3 Functions of Meat Cultures

1. Acidification & Inhibition: Lactobacilli, Pediococci. Helps to produce lactic acid. Inhibits growth of undesirable microbes. It lowers PH for fixation of nitric oxide with myoglobin.

2. Reducing & Flavouring: Staphylococci. To reduce nitrate to nitrite. The catalase activity degrades peroxide, thus preventing off flavours, greening and rancidity.

3. Flavouring: Yeast. Use lactic acid as food source, finish product has a mild less acidic taste.  Proteolytic & lipolytic enzymes to improve flavour.
