Development and validation of a surrogate strain cocktail to evaluate bactericidal effects of pressure on verotoxigenic Escherichia coliDownload
Many strains of verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) are highly resistant to pressure. To facilitate future studies to improve the elimination of VTEC by pressure processing of food, this study developed and validated a cocktail of non-pathogenic strains of E. coli with equal or higher...
The pressure resistance of Shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) depends on food matrix. This study compared the resistance of two five-strain E. coli cocktails, as well as the pressure resistant strain E. coli AW1.7, to hydrostatic pressure application in bruschetta, tzatziki, yoghurt...
Escherichia coli AW1.7 is a heat resistant food isolate and the occurrence of pathogenic strains with comparable heat resistance may pose a risk to food safety. To identify the genetic determinants of heat resistance, 29 strains of E. coli that differed in their of heat resistance were analyzed...
Verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) pose a risk for foodborne illness that can lead to death. Thermal food preservation to inactivate VTEC also alters food quality. High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) processing has been adopted by the food industry as an alternative to thermal preservation....
