Provian NDV


Meat preservation

Processed meat products should be produced according to high standards of hygiene so that they are safe and tasty. Due to the fact that convenience is one of the main drivers of consumers, processed meat products should also have a long shelf life.  So the main challenge that meat manufacturers are facing is the production of safe, tasty products with the longest shelf life possible.

In recent years, many serious meat safety issues have resulted in consumer health problems, outbreaks of foodborne diseases and meat recalls. Those meat safety issues are mainly related with the growth of pathogens such as Listeria, Salmonella, Escherichia coli etc. In order to prevent those serious problems, the production of meat products should incorporate different hurdles in order to reduce, eliminate or control the growth of those pathogens. One of the most effective antimicrobial intervention technologies is the usage of antimicrobials or preservatives in order to prevent or control growth of microorganisms of meat products. In line with that, the Provian product line offered by Niacet includes effective antimicrobials for the production of safe meat products with extended shelf life.

Meat preservation with Provian NDV

Provian NDV is the latest clean label development in the Provian® family and it is a unique clean label no-sodium meat preservative based naturally fermented vinegar.

Globally, the production of low sodium meat products is stimulated or even enforced by many initiatives since high sodium intake is directly linked with increased blood pressure and cardiovascular diseases. Because it is potassium based, Provian NDV will not add sodium to the product it is used in and will not add sodium to a product (or even reduce it when replacing a sodium-based preservative).

Since Provian NDV is produced from naturally fermented vinegar compliant to the relevant legislations, Provian NDV can be labelled as (Dry) Vinegar, Neutralized Vinegar or Buffered Vinegar*. Provian NDV can be used in meat and poultry products labelled with a natural claim**.
