So, what is nisina?

Nisina is a natural food preservative derived from the fermentation of Streptococcus lactis bacteria. It is a cationic peptide that has a broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive bacteria, including foodborne pathogens like Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus. Nisina is commonly used in the food industry to extend the shelf life of processed foods, such as canned fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and meat products, while maintaining their nutritional value and sensory qualities. Nisina is considered safe for human consumption, and its use in food products is approved by regulatory agencies worldwide. Its natural origin and effectiveness make it a popular choice for food manufacturers looking to improve the safety and quality of their products.
