We recommend this for semi-dry cured salumi (moulded or smoked) where a fairly slow fermentation, mild acidification, and an aromatic profile are preferred. Gives a controlled and moderate pH drop to produce a mild lactic acid taste with good colour formation and stability. Use to achieve a mild, rounded flavour typical of southern European salami types.
Use 25 grams per 100kg of meat
Use and Directions
Typically seen and used in sausage making of traditional Mediterranean type sausages like French Saucisson and Italian Salami.
Add to ground sausage, potentially with other dry ingredients early in the sausage-making process to ensure a homogenous dispersion.
