White Paper: Sodium Free Safety for Processed Meat
The trend for sodium reduction in meat products is clear. Food companies want to comply to the WHO advice to reduce sodium content, but often struggle with increased costs , shelf-life or flavor impact. This white paper explains how the safety and shelf-life of your meat product can be increased without any addition of sodium and at lower costs than your current way of preservation. Provian® K is a pH neutral free flowing white powder with excellent antimicrobial properties. Research results show that Provian® K is already effective at levels as low as 0.5%. The data show that Provian® K protects meat products from growth of pathogens and extends shelf-life by inhibition of the growth of Lactic acid bacteria.
