Hi Guys

Online searches show LS-25 as Lactobacillus sakei whilst T-SPX is Pediococcus pentosaceus and Staphylococcus xylosus.

That said they both do the same job.

Chr Hansen, the producers of T-SPX say:
The high concentration of Pediococcus Staphylococcus xylosus pentosaceus gives a controlled and moderate pH-drop. The acidification gives a mild lactic acid taste. The used Staphylococcus xylosus gives good color formation and stability. Furthermore the Staphylococcus xylosus gives a very round and mild flavor which is very typical for South European salami types such as Milano.
