High Performance Food Preservative Nisin

High Performance Food Preservative Nisin
Product Detailed
1) a natural preservative,safe to human body. 2)Low dose and high efficacy 3)ISO 9001,ISO 22000

Nisin (also known as Streptococcus lactic peptide) is a polypeptide with 34 amino acid residues widely used as a food preservative. Nisin possesses anti-microbial activity against a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria and their spores in food. It is catabolized to amino acid in human body, so it is no harm or vice-effect to people. Extensive micro-biological tests have not shown any cross resistant between Nisin and medical antibacterial drug. It is a natural food preservative which is highly efficient, safe and has no side-effects. In addition, it has excellent solubility and stability in food.

Character: Nisin is white color powder with hydrous potency 1000IU/mg. It is stable in room temperature and acidity condition even heated. It can endurance 30 min in pH=2.0, 121 °C and 15 min in pH=3.0, 121 °C. But at the high pH, the stability of activity can be greatly affected. Molecular Formula: C143H228N42O37S7

1. Fresh milk and dairy products:Adding 0.05g/kg nisin to fresh milk, it can control bacterial spoilage and extend the shelf life to 2-3 times. Revealed by American experiments, adding nisin to reduced fat milk, no salt butter,degrease milk and flavoured milk, it can extend the shelf life to six weeks even at 45 °C .

2. Liquid egg and egg products: Adding 0.05-0.1g/kg nisin can efficiently inhibit bacillus spp and extend the shelf life from seven days to one month.

3. Salad and sauce:Adding nisin to salad or sauce, it can efficiently control the growth of lactococcus lactis and spore and extend the shelf life to four times. The recommended amount is 0.05-0.2g/kg.

4.Canned foods:Showed by many research, adding nisin to canned vegetable, it can control bacterial spoilage and shorten the time of heat processing required; adding nisin to canned rice wine, it can reduce 90% time of the heat processing, enhance product quality; adding nisin to canned bean, the shelf life can be extent to two years even at 55 °C .

5. Cured meat/sea foodsThe shelf life extend to 2-3 times when using nisin. We can spray nisin liquid on the surface of the products or add nisin into products with the dosage of 0.1-0.2g/kg.

6. Canned soup/juice and drinkadding 0.1-0.2g/kg can efficiently inhibit the growth of bacteria spores.
