Several lactic acid bacteria (LAB) of the Lactococcus, Lactobacillus,
Leuconostoc and Pediococcus genera were screened for inhibition of
food-borne pathogens and spoilage microorganisms in raw milk and
dairy products. Listeria monocytogenes was killed by Lactococcus
lactis subsp. lactis and Pediococcus pentosaceus due to their
production of bacteriocin-type inhibitors. Staphylococcus aureus...

Antimicrobial resistant Enterobacteriaceae might be introduced into dairy cows through the consumption of feeds and the microbes may eventually enter the human food supply. Thirty-two farms were selected at random from 43 commodity feeding dairy farms. Of the 32 farms selected, 12 farms agreed to participate in the study. In...
Acetaldehyde is known to be responsible for the green
or yogurt-like flavor defect of lactic cultures. This study was undertaken
to extend the knowledge of acetaldehyde production and utilization
by microorganisms normally found in mixed-strain butter cultures.
It is anticipated that the resulting information will contribute
to a more thorough...
The development of synthetic culture flavors for use in dairy
products such as sour cream, cottage cheese, butter, and buttermilk
has created the need for a rapid quantitative analysis for the
synthetic flavor concentrates. An internal standard gas chromatographic
method has been developed which is capable of +10% accuracy
