Antimicrobials: Setting Up Additional Hurdles to Ensure Food Safety

Antimicrobials: Setting Up Additional Hurdles to Ensure Food Safety

Food Technology 56(6): 100, 102, 104, 106-7

Developments in antimicrobials are addressed. Antimicrobials are substances used to safeguard food by preventing the growth of microorganisms and subsequent spoilage. Antimicrobials intended to provide additional hurdles to ensure food safety have taken some new and different directions. These include combinations of antimicrobials for synergistic effect, special ingredients working with packaging, new processing aids, and ingredients combined with novel processing technologies. Other developments involve the use of ingredients with antimicrobial properties and a variety of alternative antimicrobial agents. An examination of these developments shows that there is no easy solution to the issue of food safety.
