Vinegars for Preservation

Vinegar – Acetate-based Fermentates

Since thousands of years, vinegar has been used for its beneficial effects in food preservation. In today’s day and age, we have developed enhanced variations of traditional methods to deliver added value to consumers. Our vinegar applications are efficient bacteriostatic ingredients, with no negative effect on the pH or taste of the final product.

These vinegar applications are available in liquid and powder forms, also including sodium-free. For shelf-life extension, vinegar can be used alone or in synergy with lactates. These agents prevent the growth of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, including certain pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes. They also protect the meat from mold and yeasts.

These natural vinegar applications from Galactic do not alter the organoleptic properties of the product and is a clean-label alternative to acetate additives. Used at a low concentration, it enables manufacturers to cut down on costs.
