Bactoferm – Flavor of Italy is best suited for the fast fermented sausages such as Pepperoni or American Style Salami or for fuller flavors of all other recipes like Sopressata. Flavor of Italy is a new culture blend that is used extensively in the European market for enhancing the quality of the finished product while increasing its bio-protection. Great culture for fast fermenting recipes that contains plenty of flavor developing bacteria for the longer aging period. Has a distinctive Mediterranean flavor and antagonistic properties against Listeria.
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.

My first order went out without a hitch. The next order seems to be hung up in their software because it says for the last 9 days…processing….
I sent a request for an update and they said they would ask their manager. From other reviews the hang up of orders pending seems to happen often.
I smart guy would have their I.T. support software developer fix the code.
I think the products are fine, just order fufillment issues.

I was disappointed to see that no chill pack was used to protect the product from heat during shipping. Hopefully it will be OK.

The sausage maker has made my ordering a one stop shop. I am able to order online or call directly to get everything I need. I produce 200 to 300lbs if meat a month and have yet to have anything less than an amazing experience. Johnny Paa has been the best resource when it comes to adding a flavor or tweaking an existing recipe.
Flavor of italy has been hard to get but they always get me what I need. This culture is amazing

I understand covid allows things down, but it took a long time to get here. I was hoping there would be directions on the product, but there weren’t any… just tried it last night in a salami.. still fermenting at 78ÃÂ°F… don’t know how long fermentation takes… been about 14 hours now.. ph still at 5.7…I hope it didn’t go bad in transit!
