Naturex has developed two natural and taste-free antimicrobial ingredients for the prevention of spoilage in meat products: Cleanatis M1, a patent-pending  combination of rosemary and citrus extract formulated to help inhibit the growth of Listeria; Cleanatis M2, a combination of rosemary, acerola cherry and buffered vinegar that helps inhibit Salmonella growth. The test results demonstrate that it is now possible reconcile naturalness and effective shelf life management to create natural antimicrobials for meat products that do not impair flavor or appearance.
