In this study, the effectiveness of an active polyvinylalcohol-based film against Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris was assessed. The active film was fabricated by immobilizing an active compound on the surface of a polymeric matrix and then tested by putting the film in contact with a medium that had been inoculated with microbial cells. Microbiological tests showed that the film was antimicrobial against both a single strain and a culture cocktail of A. acidoterrestris, at 44 degrees C. By… CONTINUE READING
