PURAC®: Lactic acid for meat

PURAC® is our natural lactic acid that helps reduce bacteria in fresh meat during processing. Produced naturally as part of the body’s metabolism, PURAC has been used and trusted by the meat industry for many years.

PURAC® takes its name from a simple contraction of the words ‘pure acid’. When you spray (or mist) PURAC directly onto the surface of a meat carcass or trims, it reduces microbial load and improves meat safety.

In fact over the past 20 years Corbion has helped dozens of customers around the world benefit from the use of lactic across a wide range of applications – including of course the reduction of bacteria in their meat products.
