Probake NDV is an effective growth inhibitor of most bacteria and to a limited extent mold. It can be used as a direct replacement for calcium acetate and be used in for example bakery applications where propionates are not desired.
In bakery applications the recommended dosage for Probake NDV is 0.5 – 0.75% based on flour weight.
In other applications, the dosage depends on many factors like initial contamination, environment, and shelf-life demands. In all cases, it is advisable to carry out a challenge or shelf-life test, so that the precise effects on odor, flavor, product structure, and microbial control can be determined.
Other applications include antimicrobial, buffering agent, stabilizer, firming agent, leavening agent, calcium fortification, etc.
