Inactivation experiments with Listeria monocytogenes 10403S, an ultrasound-resistant strain, were conducted at sublethal (20, 30, and 40 degrees C) and lethal (50, 55, and 60 degrees C) temperatures in saline solution (pH 7.0), acidified saline solution (pH 3.4), and apple cider (pH 3.4) with and without application of ultrasound (20 kHz, 457 mW.ml(-l)). The survival of recoverable L. monocytogenes 10403S in apple cider was evaluated, and the effects of temperature, ultrasound, pH, and food… CONTINUE READING
