Effectiveness and application of natural antimicrobials


Natural antimicrobials such as ferments and vinegars provide a route to establishing a clean-label product without compromising on inhibition of microbial activity. Natural antimicrobials must be shown to be effective against the target organisms before they can be used commercially. This project will develop a range of tests and show proof of concept for natural antimicrobial testing.
