Table 5 Effect of fermencin SA715 on surface bacterial count and shelf life of banana

From: Characterization, yield optimization, scale up and biopreservative potential of fermencin SA715, a novel bacteriocin from Lactobacillus fermentum GA715 of goat milk origin

Bacteriocin Bacterial count (CFU/ml) after 5 days of storage Shelf-life (days)

  1. Fermencin SA715 was topically applied on fresh bananas and subsequently stored at different conditions. Total bacterial count, LAB count, morphological changes and shelf life were measured
  2. F, fermencin SA715; C, negative control; A, ambient condition; R, refrigeration condition
