Safety, security and peace of mind
Micreos Food Safety develops natural phage products against dangerous bacteria in the food chain and is viewed as product leader in this field.
LISTEX™, the company's product against Listeria, is a culture of safe, natural and organic phages, characterized by its broad spectrum toward Listeria monocytogenes strains. It is used as a processing aid against only Listeria, during the production of meat, cheese, fish, vegetables, fruit and other food products. LISTEX™ P100 was the first phage product to be recognized as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration, USA) and USDA (US Department of Agriculture) and is used as a processing aid in many countries. It has no impact on the properties of the treated food product, and does not affect other bacteria, such as desired bacteria in starter cultures. Due to its rapid inactivation, LISTEX™ has no function in the final food product.
Customers in Europe and the US have been using the product daily to full satisfaction since 2006. Over the past years LISTEX™ has won many industry awards, including the FIE Gold Award, considered the 'Oscar' of the food industry.
In the US, LISTEX™ is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI). This means that LISTEX™ may be used as a processing aid in the certified organic production of food processing and handling according to the USDA National Organic Program Rule.
For Europe, Skal, the Dutch designated Public Authority which surveys the organic ('EKO') production on behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture, has certified that LISTEX™ is a processing aid which can be used in all organic food products in the EU which carry the EKO quality symbol.
The company is application trials with a new phage product, effective against Salmonella, branded: SALMONELEX™. More information on SALMONELEX™ and our other products is available upon request through firstname.lastname@example.org.
