Tannins and human health: a review.
The aim of this review is to summarize and analyze the vast and sometimes conflicting literature on tannins and to provide as accurately as possible the needed information for assessment of the overall effects of tannin effects on human health. Expand
Antibacterial activity of some essential oil components against five foodborne pathogens
Antibacterial activity of 11 essential oil constituents against Escherichia coli, E. coli O157 :H7, Salmonella typhimurium, Listeria monocytogenes, and Vibrio vulnificus was tested at 5, 10, 15, andExpand
Cultivar, Maturity, and Heat Treatment on Lycopene Content in Tomatoes
A comparison of the color readings taken from tomatoes at the equatorial region with those of thehomogenate prepared from the same region showed that the hue of tomato homogenate was a better indicator of lycopene content than tomato surface hue. Expand
Antibacterial mechanism of allyl isothiocyanate.
The effectiveness of AITC in inhibiting bacteria at all growth stages and its strong activity in vapor phase support its application in food preservation. Expand
Bacterial Effect of High Pressure CO2 Treatment on Foods Spiked with Listeria or Salmonella.
High pressure CO2 treatment technique could possibly be applied to reduce microbial load in some food systems, but the use of N2 gas under similar experimental conditions did not kill the spiked bacteria in these four food systems. Expand
Growth and Survival of Salmonella montevideo on Tomatoes and Disinfection with Chlorinated Water.
The survival on tomato fruits of a rifampicin-resistant strain of Salmonella montevideo, the alleged source of the 1993 multistate outbreak of salmonellosis, was affected by inoculum dose and inoculation site (unbroken surface or wounds and stem scars), as well as by the medium used to deliver the bacterium. Expand
Bactericidal activity of isothiocyanate against pathogens on fresh produce.
The bactericidal activity of allyl and methyl isothiocyanate (AITC and MITC) was tested with a rifampicin-resistant strain of Salmonella Montevideo and streptomycin-resistant strains of EscherichiaExpand
Detoxification of Aflatoxins in Foods and Feeds by Physical and Chemical Methods 1.
The combined use of physical and chemical treatment procedures appear to provide a better prospect than the use of only a single treatment procedure for detoxification of aflatoxin B1 in foods and feeds. Expand
Antibacterial Activity of Carvacrol, Citral, and Geraniol against Salmonella typhimurium in Culture Medium and on Fish Cubes
The comparable inhibition of these strains of Salmonella and species of Gram-negative bacteria by carvacrol and geraniol support their application as potential antibacterial agents in food systems. Expand
