The inhibitory effect of calcinated calcium on the growth of Escherichia coli O157:H7 during fresh radish (Raphanus sativus L.) sprout production was studied. It was revealed that the addition of 0.4% (wt/vol) calcinated calcium into radish sprouting medium which was artificially contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 (3.0 to 3.2 log CFU/ml) completely inhibited the growth or inactivated the microorganism. When radish seed extract was used instead of radish sprout production, the same extent of… CONTINUE READING
