Since Nisin (also known as Streptococcus lactic peptide) is a polypeptide, it is rapidly inactivated
in the intestine by digestive enzymes after consumption, Extensive micro-biological tests have not shown any cross resistant between Nisin and medical antibacterial drug. Nisin possesses anti-microbial activity against a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria and their spores which causes food spoilage, and especially inhibits the heat-resistant bacilli, such as B. Stearothermophilus, CI. Butyricum and L. Monocytogenes. It is a natural food preservative which is highly efficient, safe and has no side-effects. In addition,, it has excellent solubility and stability in food. It is not effective against Gram-negative bacteria, yeasts or mould.

General dosage:0.03-0.2gram per kilogram food to be processed Nisin dissolve well in low pHcondition. You may confect solution with PH3-4 and containing 5%Nisin preparation by adding diluted acetic acid, diluted citric acid or 0.02ml/l HCL first, then put it into the food and mix fully. Or, dilutegradually and add. Sometimes, Nisin can be dissolved directly in the original soup of the food. Nisin can also be used together with other food preservatives.
