Nisin (also known as Streptococcus lactis peptide) is an antibacterial peptide with natural biological activity. It is a safe and efficient polypeptide active substance, which is extracted from the Streptococcus lactis fermentation product by biological technology.
Inhibits the growth of a wide range of Gram-positive spoilage and pathogenic bacteria, and is particularly effective against some heat resistant spore-former bacteria such as Bacillus stearothermophilus, Bacillus cereus, and Clostridium botulinum
Reduces thermal processing temperature and/or time and minimizes nutrients loss, and improves food quality, safety and shelf life
Cost-effective due to low usage level
Is hydrolyzed into amino acids by proteinases in the intestine after human consumption, and has no impact on natural microflora including probiotics in human body
