Nisin is one of the best options available for antibacterial, food grade preservation agents

Peptides are essential to modern food production. To prevent widespread infection and ensure a long, unspoiled shelf life, avoiding contamination by common foodborne bacterium is absolutely essential. To achieve this, the employment of an antibacterial agent with a broad spectrum of efficacy is a high priority. Nisin has shown the ability to consistently target and prevent common pathogens and organisms such as Listeria monocytogenes, Bacillus cereus and Staphylococcus aureus. Thanks to its increasing popularity, major shelf life and food safety concerns have been largely addressed to the point of achieving a strong sense of security about food preservation amongst consumers.
