Abstract or Summary
  • The storage life at 43°F of ground dover sole fillets (Microstomas pacificus) was determined microbiologically after treatment with ionizing radiation and antimicrobial agents. Sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate and the sodium salts of the methyl and propyl esters of parahydroxybenzoic acid (MPB and PPB) all approximately doubled the refrigerated storage life of irradiated dover sole. The dose levels employed were 0.1, 0.3, and 0.5 Mrad. The concentration of the agents used in each case was 0.1 percent. The normal spoilage of dover sole is caused predominately by the outgrowth of pseudomonads. After irradiation, however, the spoilage is due to the outgrowth of Achromobacter and certain Gram positive organisms. The spoilage pattern was not changed by the antimicrobial agents tested except at the higher dose level (0.5 Mrad), at which the spoilage was caused by yeasts. The additives had no effect on the growth rate of the microorganisms of dover sole. They merely prolonged the length of microbial dormancy that followed radiation exposure. Possible mechanisms involved in the combined effect of antimicrobial agents and irradiation are discussed.
