Kemin Food Technologies (Des Moines, IA) has announced a new addition to its line of buffered-vinegar food-safety solutions: BactoCease NV OR Liquid. The organic vinegar ingredient is meant to offer an alternative to synthetic preservatives, and can help manufacturers “offer safe and label-friendly meat and poultry products,” Kemin says.
The firm adds that BactoCease NV products have shown efficacy in extending the shelf life of certain animal-based food products by mediating growth of food-borne pathogens, including Listeria monocytogenes. The new buffered-vinegar solution is appropriate for fresh and ready-to-eat meat and poultry products, and it will not introduce any negative impact on the texture or flavor of the finished product, according to Kemin.
“Our addition of a certified, organic version of BactoCease NV OR Liquid is another example of how Kemin responds to our customers’ need for label-friendly ingredient solutions,” said Courtney Schwartz, senior marketing communications manager for Kemin Food Technologies. “As consumers demand more ‘clean’ and organic food and beverage options, Kemin solutions like our orgaic vinegar preparation allow manufacturers to meet these needs with an effective, recognizable ingredient.”
