Consumers are more critical than ever when they go to the supermarket. They want to know what they are eating, so they scan the labels to find it out. Especially when it comes to meat, poultry and fish. They look for “clear” labels with recognisable ingredients like buffered vinegar. Familiar kitchen ingredients will provide them the trust that they look for to keep their food safe and fresh for as long as possible.
Kemin Buffered Vinegar is an alternative for chemical preservatives. It’s a label friendly food safety ingredient with a balanced flavour profile designed to protect meat, poultry and processed fish products as well as deli salads from foodborne pathogens like Listeria monocytogenes. The product efficiently extends product shelf life by retarding the growth of spoilage bacteria.
Microbial spoilage is a key factor in the shelf life of a variety of protein rich food products. Testing has shown that vinegar-based ingredients protect Ready-to-Eat (RTE) foods and other processed meat, poultry and fish products from spoilage bacteria. Moreover, these natural ingredients meet the increasing consumer demand for clear labels and low sodium products while reducing total plate counts.
