Niacet Poster presented during RMC meeting, San Angelo (TX) – June 19-22, 2016

In 2015 Niacet conducted studies in cured and uncured poultry applications to further investigate the efficacy of Provian K against Listeria monocytogenes and a cocktail of lactic acid bacteria. The studies were performed at the Food Research Institute, Wisconsin University (FRI*).

Previous results showed already full protection against Listeria monocytogenes at low dosages. This study showed that Provian K also inhibits the growth of a cocktail of most prevalent meat spoiling Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB). This implies that Provian K can also be used to extend shelf life of meat products. Further the study showed that Provian K shows a good performance in both cured and uncured applications.  

During the recently held RMC**-conference, San Angelo Texas (USA) a poster with the results of the FRI-study was presented.
