Corbion Purac has announced that results demonstrate that its Opti.Form does more than provide top shelf Listeria control, it also delivers extended shelf life, improved cook yield, purge control and texture enhancement of finished meat and poultry products.

Two decades ago, Corbion Purac developed the Opti.Form portfolio, combining lactate with diacetate to control Listeria growth in meat and poultry products. Over the years, it claims Opti.Form has become widely recognized as the industry standard for Listeria control.

Twenty years of industry use and academic research has provided a plethora of data showing theOpti.Form portfolio also extends shelf life, increases cook yield, reduces purge and improves texture of processed meat product, the company claims.

"Consumers want safe meat and poultry products that look great, taste delicious and stay fresh longer," said David Charest, VP Meat Industry. "With Opti.Form, our customers can deliver on all those expectations. The new data validates the comprehensive value that Opti.Form provides."

The company says that research indicates that the Opti.Form formulations are optimised to extend shelf life while lowering salt levels; improve moisture control delivering enhanced cook yield from 3-6%; and enhance sliceability characteristics.

"We are focused on providing food safety solutions which include not only a diverse portfolio but also industry leading analytical tools backed by our team of food safety and preservation experts," Charest said.<
