So, what is nisine?

Nisine is a naturally occurring antimicrobial peptide produced by certain strains of lactic acid bacteria, including Lactococcus lactis. This versatile food ingredient has been used for many years as a natural preservative in a variety of food products, including cheese, meat, and yogurt. Nisine works by selectively inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacteria while leaving desirable bacteria unaffected. This makes it an effective and safe way to extend the shelf life of food products while maintaining their quality and freshness. Nisine has been extensively studied and is generally recognized as safe by regulatory agencies, making it a popular choice for food manufacturers looking for natural ways to preserve their products.
