Clean Label Ingredient Protects Against E. Coli and Salmonella
DefenStat, by Newly Weds Foods, is a clean label ingredient for raw meat and poultry. Part of the IsoStat Products Group, it protects against the three systemic failures leading to E. coli and Salmonella outbreaks.
According to the manufacturer, DefenStat inhibits pathogen proliferation throughout product processing and distribution, substantially reducing potential for cross-contamination and, enhances E. coli and Salmonella susceptibility to heat. This intervention gives processors, retailers, foodservice operators, and consumers an added level of defense against these food safety concerns.
DefenStat can be applied directly to ground products and to whole muscle meats by marination. When incorporated into uncooked meat and poultry during processing, this label-friendly antimicrobial ingredient inhibits E. coli and Salmonella growth known to occur in cold chain distribution.
DefenStat was developed exclusively by Newly Weds Foods. All ingredients are “safe and suitable” and Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA. The product has also received a Letter of No Objection from the USDA.
