The majority of components of the essential oil from Cinnamomum cassia bark were identified by gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in this study. The trans-cinnamaldehyde (68.52%) was found to be the major compound. The antibacterial activity of essential oil against four food-related bacteria was evaluated. The results showed it was stronger… CONTINUE READING
