The use of nisin has positive, economic, and ecologic effects, such as the reduction in damaged sterilization products and less processing times and temperatures. The first use of nisin as a preservative was for dairy products. It is one of the popular and old-aged methods to preserve dairy products such as cheese. The dairy products are quite sensitive to thermal and chemical exposure. It can alter the texture and taste of the final product. Therefore, manufacturers prefer investing in nisin as a biopreservative for dairy products, thereby encouraging the demand for this application segment.
