Microbial spoilage is another cause for off-odour and off-flavour, key factors in the shelf life of meat, poultry and fish products. Fresh or processed meat is very susceptible to microbial spoilage due to its water activity level, which supports and promotes the growth of microorganisms. Different types of spoilage bacteria may proliferate, depending on possible contamination during any step of processing and environmental conditions during storage of the unfinished meat product. Kemin provides food safety solutions to address your product’s specific conditions.
