Essential Oils : Its Components and Its Application in Food Preservatives

  title={Essential Oils : Its Components and Its Application in Food Preservatives},
  author={M. Konyak},
With increasing globalization means high demand on import and export of goods including food materials. This makes it all the more necessary to take extreme care of food and its products. Used of chemicals and toxic compound to preserve food product has leads to an increase in antibiotics resistanceof some pathogen which has cause a major concern. Therefore, recent development is mainly focusing on the use of nontoxic antimicrobial compound such as Essentail oils as natural preservation for… Expand

Antimicrobial herb and spice compounds in food.
This paper aims to review recent in-food applications of EOs and plant-origin natural antimicrobials and recent techniques for screening such compounds. Expand
Enzymatic inhibition by allyl isothiocyanate and factors affecting its antimicrobial action against Escherichia coli O157:H7.
It is postulated that AIT is a more effective antimicrobial at low pH values and its degradation reduces this activity; decomposition products in water might not participate in the antimicrobial action of AIT; and AIT seems to have a multi-targeted mechanism of action, perhaps inhibiting several metabolic pathways and damaging cellular structures.

Composition and Antimicrobial Activities of Lippia multiflora Moldenke, Mentha x piperita L. and Ocimum basilicum L. Essential Oils and Their Major Monoterpene Alcohols Alone and in Combination
This study suggests that the selection of certain combinations of EOs could help to reduce the amount of essential oils and consequently reduce any adverse sensory impact in food. Expand
Eugenol a valuable compound for in vitro experimental research and worthwhile for further in vivo investigation
Eugenol and isoeugenol are responsible for several pharmacological activities exhibited by nutmeg preparations. We studied their antimicrobial and antiaggregation activity in vitro and theirExpand

Biosynthesis of Plant Volatiles: Nature's Diversity and Ingenuity
Plant volatiles are lipophilic molecules with high vapor pressure that serve various ecological roles that are synthesized by enzymes that produce multiple products from a single substrate or act on multiple substrates. Expand
Phenylpropanoid biosynthesis.
This review aims to give an update on the various facets of the general phenylpropanoid pathway, which is not only restricted to common lignin or flavonoid biosynthesis, but feeds into a variety of other aromatic metabolites like coumarins, phenolic volatiles, or hydrolyzable tannins. Expand
