Although organic acids have been used to counteract pathogens in food for many years, there is an important need to evaluate and improve their continued effectiveness and sustainability. There is also a growing demand for foods that are produced using milder treatments, which include heat, salt, sugar, and chemicals. New technologies to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria are introduced, thereby increasing the demand for organic acids in food & beverages applications.
