Growth and anti-listerial activity of a nisin Z producer in a pork lean meat broth fermentation system

Listeria monocytogenes is widely distributed in nature and has been isolated from numerous sources such as meat and fermented meat products. This pathogenic microorganism can resist conditions of low pH, low water activity (Aw), high salt (NaCl) concentrations and the presence of sodium nitrite, being able to survive the commercial sausage manufacturing process. The aim of this work was to evaluate the antilisterial...
