DEVELOPERS OF LAE®
In the early 1980s, the Lamirsa Group began research into a new approach to the control of pathogens in food through the application of cationic surfactants based on natural building blocks that inhibit the proliferation of a huge variety of microorganisms, including gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, moulds and yeasts.
That’s how it developed LAE® (lauric arginate ethyl), a innovative antimicrobial that is safe for human intake, as it’s based on natural compounds: lauric acid, L-arginate and ethyl alcohol.
LAE® has been subject to extensive toxicological studies at internationally recognised laboratories.
These studies have proven that this innovative substance, manufactured under processes patented by the Lamirsa Group, is totally safe and innocuous for consumers.
