Growing Demand for Anti-microbial Additive

Brazil is one of the world's largest producers and exporters of meat and animal products. Antimicrobials are used in food-producing animals, mainly as a growth promoter. Microbial pathogens are the cause of many foodborne diseases because of the ingestion of contaminated food. Several preservation methods have been developed by the companies in the country to assure microbial food safety, as well as nutritional values and sensory characteristics of food. However, the demand for natural antimicrobial agents is increasing due to Brazilian consumers' concerns related to health issues.
