Development of a novel antimicrobial absorbent food pad to extend the shelf life and quality of fresh red meat products

Host Organisation: P.T.A. Food Lab & Nutritional Services LTD
Project Budget: 236.672,00 €
IDEK Funding: 165.670,00 €

An innovative antimicrobial system will be developed, which relates to an antimicrobial absorbent food pad that releases antioxidants to kill or inhibit the growth of foodborne pathogens in the meat liquid exudes and which will confine the antimicrobial compounds and absorbed liquids so that they will not come in contact with the food product and which those antioxidants break down to safe/inert bio-products that can be used as antimicrobials and oxidative gases in vacuum sealed pre-packed meat products.
