Nisaplinâ„¢Antimicrobial from Danisco is now providing a opportunity to replace
chemical preservatives in meat products while improving the level of food safety
and protecting shelf life.
The approval comes from Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), which
has approved Nisaplinâ„¢, the commercial preparation of nisin A, for use in
processed meat, poultry and game products.
â€œThis approval paves the way for the introduction of Danisco's patented and
highly efficient nisin-based blends,â€ says David Charest, Meat Food Protection
Director for Danisco.

against common spoilage bacteria, such as Gram-positive lactic acid bacteria and
Brochothrix thermosphacta, and post-processing contaminants, including the major
food pathogen Listeria monocytogenes.

manufacturers can maintain a high quality of their meat products over an
extended shelf life. Other benefits include less spoilage losses, and a reduced
need to use chemical preservatives, such as nitrites, nitrates and sorbic
