Carcass treatment: Reducing contamination
Lactic acid is a well known way to boost meat treatment – essential for fighting pathogen in increasingly stretched and complex production chains.
Our PURAC? lactic acid helps you reduce meat contamination by reducing both the prevalence of pathogens, as well as the initial bacterial counts. You can use PURAC in a 2% to 5% solution for surface decontaminant in fresh meat (pork, beef, and poultry). And it works…
Reducing pathogens in beef carcasses
In fact a research study showed that applying a pre-chill treatment solution containing 2% lactic acid to beef carcasses reduced the counts of Salmonella typhimurium and E. coli O157:H7 by 5 log cycles. When a water wash only was applied the result was a reduction of just 3 log counts.
