WHITE LIGHTNING

ANTI-MICROBIAL AGENT

ABOUT WHITE LIGHTNING

White Lightning is a natural, smoke-based antimicrobial agent proven to inhibit bacterial growth upon application, while not imparting any smoky
flavour.
White Lightning is a 100% liquid smoke extract produced from the pyrolysis of hardwood timber. It is then further processed to remove various carbonyl, phenol and acid groups, to isolate the active anti-microbial characteristics of smoke.

A CLEAN LABEL SOLUTION

As it is a liquid smoke extract, White Lightning is classed as a natural flavouring under FSANZ guidelines and EU regulations. There is no E number associated, making it the ultimate clean label solution for your product.

APPLICATION

White Lightning has been developed for use on a wide variety of products in the food processing industry. This includes:

+ Fresh meat and poultry
Seafood
+ Smallgoods
+ Fruit and vegetables

Dairy products

METHOD OF APPLICATION

+ Atomising
+ Dipping
+ Spraying

+ Dripping into packaging

Internal application (addition to meat emulsions, brines or marinades)

WIDE-SPECTRUM TREATMENT

Smoke uses various mechanisms on a cellular level to both destroy and inhibit growth of microorganisms.
This makes it effective against many:

+ Gram positive bacteria
Gram negative bacteria
+ Yeasts

+ Moulds

HOW IT WORKS

White Lightning has a diverse arsenal of inhibiting mechanisms, which makes it such a wide spectrum anti-microbial treatment.
+ Phenols - disturb cytoplasmic membranes, causing intracellular fluids in the microorganism to leak.
+ Carbonyls (formaldehyde and acrolein) - penetrate the cell wall and inactivate enzymes within the cytoplasm. Inhibits
growth by depriving microorganisms of vital
nutrients.
+ Organic acids (acetic, benzoic) - penetrate the cell membrane layer and deplete energy, disabling the cell from performing vital actions.
