The global Protective Cultures market is projected to record a cumulative growth rate of nearly 10.11% during the period from 2019 to 2025. The report offers valuation and analysis of the Protective Cultures market on a global as well as regional level. The study offers a comprehensive assessment of the industry competition, restraints, revenue estimates, avenues, current & emerging trends, and industry-validated market information. The report offers historical data from 2016 to 2018 along with a forecast from 2019 to 2025 based on value (USD Million).


Protective cultures comprise of bacteria selected for their capability to arrest the pathogenic organism growth as well as inhibiting the development or spread of microbiological agents in the food products, particularly, dairy foods and processed meat products. Apart from this, protective cultures also hinder the growth of listeria monocytogenes and E. Coli in sliced, cooked, vacuum, and gas-packed meat products. The product also helps against restricting the spread of campylobacter jejuni as well as listeria monocytogenes in chicken items packaged in the modified environment.

Market Growth Dynamics

According to a study conducted by NCBI in 2005, two lactobacillus-based protective cultures, namely, lactobacillus sakei CECT 4808 & lactobacillus curvatus CECT 904 (T) were found to produce bacteriocin-like inhibitory substances after they were injected in isolation as well as in combination on beef slices. Furthermore, the inoculated beef slices both individually with lactobacillus sakei CECT 4808 strain & lactobacillus curvatus CECT 904 (T) as well as combination of both strains were vacuum packaged & stored in refrigerator at nearly over 4 +/- degree centigrade. These samples were evaluated during its twenty-eight day storage timespan for yeasts, molds, enterobacteriaceae, brochothrix thermosphacta, lactic acid bacteria, and Pseudomonas spp. They were also assessed for abnormal odor and instrumental color.

Moreover, beef slices injected with lactobacillus sakei strain had notably reduced spoilage microbial count as compared to those slices injected with lactobacillus curvatus strain. Furthermore, the inoculation of combination of both strains on beef slices also brought optimum reduction in the spoilage microbial proportion. Apparently, beef slices inoculated individually with lactobacillus sakei strain and combined lactobacillus sakei & lactobacillus curvatus strains exhibited improvement in chemical parameters & abnormal odor scores.  It was also found that the Lact. Sakei CECT 4808 strain demonstrated better preserving feature in comparison to combination of both the Lact. Strains. It was concluded that Lact Sakei 4808 strain can help in preserving & storing of vacuum packaged beef for an elongated period. The strain also exemplified restricted anti-oxidative property, thereby preventing lipid oxidative process in meat products, increasing shelf life of meat, and reducing its spoilage. Such favorable outcomes from the clinical experiments are likely to contribute remarkably towards the market growth in the coming years.

Furthermore, protective cultures produce metabolites including lactic acid, propionic acid, and acetic acid acting as antimicrobial agents. This, in turn, has enhanced the popularity of the product as well as its use in various food items.

Europe To Dominate Overall Market Expansion By 2025

The regional market growth over the forecast period is owing to the large-scale dairy item production in the European countries along with escalating concerns vis-à-vis food spoilage. Apart from this, growing health awareness among the end-users about the protective cultures in the Europe will favorably leverage the growth of the market in the continent over the forthcoming years.
