Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We have investigated the control of halophilic histamine-producing bacteria, Photobacterium phosphoerum and Photobacterium damselae by using vapor of essential oils and other agents. Three of fourteen essential oils showed high antibacterial activity against histamine-producing bacteria. Among food additives and detergents, ten of twenty-one food additives and seven of nine detergents also showed antibacterial activity. Low concentrations of sodium chloride suppressed the growth of both species. We examined the resistance of these bacteria to dryness on food contact surfaces. After 0.5 hours, no viable cells were detected. So, the bacteria were sensitive to dry conditions. These results should contribute to development of the techniques to prevent histamine food poisoning.
