Description

The control of Total Plate Count (TPC) is a major challenge to global food manufacturers. Polylysine has been accepted as food antimicrobial of natural origin and it is acknowledged as label-friendly. Polylysine shows high antimicrobial activity against fungi, Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, exhibits good water solubility and heat stability, and does not have an unpleasant odor. While impure Polylysine contains more or less chloride and inorganic contents, increasing the risk of endotoxin and possible interaction with other ingredients.

 

Epolyly® L25 is pure ε-Poly-L-lysine concentrate derived naturally from a submerged aerobic fermentation of Streptomyces albulus PD-1. Epolyly® L25 is an ideal natural broad-spectrum antimicrobial to inhibit Total Plate Count (TPC) in a variety of foods.
