scientists discovered a label-friendly alternative to traditional synthetic preservatives, which helps in keeping meat, poultry and fish products safe and fresh.
The most effective approach to food safety in meat and fish processing facilities is to put multiple hurdles in place. Low storage temperature, pH, water activity, and ingredients such as BactoCEASE ™ NV can contribute to better food safety. BactoCEASE TM NV is a buffered vinegar product with an optimized flavor profile that enhances product food safety with minimal sensory impact. The product is available in both liquid and dry form.
