Scholarcy highlights

  • Mixtures of cinnamon and clove oils were tested for inhibitory activity against important spoilage microorganism of intermediate moisture foods
  • Four fungal species, four yeasts species, and two bacteria species inoculated separately on agar plates were sealed in a barrier pouch and exposed to essential oil volatiles under a modified at mosphere of low O2 and high CO2, with the balance being N2
  • Higher ratios of cinnamon oil/clove oil were more effective for inhibiting the growth of A. flavus
