Influence of β-lactoglobulin and β-casein on Listeria innocua inactivation by pulsed light.

The effect of β-lactoglobulin and β-casein on the pulsed light (PL) inactivation of Listeria innocua was evaluated. For low protein concentrations (β-lactoglobulin and β-casein up to 10 mg/mL), the lowest fluences applied (0.2 J/cm(2)) induced more than 7 Log reductions in cell counts. However, higher fluences were needed to induce similar reduction in L… CONTINUE READING
