Traditionally, the bugs find their way to the sausage from the surrounding environment. But these days, industrial manufacturers add a starter culture of bacteria to the meat instead. A study published in the journal Applied Environmental Microbiology found that salami made with wild bugs scored higher with tasters than salami made with a starter culture. During the experiment, the researchers had a salami manufacturer create two batches. A starter was added to one batch and not to the other. Researchers saw an explosive growth in the starter bacteria. Very soon, they began to produce molecules that are usually made later. In contrast, a rainbow of species cropped up gradually in ...
