So, what is nizin?

Nisin is a natural polypeptide that acts as a food preservative. It is produced by the bacterium Lactococcus lactis and is commonly used in processed foods such as cheese, canned vegetables, and meat products to prevent spoilage and extend shelf life. Nisin has been found to be effective against a wide range of microorganisms, including some antibiotic-resistant bacteria, making it a valuable tool for food preservation. In addition to its antimicrobial properties, nisin is also known to have other potential health benefits, including anti-tumor and immunomodulatory effects. Overall, nisin is a versatile and valuable ingredient in the food industry.
