PhageGuard S™: Natural Phage Product Against Salmonella

The company Micreos has found that nature offers its own best solutions, as exemplified by the ability of phages to eliminate pathogenic bacteria. PhageGuard S™ consists of a watery solution containing two Salmonella-specific bacteriophages, Fo1a and S16, which are produced and purified separately, and mixed in equal concentrations. These phages utilize different receptor molecules, providing two modes of action that have been shown to knock out several different species of Salmonella. FDA & USDA have approved PhageGuard S as a ‘GRAS’ (Generally Recognized as Safe) food processing aid against Salmonella in poultry, pork and beef.
