SEA-i® is based on the lactoperoxidase system (LPS). This antimicrobial system is widely present in nature (e.g. mother’s milk and saliva) and is characterized by strong and selective antimicrobial activity, reducing bacterial growth (bacteriostatic) and even killing bacteria (bactericidal).
WHAT IS SEA-i®
SEA-i® can be used as a label-friendly processing aid and an agent to prevent the microbial spoilage of food products as an alternative to chemical preservatives.
Thanks to its antimicrobial action, SEA-i® provides wide-ranging protection and serves as an additional barrier in the food safety system.
