How do Edible Films on Food affect Microbial Growth?
  • Article 1:

Bioactive alginate coatings to control Listeria monocytogenes on cold-smoked salmon slices and fillets

  • Article 2:

Physical and antimicrobial properties of banana flour/chitosan biodegradable and self sealing films used for preserving Fresh-cut vegetables

article 1 salmon experiment
Article 1: Salmon Experiment
  • Published:

From the University of Delaware, Newark, DE

Available online 13 October 2009.

  • The experiment:
  • Five L. monocytogenes strains, PSU1, PSU9, F5069, ATCC 19115 and Scott A
  • Used to inoculate salmon pieces.
article 1 salmon experiment1
Article 1: Salmon Experiment
  • Methods:
  • Slices of smoked salmon were punched aseptically into 5.7-cm diameter round pieces (~10g) and surface-inoculated with 125 µl L. monocytogenes
  • Five antimicrobials: alginate, κ-carrageenan, pectin, starch and gelatin
  • Stored for 6 days
article 1 s almon e xperiment
Article 1: Salmon Experiment
  • Results:

Compared to the control, all antimicrobial coatings were successful.

Alginate coating was most effective

article 2 fresh cut vegetables
Article 2: Fresh Cut Vegetables
  • Published:

Asian Institute of Technology, KlongLuang, Pathumthani 12120, Thailand

Available online 15 June 2011.

  • The experiment:
  • Fresh vegetables (asparagus, baby corn, oyster mushroom and Chinese cabbage)
  • Find changes in the number of S. aureus with and without a film sealed bag
article 2 fresh cut vegetables1
Article 2: Fresh Cut Vegetables
  • Methods:
  • Cut fresh vegetables and placed in bags.
  • 3 days in the refrigerator
  • Checked for S. aureus growth
article 2 fresh cut vegetables2
Article 2: Fresh Cut Vegetables
  • Results:
  • Within 3 days- reduced levels on asparagus, baby corn, oyster mushrooms, and Chinese cabbage
  • Mushrooms were found to be same as control
  • chitosan restricts the available nutrients to the bacterial cells, also it has the limits water and gas transfer conditions

  • Those prone to sickness
applications to dietetic practice1
Applications to Dietetic Practice
  • Improve safety and quality
  • Longer shelf life (If busy or on a budget)
