Effects of high pressure on survival and metabolic activity of Lactobacillus plantarum TMW1.460.

The application of high pressure (HP) for food preservation requires insight into mechanisms of HP-mediated cell injury and death. The HP inactivation in model beer of Lactobacillus plantarum TMW1.460, a beer-spoiling organism, was investigated at pressures ranging from 200 to 600 MPa. Surviving cells were characterized by determination of (i) cell… CONTINUE READING
