applications

Provian P is developed as a functional composition aimed at shelf life extension and preservation of meat products. Because of the synergistic effect between sodium acetate and sodium propionate, Provian P is very effective in inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacteria, like Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella and EHEC, ensuring food safety. Moreover, microbiological tests have shown that Provian P extends the shelf life of meat products through growth inhibition of most prevalent lactic acid bacteria. The sensory evaluation has proven that Provian P has no adverse effects on the sensory parameters of meat products.

Moreover, Provian P does not significantly change the pH of cooked meat products. As a free-flowing powder, Provian P can be applied in various processing steps and also in dry blends. All ingredients of Provian P are inert and will not react with other ingredients used in meat recipes.

Available grades and packaging

Legislation
Both sodium propionate and sodium acetate are approved food additives according to EU and FDA legislation and JECFA (FAO/WHO), FCC and Japanese food standards. The maximum dosage level of Provian depends on local legislation and food type. Research has shown a shelf life extension by inhibiting LAB growth spoilage using 0.5%. Provian P is very effective in pathogen control. For the control of Listeria monocytogenes, we recommend using 0.5% (w./w). The control of Salmonella was obtained already at 0.25% (w/w). The dosage limit in the US is 0.6% w/w for usage in meat-based on FSIS regulations. To determine the optimal dosage for the intended application, testing is recommended.

Stability
Provian P is stable for 2 years from the date of production. Physical stability and appearance can change before the end of shelf-life if the product is not stored in the closed original packing, kept dry and at room temperature or if the pallets are stacked.

Packaging
Provian P is available in 25 kg PE valvebags.
