AIMS To study the effectiveness of a combination of cell-adsorbed bacteriocin (CAB; a suspension of producer cells on which maximum bacteriocin has been immobilized by pH adjustments) of a Lactobacillus curvatus strain with oregano or savory essential oil to control Listeria monocytogenes in pork meat at 4 degrees C. METHODS AND RESULTS The antimicrobial activity of the CAB and six different essential oils was tested by the well diffusion assay against L. monocytogenes M, Escherichia coli… CONTINUE READING
