NisinZ® Vegetal Nisin Z is a mixture of closely related antimicrobial polypeptides produced by strains of Lactococcus lactis subsp. Lactis obtained from sauerkraut. Recognized internationally as a well-defined, highly effective food antimicrobial agent with low toxicity and a well-established history of safe use, nisin is currently approved for use in a wide range of food products, including cheese and cheese products, dairy desserts, meat and meat products, canned vegetables and soups and bakery products in various countries around the world.

 

NisinZ® is effective against Gram-positive bacteria and has also been shown to be effective against Gram-negative bacteria when applied as part of the hurdle technology approach (simultaneous application of several processes or barriers) to food safety and preservation. NisinZ® inhibits spoilage microorganisms including lactic acid spoilage bacteria, thus helping to prolong shelf life and retain food quality. It has also been used increasingly as a primary intervention to inactivate or inhibit the outgrowth of pathogenic food microorganisms such as Listeria, Staphylococcus, and Mycobacterium, and the spore forming bacteria, Bacillus and Clostridium, thereby helping to increase food safety.
