The ultimate goal of this study was developing antimicrobial food-contact materials based on natural phenolic compounds using nanotechnological approaches. Among the methyl-β-cyclodextrin-encapsulated phenolics tested, curcumin showed by far the highest activity toward Escherichia coli with a minimum inhibitory concentration of 0.4 mM. Curcumin was enclosed(More)
The effects of ultraviolet (UV) light on flavonol content in peeled onions (Allium cepa L.) and on microbial survival on their surface were investigated. The content of phenolic compounds showed a gradient within the onion bulb, with the highest level in the external dry "skin" (tunic) and the lowest level in the center. Peeled bulbs were treated with UV(More)
Retail packages of sweet corn (film-wrapped trays containing a pair of trimmed cobs) were stored at 2°C within additional plastic liners. The modified atmosphere (MA), generated in these nested packages by corn respiration, complied with the recommended range of 5–10 kPa CO2 and inhibited mold growth. Opening the liner after transfer to non-refrigerated(More)
