CALCULATION OF THE COMITE´ DES INDUSTRIES DES MAYONNAISES ET SAUCES CONDIMENTAIRES DE LA COMMUNAUTE´ ECONOMIQUE EUROPEENNE (CIMSCEE) SAFETY VALUE (ΣS) FOR A SAUCE

This calculator should be used only after reading the article on the CIMSCEE model. In addition to performing the calculation the software compares the ΣS value and the pH and acetic acid concentration of the sauce against the current recommended minimum values for acidity and pH.

 

Calculator for determining the CIMSCEE safety value (Σs) for a sauce containing acetic acid
% total acetic acid
pH
% salt
% hexose
e.g. dextrose
% disaccharide
e.g. sucrose

Caution. The CIMSCEE model can under certain circumstances give an incorrect indication of product safety. Please see the article on this site for more information. This free calculator is intended for educational use only and is not a substitute for a company employing a qualified food technologist or microbiologist.
