Modeling and designing a Listeria monocytogenes control strategy for dry-cured ham taking advantage of water activity and storage temperature
(Meat Science, 2020-03-21)
Dry-cured ham is a shelf-stable product that can be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes due to post-processing operations, compromising the compliance of zero tolerance policies (e.g. US Listeria ...
Influence of pulsed electric fields processing on the bioaccessible and non-bioaccessible fractions of apple phenolic compounds
(Journal of Functional Foods, 2019-05-30)
Pulsed electric fields (PEF) are known to influence the chemical and microstructural factors governing apple phenolic compounds fate upon digestion. However, the effect of PEF on fruit phenolic compounds ...

(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 ...
Nutritional properties of organic and conventional beef meat at retail
(Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 2019-02-20)
