Effect of Grapefruit Seed Extract and Ascorbic Acid on the Spoilage Microorganisms and Keeping Quality of Soybean Sprouts

Grapefruit Seed Extract와 Ascorbic Acid의 혼합 처리가 콩나물 변패 미생물과 저장 품질에 미치는 영향

  • Published : 1998.12.01


The antimicrobial effect of mixed solutions of grapefruit seed extract(250ppm) and ascorbic acid(1%) on the spoilage microorganisms such as Staphylococcus epidermis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas syringae, Candida albicans and Corynebacterium xerosis isolated from the spoiled soybean sprouts were investigated. Cell wall and membrane were partially destroyed and the contents of the destroyed cell were exuded after treatment. Packages with 30 m cast polypropylene(CPP), 16 m polyolefin(RD 106) and 10 m high density polyethylene(HDPE) were applied for soybean sprouts dipped in mixed solutions respectively. Oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration inside packages were dependent on the kind of films during storage at 5oC. The antimicrobial activity of mixed solutions was maintained for 5 days at CPP package. Package with HDPE showed a severe browning than the others after 5 days. Ascorbic acid content of mixed solution treatment was higher than that of control for each package.
