Carcass treatment: Reducing contamination

Lactic acid is a well known way to boost meat treatment – essential for fighting pathogen in increasingly stretched and complex production chains.

Our PURAC® lactic acid helps you reduce meat contamination by reducing both the prevalence of pathogens, as well as the initial bacterial counts. You can use PURAC in a 2% to 5% solution for surface decontaminant in fresh meat (pork, beef, and poultry). And it works…

Reducing pathogens in beef carcasses

In fact a research study showed that applying a pre-chill treatment solution containing 2% lactic acid to beef carcasses reduced the counts of Salmonella typhimurium and E. coli O157:H7 by 5 log cycles. When a water wash only was applied the result was a reduction of just 3 log counts.
