Kemin introduces vinegar preparation to combat Listeria

Kemin will launch a label-friendly vinegar preparation for the control of Listeria monocytogenes at Food Ingredients Europe.

Kemin will introduce BactoCEASE™ NV Liquid at Food Ingredients Europe in Paris next week.  BactoCEASE™ NV Liquid is a label friendly, buffered vinegar preparation for the control of Listeria monocytogenes and other food-borne pathogens in processed meat and poultry products as well as some fresh meat applications.  

“Listeria infections were up 19% last year in Europe, resulting in 270 deaths,” says Frank D’Hondt, business director of Kemin’s food technologies division in Europe. “Consumers are paying more attention to the safety of the products they are purchasing.  Because of this, meat manufacturers should be taking multiple steps to protect against food-borne pathogens. Vinegar is well recognized in maintaining food safety and extending shelf life of processed meat products.  We believe adding BactoCEASE NV to a HACCP program is an important step manufacturers can take to help ensure the safety of their meat products.”  

BactoCEASE NV is applied using lower inclusion rates than traditional lactates, which allows manufacturers to maintain product safety in a cost effective way.  Kemin scientists specialize in identifying and developing innovative, superior food technologies that help food look great, taste delicious, remain safe and stay fresh longer.
