The vision

Hero wanted

We are looking for THAT ONE good strain that has the advantage over all the other bacteria and can successfully prevail over the others.

Good bacteria are defined as any that...

  • have no effect on the sensory properties of the product, i.e. smell, taste and colour.
  • are not harmful to humans (they meet QPS criteria)
  • can grow at low temperatures, such as in the refrigerator

 

Finding the hero

But where?

Nature is always so creative. For this reason, we were most likely to find a strain like this in its natural habitat.

In this case, in cooked ham, where it is found as a part of the natural microflora.
