Bactoferm HPS



Pediococcus acidilactici,

In stock

SKU: 11-1319 Categories: ,


Bactoferm HPS is our latest and FASTEST acting culture. It can drop pH down to about 4.8 within 6 to 12 hours, depending on fermentation temperature, using 2% DEXTROSE sugar. It will acidify extremely quickly but, is not purposed for flavor development, so that’s where the spices come in!

Save yourself the pitfalls of prolonged fermentation times that can last over 24, 36, and sometimes 48 hours. No more worrying about water-logged separating casings from prolonged exposure to high humidity, uncertainty of pH levels over long ferment times, keeping the fermentation environment optimal overnight without checking, and so many other issues that can arise from long fermentation phases.

Stuff, Ferment and start Dry Curing all in ONE DAY!

Bactoferm HPS is used by most major commercial production plants for American-style, fermented, and dry-aged sausages such as Summer Sausage and Pepperoni. Bactoferm® HPS allows super fast reduction in pH and shelf stability in less than half the time of other culture products.
