Semi purified bacteriocin of Leuconostoc mesenteroides to be used in fermented sausages

As a result of project, semi-purified bacteriocins by Leuconostoc mesenteroides (E131) and Lactobacillus sakei (I154) were produced.

According to experimental results, it is concluded that the bacteriocin of Leuconoctoc mesenteroides (E131) shows a higher anti-listerial activity than that of Lactobacillus sakei (I 154).

The partners would like to undertake further industrial research and in the same time promote the result in order to find other interested industries. The partners believe that they could act as consultants to the potential new industrial partners so that new brand names of sausages using the gained know how would be produced in the future.
