BACKGROUND: Consumers perceive that organic meat has superior nutritional properties compared to conventional meat,although the available evidence from commercial samples is very scarce. The present study compared the ...
Modelling the interaction of the sakacin-producing Lactobacillus sakei CTC494 and Listeria monocytogenes in filleted gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata) under modified atmosphere packaging at isothermal and non-isothermal conditions
(International Journal of Food Microbiology, 2019-03-06)
The objective of this work was to quantitatively evaluate the effect of Lactobacillus sakei CTC494 (sakacin-producing bioprotective strain) against Listeria monocytogenes in fish juice and to apply and validate three ...
Assessment of the bioprotective potential of lactic acid bacteria against Listeria monocytogenes on vacuum-packed cold-smoked salmon stored at 8 °C
(Food Microbiology, 2019-04-26)
Smoked salmon is a highly appreciated delicatessen product. Nevertheless, this ready-to-eat (RTE) product is considered at risk for Listeria monocytogenes, due to both the prevalence and growth potential of this bacteria ...
Influence of pulsed electric fields processing on the bioaccessible and non-bioaccessible fractions of apple phenolic compounds
