Currently, most natural cured meat products depend on low levels of nitrite to provide limited protection against Listeria and Clostridium. However, consumers are more aware of clean-label ingredients, especially when buying meat and poultry.

Fixolor™ PK can meet consumer demands for a cleaner ingredient statement while providing enhanced food safety and longer shelf life, which is effective against Listeria and Clostridium, and also provides desirable cured meat color and flavour.
