Micocin®, CanBiocin’s food technology product is based on the addition of natural lactic acid bacteria to vacuum-packaged ready-to-eat meats. The added lactic acid bacteria act as a natural protector – enhancing the food safety through prevention of growth of pathogenic bacteria causing foodborne disease, such as Listeria.
- In 2005 Micocin® was granted GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe) status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and is an approved food additive to control the growth of Listeria monocytogenes.
- CanBiocin’s industrial partner, Griffith Laboratories Ltd., a global manufacturer of food ingredients, is currently marketing the product in Canada, U.S. and Central and South America.
- Currently there are four pending patent applications in seven jurisdictions.
