Foodborne diseases caused by bacteria are a major public health problem worldwide. Among these opportunistic pathogens we can find Bacillus Cereus, a gram-positive bacterium capable of generating spores that cause one type of these food-borne infections.

The control of this pathogen is complicated because of its ability to generate resistant spores and survive different adverse conditions. In addition to its most common matrix, such as dairy products, it is also present in meat products. In all these situations, when there is a case, it shows persistence in factories, in addition to causing commercial deterioration of the food.

To help in the control of the proliferation of these bacteria, at Amerex we have developed natural preservatives that are safe and clean label against sporogens. Do you want to see an example?
