|Title:||Assessment Of The Inhibitory Effect Of Free And Encapsulated Commercial Nisin (nisaplin (r)), Tested Alone And In Combination, On Listeria Monocytogenes And Bacillus Cereus In Refrigerated Milk|
|Abstract:||The antimicrobial effect of free and encapsulated (carrier agent: gum Arabic) commercial nisin (Nisaplin (R)) against Listeria monocytogenes ATCC 7644 (Lm) and Bacillus cereus IAL 55 (Bc) in refrigerated (6 +/- 1 degrees C) milk was determined throughout 21 days (d). Skim and whole milk samples containing free and encapsulated commercial nisin (0.25-1.0 mg/L, alone and combined) were contaminated, individually, with Lm or Bc (vegetative cells and spores) and the microorganisms' counts assessed every 3 d. Encapsulated commercial nisin presented characteristic traits of spray-dried products and stable antimicrobial activity under refrigeration (90 days). In both skimmed and whole milk, free and encapsulated Nisaplin (R) combined (0.5 mg/L each) exhibited the strongest antilisterial effect (d21 - d0; P < 0.05), although Lm resistant cells were observed. Free and encapsulated commercial nisin (0.25 mg/L) were highly effective against Bc spores germination and for the pathogen outgrowth inhibition (d21 - d0; P < 0.05) in both types of milk, improving the food product microbiological safety.
