Natural solutions for safe, healthy and delicious food

Consumers expect manufacturers to produce safe and wholesome meat and poultry products. Raw beef, poultry, pork, and veal are common vehicles for foodborne diseases such as salmonellosis and campylobacteriosis. The meat industry is looking for effective intervention technologies to prevent pathogen contamination of meat and poultry products.

The use of PURAC® lactic acid as a decontaminant linked to GMP (good manufacturing practices) can bring important advantages to producers by reducing the prevalence of pathogens, as well as the initial bacterial counts. PURAC in a 2% to 5% solution is a suitable surface decontaminant for fresh meat (pork, beef, and poultry).

A research study showed that applying apre-chill treatment solution containing 2% lactic acid onto beef carcasses reduces the counts of Salmonella typhimurium and E. coli O157:H7 by 5 log cycles, whereas applying a water wash only results in a reduction of 3 log counts.

* Update: European Commission approves the use of lactic acid as a decontaminant for beef carcasses. Click here for more info.
