Fresh Food Fresh for Years

The non-harmful bacteria ‘bisin’ has made global headlines in the food world this week as scientists have discovered that it could be used to help fresh food last for years due to it’s bacteria killing properties. It’s also been suggested by the Guardian today, that it could be added to products such as milk, sausages and sandwiches and on supermarket shelves within three years.

Dan Sullivan, an Irish microbiologist, told The Sunday Times: “It seems to be much better than anything which has gone before. It doesn’t compromise nutrient quality — we are not adding a chemical, we are adding a natural ingredient.”

A British wholesaler has begun to make sandwiches with a two-week shelf life, by replacing all the oxygen in the plastic packaging with nitrogen and carbon dioxide. The product would however not stop fruit and veg from rotting as they decompose in a different way.
