Transglutaminase (TG) is an enzyme which is widely distributed in nature, and is composed of simple amino acid chains, and has been studied by many researchers for food use around the world. Siveele Transgluseen product is produced through fermentation process which is similar to making beer, wine and cheese, using conventional microorganisms. TG preparation is able […]
Nisin, the active ingredient in Niseen®, is a polycyclic antibacterial peptide with 34 amino acid residues used to prevent spoilage and extend shelf life of various foods by inhibiting Gram-positive spoilage and pathogens. Nisin is effective against a wide range of Gram-positive bacteria, both as vegetative cells and as spores, used worldwide since 1953 to control bacterial spoilage in […]

Nisin A and Nisin Z are of vegetal origin, two natural variants of the Nisin that are produced by Lactococcus lactis are known. They have a similar structure but differ in a single amino acid residue at position 27; histidine in Nisin A and asparagine in Nisin Z. The Nisin variants were purified to apparent […]
