 Abstract
This study investigates antimicrobial effects of food-borne pathogens and the antioxidant activity of Torreya nucifera extract. The growth of food-borne pathogens including Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Candida albicans was inhibited by the extract. The antimicrobial activity of the extract was highest for Staphylococcus aureus among seven gram-positive bacteria and for Pseudomonas aeruginosa among six gram-negative bacteria. The extract exhibited slightly lower DPPH radical-scavenging activity, but its ABTS radical-scavenging activity was higher than that of -tocopherol. The results demonstrate the extract's antimicrobial effects on food-borne pathogens as well as potent antioxidant capacity and suggest that Torreya nucifera may be used as a natural antibacterial agent and an effective antioxidant in food.
