Lactic acid bacteria isolated from vacuum-packaged fresh meat stored at 4 degrees C were shown to produce antagonistic substances active against closely related bacteria. Growth medium, pH and growth temperature all affected the production of the inhibitory substances. Ten strains including aciduric Lactobacillus-type organisms, Carnobacterium spp. and Leuconostoc spp. were selected that produced protein-aceous substances that caused inhibition of indicator strains. These were considered to be… CONTINUE READING
