There are regulatory and safety concerns with currently approved food preservatives. This webcast provides an overview of solutions to attenuate those concerns by providing an alternate strategy for food processors. These solutions include an overview of naturally-derived anti-microbials such as bacteriocins, secondary microbial metabolites, naturally-derived amino acid-based anti-microbials as promising alternatives. Academic and industrial speakers will highlight current development on the status and prospects.
