Function of Poem DM-25H

Bacteriostatic Emulsifier

  1. Emulsifier mix which diglycerine monomyristate is used as a main ingredient
  2. Having a wide range of bacteriostatic effect against heat resistant bacterial spores (mid temp. ~ high temp) and other bacteria
  3. This product remains fluid in low temperature during storing condition so that it is easy to handle

Structure of Diglycerine monomyristate

Dispersibility in water

POEM DM-25H enables to disperse into low temperature water easily.

POEM DM-25H Bacteriostatic Effect to Heat Resistant Bacterial Spores (Moderate Temperature Bacteria) : Culture Media Test

  1. Standard agar culture media + Emulsifier
  2. Autoclave sanitation (121°C, 20min)
  3. Put 100CFU active spore suspension liquid on a plate
    (Specimen under test: Bacillus licheniformis, Bacillus coagulans)
  4. Spread active spore suspension liquid and solidify the culture media
  5. Store at 37°C, cultivate for 2 days and count colony


Bacteriostatic Effect Against Cross-Contamination in Milk (20°C, 1week)
  1. Add DM-25H into 100% milk
  2. Maintain at 65°C for 10 min
  3. Go through Piston homogenizer (15MPa)
  4. Fill into a bottle
  5. Put it for autoclave sterilization
  6. Add 20CFU cross-contaminated bacteria(B. licheniformis/B. flexus)
  7. Store at 20°C for 1Week
  8. Count living bacteria in 1ml of test culture


Bacteriostatic Effect to Soy Beverage

Use general soy beverage (Solid soy 5%)

  1. Add POEM DM-25H
  2. Maintain at 65°C for 10min
  3. Go through TK homogenizer (1000rpm. 3min)
  4. Fill into a can, take out some cross-contaminated bacteria (104CFU)
  5. Put it for hot water sterilization (65°C, 30min)
  6. Store at 30°C for 4 weeks
  7. Measure Ph, antibacterial evaluation by flavor
