The objective of this study was to use transmission electron microscopy to investigate the morphological changes that occurred in Listeria monocytogenes cells treated with grape seed extract (GSE), green tea extract (GTE), nisin, and combinations of nisin with either GSE or GTE. The test solutions were prepared with (i) 1% GSE, 1% GTE, 6,400 IU of nisin, and the combination of these dilutions with nisin or with (ii) the pure major phenolic constituents of GSE (0.02% epicatechin plus 0.02… CONTINUE READING
