New publication: Antibacterial activity of different organic honeys against food pathogenic bacterium Clostridium perfringens

Tehostekuva

Clostridium perfringens is one of the most common causes of food poisonings and is known to cause human and animal diseases. It has been reported that C. perfringens has developed resistance to antibiotics. Antimicrobial properties of honey have been studied in order to confirm its action as a potential antimicrobial agent and also as a potential food preservative through inactivation, growth delay or growth prevention of food pathogenic microorganisms.
