Nisin (E234) in liquid eggs

Following the Amendments of Directive 95/2/EC, now Nisin (E234) will be allowed also in pasteurized liquid eggs in EU.

In the European Commission’s words, nisin (E234) ” is not a safety concern and is justified from a technological point of view to extend the shelf life of the product and also to prevent the growth of food poisoning spore-forming species, like Bacillus cereus, which may survive from pasteurisation treatment.”
