Dairy products are sensitive to thermal treatment. Therefore, non-thermal treatments are witnessing increased interests in the food industry due to their capability of assuring high-quality and safety of food products such as nisin. It is an antimicrobial peptide, which is considered safe since it can be easily degraded by proteolytic enzymes of the mammalian gastrointestinal tract.

For processed cheese, nisin is the most preferred and effective preservative, where typically, the heat treatment step of pasteurization does not eliminate all the spores. The lack of nisin application would result in the outgrowth of these spores and production of gas and off-flavors and possible liquefaction of the solid cheeses and other dairy products.

Key manufacturers of nisin are based in Asia Pacific and are focusing on gaining a major market share. The increase in the per capita income and the rise in the population are the key factors, due to which the nisin market is projected to record the fastest growth in the region. Moreover, rapid urbanization in countries, such as India and China, is a key factor that has led to significant growth of the nisin market in Southeast Asia during the forecast period.
