Application of bacteriocins in vegetable food biopreservation. Bacteriocins are generally recognized as “natural” compounds able to influence the safety and quality of foods.

In the past years, a lot of works have been aimed to the detection, purification and characterisation of bacteriocins, as well as to their use in food preservation strategies. A list of review articles dealing with the application of bacteriocins to the protection of foods of animal origin is also available in literature, but it lacks for a summary on the utilization of bacteriocins in vegetable foods.

These biopreservatives applcation be used in a number of ways in food foood and this paper mainly focuses on the state-of-the-art application of bacteriocins from lactic acid bacteria LAB to promote the microbial stability of both fermented and non-fermented vegetable food products using bacteriocinogenic vegettable as starter cultures, protective cultures or co-cultures and the employment of pure bacteriocins as food additives.

In addition, applications of bacteriocins from non-LAB are also reviewed.

The scopes of future directions of research are fod. The preservation techniques used in early days relied, without any understanding of the microbiology, on the inactivation of undesirable microorganisms through drying, salting, heating, or fermentation. These methods are still used today, combining various hurdles to inhibit growth of microorganisms, but some of the classic preservation techniques are not suitable for fresh meats and RTE products Gram et al.

Recent approaches in food bio-preservation – a review. Bio-preservation is a technique of extending the shelf life of food by using natural or controlled microbiota or antimicrobials.

The fermentation products as well as beneficial bacteria are generally selected in this process to control spoilage and render pathogen inactive. The special interest organism or central organism used for this purpose is lactic acid bacteria LAB and their metabolites. They bactericins capable to exhibit antimicrobial properties and helpful in imparting unique flavour and texture to the food products. The major compounds produced by LAB are bacteriocin, organic acids and hydrogen peroxide.

Bacteriocin is peptides or proteins with antimicrobial activity. On the basis of size, structure and post-translational modification, bacteriocin is divided into four different classes. Due to non-toxic, non-immunogenic, thermo-resistance characteristics and broad bactericidal activity, LAB bacteriocins are considered good bio-preservative agents. Nisin and other bacteriocin are being used in vegetables products, dairy and meat industries.

Apart from LAB metabolites, bacteriophages and endolysins has promising role in food processing, preservation and safety. Bacteriocins and endolysins are more suitable for DNA shuffling and protein engineering to generate highly potent variants with expanded activity spectrum.

Genetically modified bacteriophages may also be helpful in bio-preservationhowever; their safety issues must be addressed properly before selection as bio-preservative agent. Food spoilage is a major issue for the food industry, leading to food waste, substantial economic losses for manufacturers and vegeetable, and a negative impact on brand names.

Among vegftable, fungal contamination can be encountered at various stages of the food chain e. Fungal development leads to food sensory defects varying from visual deterioration to noticeable odor, flavor, or texture changes but can also have negative health impacts via mycotoxin production by some molds. In order to avoid microbial spoilage and thus extend product shelf life, different treatments-including fungicides and chemical preservatives-are used.

In parallel, public authorities encourage the food industry to limit the use of these chemical compounds and develop natural methods for food preservation. This is accompanied by a strong societal demand for ‘clean label’ food products, as consumers fodo looking for more natural, less severely processed and safer products.


In this context, microbial agents corresponding to bioprotective cultures, fermentates, culture-free supernatant or purified molecules, exhibiting antifungal activities represent a growing interest as an alternative to chemical preservation. This review presents the main fungal spoilers encountered in food products, the antifungal microorganisms tested for food bioprotection, and their mechanisms of action.

A focus is made in particular on the recent in situ studies and the constraints associated with the use of antifungal microbial agents for food biopreservation.

Safety and regulation of yeasts used for biocontrol or biopreservation in the food or feed chain. Yeasts have been important components of spontaneous fermentations in food and beverage processing for millennia.

More recently, the potential of utilising antagonistic yeasts, vood. Pichia anomala and Candida spp. Although some yeast species are among the safest microorganisms known, several have been reported in opportunistic infections in humans, including P. More research is needed about the dominant pathogenicity and virulence factors in opportunistic yeasts, and whether increased utilisation ot biopreservative yeasts in general bioopreservation contribute to an increased prevalence of yeast infections.

The regulatory situation for yeasts used in post-harvest biocontrol is complex and the few products that have reached the market are mainly registered as biological pesticides.

The qualified presumption of safety QPS approach to safety assessments of microorganisms intentionally added to food or feed, recently launched by the European Food Safety Authority, can lead to more efficient evaluations of new products containing microbial species with a sufficient body of knowledge or long-term experience on their safety. With regard to authorisation of new biopreservative yeasts, we recommend that the possibility to regulate microorganisms for food biopreservation as food additives be considered.

A new bacteriocin with potential of an anti-biofilm agent and a food biopreservative. The emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria has led to exploration of alternative therapeutic agents such as ribosomally bateriocins bacterial peptides known as bacteriocins. Biofilms, which are microbial communities that cause serious chronic infections, form environments that enhance antimicrobial resistance.

Bacteria in biofilm can be upto thousand times more resistant to antibiotics than veegetable same bacteria circulating in a planktonic state. In this study, sonorensin, predicted to belong to the heterocycloanthracin subfamily of bacteriocins, was found to be effectively killing active and veetable cells of both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.

Sonorensin showed marked inhibition activity against biofilm of Staphylococcus aureus. Fluorescence and electron microscopy suggested that growth inhibition occurred because of increased membrane permeability. Low density polyethylene film coated with sonorensin was found to effectively control the growth of food spoilage bacteria like Listeria monocytogenes and S. Antimicrobial peptides as natural bio-preservative to enhance the shelf-life of food.

Antimicrobial peptides AMPs are diverse group of natural proteins present in animals, plants, insects and bacteria. These peptides are responsible for defense of host from pathogenic organisms.

Chemical, enzymatic and recombinant techniques are used for the synthesis of antimicrobial peptides.

These peptides have been found to be an alternative to the chemical preservatives. Currently, nisin is the only antimicrobial peptide, which is widely utilized in the preservation of food. Antimicrobial peptides can be used alone or in combination with other antimicrobial, essential oils and polymeric nanoparticles to enhance the shelf-life of food. This review presents an overview on different types of antimicrobial peptides, purification techniques, mode of action and application in food preservation.

The bio-preservative efficacy of a partially purified antibacterial peptide ppABP produced by Bacillus licheniformis Me1 in an economical medium developed using agro-industry waste was evaluated by direct application in milk and milk-based food products. Furthermore, the milk samples with ppABP were sensorily acceptable. Antilisterial effect was also observed in cheese and paneer samples treated with ppABP. These results clearly indicate that the ppABP of B. Packaging Considerations for Biopreservation.

Application of bacteriocins in vegetable food biopreservation.

Summary The packaging system chosen for biopreservation is critical for many reasons. An ideal biopreservation container system must provide for closure integrity, sample stability and ready access to the preserved material.

This means the system needs to be hermetically sealed to ensure integrity of the specimen is maintained throughout processing, storage and distribution; the system must remain stable over long periods of time as many biobanked samples may be stored indefinitely; and functionally closed access systems must be used applixation avoid contamination upon sample withdraw. This study reviews the suitability of a new commercially available vial configuration container utilizing blood bag style closure and access systems that can be hermetically sealed and remain stable through vgetable and biobanking procedures.


The CellSeal system was evaluated for durability, closure integrity through transportation and maintenance of functional viability of a cryopreserved mesenchymal stem cell model. Applicattion results of this initial proof-of-concept study indicated that the CellSeal vials are highly suitable for biopreservation and biobanking, and provide a suitable container system for clinical and commercial cell therapy products frozen in small volumes.

Biopreservation of food and feed by postharvest biocontrol with microorganisms. The use of microbial antagonists to control postharvest diseases of fruits, vegetables, and grains has grown in the past twenty years from a novel discovery to a full-fledged science.

Research groups worldwide are identifying new microbial isolates, evaluating their potential as postharvest bio-con Strategies to increase the hygienic and economic value of fresh fish: Biopreservation using lactic acid bacteria of marine origin. In this work we describe the development of a biopreservation strategy for fresh fish based on the use of bacteriocinogenic LAB of marine origin. For this purpose, two multibacteriocinogenic LAB strains, Lactobacillus curvatus BCS35 and Enterococcus faecium BNM58, previously isolated from fish and fish products og selected owing to their capability to inhibit the growth of several fish-spoilage and food -borne pathogenic bacteria.

The biopreservation potential and the application strategies of these two LAB strains were first tested at a laboratory scale, where several batches of fresh fish were inoculated with: Microbiological analyses, as well as sensorial analyses, were carried out during the biopreservation trials. Microbiological analyses were carried out during the storage period, showing that when Lb.

Preparation of an novel botanic biopreservative and its biopreseevation in keeping quality of peeled Penaeus vannamei. A novel botanic biopreservative was successfully prepared by the combination of the bamboo leaves extracts and ebony extracts, designated as ebony-bamboo leaves complex extracts EBLCEwhose antimicrobial activity was assessed according to an inhibition zone method against 10 common pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms.

It was found that EBLCE was more effective from all the chosen microorganisms, as compared bacteirocins potassium sorbate. Therefore, a prolonged shelf life of 16 days was obtained for EBLCE pre-treated peeled shrimps with comparison of 6 days for the control group, demonstrating EBLCE as a promising alternative for preserving food.

Micrococcus luteus, Listeria monocytogenes, and Bacillus cereus are major food -borne pathogenic and spoilage bacteria. Emergence of antibiotic resistance and consumer demand for foods containing less of chemical preservatives led to a search for natural antimicrobials.

A study aimed at characterizing, investigating the mechanism of action and regulation of biosynthesis and evaluating the biopreservative potential of pentocin from Lactobacillus pentosus CS2 was conducted. Pentocin MQ1 is a novel bacteriocin isolated from L. It has a molecular weight of Pentocin MQ1 is not plasmid-borne and its biosynthesis is regulated by a quorum sensing mechanism.

It has a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity, exhibited high chemical, thermal and pH stability but proved sensitive to proteolytic enzymes.

It is foox against M. It is quick-acting and exhibited a bactericidal mode of action against its targets. Target killing was mediated by pore formation. We report for the first time membrane permeabilization as a mechanism of action of the pentocin from the study against Gram-positive bacteria.

Pentocin MQ1 is a cell wall-associated bacteriocin. Application of pentocin MQ1 improved the microbiological quality and extended the shelf life of fresh banana. This is the first report on the biopreservation of banana using bacteriocin.

These findings place pentocin MQ1 as a potential biopreservative for further evaluation in food and medical applications. Inhibitory substances production by Lactobacillus plantarum ST16Pa cultured in hydrolyzed cheese whey supplemented with soybean flour and their antimicrobial efficiency as biopreservatives on fresh chicken meat.
