Comparison of antimicrobial activity of Cinnamomum zeylanicum and Cinnamomum cassia on food spoilage bacteria and water borne bacteria

  title={Comparison of antimicrobial activity of Cinnamomum zeylanicum and Cinnamomum cassia on food spoilage bacteria and water borne bacteria},
  author={Pritam D. Nimje and Hemant Garg and Anuragini Gupta and Niharika Srivastava and Monica Katiyar and C Ramalingam},
The objective of this study is to compare the antibacterial activity of the essential oil from bark of two cinnamon species, Cinnamomum zeylanicum and Cinnamomum cassia and their chemical constituents in order to develop an effective and economic food spoilage resistant spray. Their antibacterial activity is tested against food spoilage bacteria Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus. Escherichia coli is a food spoilage and water borne pathogen. Efficacy of the…

Activity of Cinnamomum zeylanicum essential oil and ethanolic extract against extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing bacteria

The antibacterial effects of Cinnamon essential oil and ethanolic extract against extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing  Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains were studied and it is shown that C. zeylanicum could be a potential source of new antimicrobial agents.

Comparative Analysis of In vitro Antimicrobial and Antioxidant Potential of Cinnamomum tamala Extract and their Essential Oils of Two Different Chemotypes

Results shows that essential oil of cinnamaldehyde type Cinnamon could be a potential rich source of natural antioxidants and also more effective against food borne pathogens than linalool type and could be used as natural antibacterial agents in food preservation.

Chemical Characteristics, Antimicrobial, and Cytotoxic Activities of the Essential Oil of Egyptian Cinnamomum glanduliferum Bark

Results revealed that Egyptian Cinnamomum glanduliferum bark oil exerts antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities mainly due to eucalyptol and other major compounds.

Response of Microbes Against Spice Extracts-Away to Cope with Antibiotic Resistance

The biochemical analyses revealed that the higher phenolic and flavonoid contents along with antioxidant activity in cumin, red chilies and cinnamon may be the main reason behind sturdy inhibitory effect against microbes.

Effects of Cinnamomum zeylanicum and Ocimum basilicum essential oils on the growth of Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 29213 and gene expression of enterotoxins A, C and E

The inhibitory effect of basil EO against S. aureus, both in growth and enterotoxin secretion, was higher than cinnamon (p < 0.05), and when cultured with EOs at 75% MIC, the transcriptional levels of theEnterotoxin genes and the amount of enterotoxins secreted by S.Aureus decreased significantly.

Chemical composition and antibacterial activity of essential oils against pathogens often related to cattle endometritis.

Findings indicated that essential oils are a potential agent to be used as an alternative for bovine endometritis treatment, showing the largest zone of inhibition against all bacteria evaluated.


Finding of the study concludes that Myristica fragrans seed ( jiphal) possess the antimicrobial capabilities against infections and/or diseases caused by chosen microorganisms and seems to be useful in the discovery of novel antibiotic drugs.
