The addition of sachets or pads containing volatile antimicrobial agents into packages has been the most successful commercial application of antimicrobials to packaging. In this study, the effect of oregano (Origanum onites) essential oil on the extension of shelf life of overwrap packed fresh chicken drumsticks was investigated. Meat exudate absorbent pads were sprayed with 5 mL of oregano essential oil at a concentration of 1.5% in distillate water. Sampling was carried out at 0, 3, 5, and 7 d of the refrigerated storage. Total viable count, psychrotrophs, pseudomonads, members of the family Enterobacteriaceae, yeasts, and lactic acid bacteria were enumerated. Physicochemical analysis and sensorial evaluation were also conducted. The shelf life of fresh chicken drumsticks was approximately 3 d. Oregano essential oil extended product shelf life by approximately 2 d. Thus, incorporation of essential oils to absorbent pads may have supplementary applications in food packaging.

The aim of this study was to identify antimicrobial properties of essential oils in vapour phase. In vitro antibacterial activity against five foodborne bacteria (Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella enteritidis, Staphylococcus aureus) was evaluated by disc volatilization method. The results were expressed as minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) in μl/cm3 of air. Thirteen of the 27 essential oils were active at least against one bacterial strain in the ...

Abstract The antimicrobial effect of thyme essential oil (EO) at 0.3%, 0.6%, or 0.9%, nisin at 500 or 1000 IU/g, and their combination against Listeria monocytogenes was examined in both tryptic soy broth (TSB) and minced beef meat. Thyme EO at 0.3% possessed a weak antibacterial activity against the pathogen in TSB, whereas at 0.9% showed unacceptable organoleptic properties in minced meat. Thus, only the level of 0.6% of EO was further examined against the pathogen in minced meat. Treatment of...

Abstract Traditional Iranian barbecued chicken (TIBC) consists of cubed chicken breast, lemon juice, onion, saffron, salt, red pepper, vegetable oil and various spices such as oregano and nutmeg with pH value about 5.5. As this product is sometimes consumed under-cooked, there is growing concern that it may pose health hazards to consumers related to pathogenic bacteria such as Escherichia coli O157:H7. We studied the influence of storage temperature and essential oils (EOs) of oregano and nutme...

Abstract The combined effect of oregano essential oil (0.1% and 1% w/w) and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) (30% CO 2 /70% N 2 and 70% CO 2 /30% N 2 ) on shelf-life extension of fresh chicken meat stored at 4 °C was investigated. The parameters that were monitored were: microbiological (TVC, Pseudomonas spp., lactic acid bacteria (LAB), yeasts, Brochothrix thermosphacta and Enterobacteriaceae ), physico-chemical (pH, TBA, color) and sensory (odor and taste) attributes. Microbial populations ...

Abstract The effects of 0.5% cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC), 0.12% acidified sodium chlorite (ASC) and a mix of equal volume of the two (0.25% CPC-0.06% ASC) on Escherichia coli O157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus were evaluated on inoculated sliced roast beef. The antimicrobial agents were, respectively, sprayed on the beef surfaces and tray absorbent pads, and samples were stored at 4 °C for 10 days (d). At 0 d, L. monocytogenes and S. aureus were reduced to undetectable ...

Abstract The use of edible films to release antimicrobial constituents in food packaging is a form of active packaging. Antimicrobial properties of spice extracts are well known, however their application to edible films is limited. In this study, antimicrobial properties of whey protein isolate (WPI) films containing 1.0–4.0% (wt/vol) ratios of oregano, rosemary and garlic essential oils were tested against Escherichia coli O157:H7 (ATCC 35218), Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 43300), Salmonella en...

Abstract In vitro studies have demonstrated antibacterial activity of essential oils (EOs) against Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Shigella dysenteria, Bacillus cereus and Staphylococcus aureus at levels between 0.2 and 10 μl ml−1. Gram-negative organisms are slightly less susceptible than gram-positive bacteria. A number of EO components has been identified as effective antibacterials, e.g. carvacrol, thymol, eugenol, perillaldehyde, cinnamaldehyde and ...

Chitosan-based films incorporated with lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) essential oil (LEO) were developed and their properties as an active food packaging were investigated. The thickness and percentage elongation at break (EAB) of the films increased significantly (p < 0.05) with the higher concentrations of LEO. At 9% LEO (wt/wt chitosan), the film experienced a 101% improvement in percentage EAB compared to control chitosan films. On the other hand, the moisture content, solubility and tensi...

Abstract Coated packaging film with nano-emulsified polylactic acid (PLA) was prepared as an extended shelf life package for chicken fillet. PLA was prepared by direct polycondensation to be prepared after that nanoparticles by solvent displacement as potential coating for packaging systems. The characterizations of PLA were done by thermo-gravimetric measurement size exclusion chromatography and differential scanning calorimetry. Additionally, the particle size distribution was measured by dyna...

Food packaging is increasingly becoming important in enhancing the microbiological safety and quality of a food product. Poultry meat can be contaminated with a variety of spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms. The common packaging systems used for poultry meat and products include tray and overwrap, modified atmosphere packaging, and vacuum packaging. In addition, various active packaging technologies such as antimicrobial packaging, oxygen scavengers, and carbon dioxide emitters are introduce...

Abstract Fresh chicken is a potential source of human infection due to its high microbial load, making the issues regarding its microbiological safety, especially the control of Campylobacter spp., of paramount relevance. Pinosylvin has recently proved effective against this major food pathogen. In this work, we evaluated the efficacy of absorbent pads containing pinosylvin (PS) inclusion complexes (ICs) for the control of fresh chicken meat microbial contamination, focusing on its anti- Campylo...

Food spoilage and poisoning are two main problems in food industry area that are caused by contamination of bacteria. The process of contamination of food by bacteria usually occurs in food processing, packaging, and distribution handling. In spite of food preservation techniques such as drying, freezing, heating, fermentation, and salting that can extend the shelf life, recontamination still may occur in the food products. Process packaging as the final process in food production system is key ...

Consumer demand for fresh-like, sustainable, minimally processed, and clean label food products has been increasing significantly. However, removing chemical preservative and additives from food products significantly reduces their shelf life. To address this challenge, antimicrobial active packaging systems which contain materials within or on the packaging that actively inhibit food spoilage microorganisms can be used to extend the shelf life of food products. This book chapter aims to review ...
