Due to the limited shelf life outside of a freezer, we can not ship this outside of North America. Place Bactoferm in the Freezer Immediately Upon Delivery!

A patented bioprotective culture of bacterial strains which protect the sausage product from Listeria contamination while being a versatile and effective culture for acidification. Can be used for slow, traditional fermentation when environment is near 80F and will also rapidly acidify in high fermentation (US Style) temperatures of near 115F. 25grams for 100 kg of meat. To test if the bactoferm is still viable, simply shake the package. If the bactoferm is loose when shaken, like sand, then the bacteria is alive. If the bactoferm is clumped together and does not sound loose then the bacteria has died and should not be used.

    Our family has been making “salumi” as far back as the 1540’s in the old traditional way of salting and drying. We changed things up when my wife and I started by using all the “safety” advantages that modern day science dictates. This bacteria for fast ferment salumi’s and T-SPX for long term drying add favorable conditions towards safety that we consider a must.

    I used bactoferm for making unfermented summer sausage. It provides preservation against spoilage. The flavor of the sausage was outstanding.

    This Bactoferm is always a great product. I order JIT because of the limited shelf life so the order status is very important to me. The last couple of orders have said the order was “processing” but was actually being shipped. A current status would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Great product, works exactly as needed for fast fermenting meats and sausages. Just finished a batch of Summer sausage-came out great. While the price might appear costly at first glance, the yield from one packet, over 200 lbs of cured meats, makes this very economical. Highly recommend for all your fast cure recipes.

    All of the bacterial cultures  we sell from Chr Hansen are pro-biotic and contribute to color and flavor development as well as mouth feel and bio-protection. The P. acidilactici has been known to prevent pathogenic growth in dry cured products especially Listeria cells. The addition of Lactobacillus curvatus assists most in pH drop and lactic acid production. Staphylococcus xylosus is the bacteria most responsible for mouth feel and texture.
