Stabilak, for the natural preservation of milk

The STABILAK product activates a system of natural defenses present in the milk of all mammals, called the Lactoperoxidase System (LPS). It is used to conserve the initial quality of raw milk for human consumption. The product allows raw milk to be stored without souring for between 8 and 24 hours after milking, in temperatures ranging from 20 to 34 degrees Centigrade. The storage time can be lengthened substantially when the raw milk is of good hygienic quality.

STABILAK can be used in many ways in different situations. Specifically, it can support the agrigultural economy in the most remote areas, or where infrastructure is inadequate. It lowers the risk of diseases caused by pathogenic microorganisms, and allows for better use to be made of milk and dairy products, increasing the quantity of food available to the population and allowing for the setting up and development of new dairies without having to rely on refrigeration.

The method is a natural enzyme system approved by the Codex Alimentarius and harmless to human health.

This innovative method was invented in Cuba by the engineer Pastor Ponce Ceballo, Ph.D., of the National Centre for Agricultural Sanitation (CENSA).

The FAO has sponsored research on and promotion of the Lactoperoxidase System, and in 1998 established the Global Lactoperoxidase Programme (GLP).

Field studies have been performed with institutions and firms from more than 20 countries, among them Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guinea, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Uganda, Uruguay, Venezuela and Vietnam.

STABILAK has received important international recognition, including:

A Gold Medal from the World Organization for Intellectual Property (OMPI), for “A practical method for conserving raw milk “, Havana and Geneva, 2002;
Gold Medal at the 24th International Inventions Congress, Geneva, Switzerland, 1996;
Ecological Prize from the Office for Commercial Promotion on Behalf of Developing Countries (OSEC), Geneva, Switzerland, 1996.
