Antifungal activity of commercial sanitizers against strains of Penicillium roqueforti, Penicillium paneum, Hyphopichia burtonii, and Aspergillus pseudoglaucus: Bakery spoilage fungi.

Antifungal activity of commercial sanitizers against strains of Penicillium roqueforti, Penicillium paneum, Hyphopichia burtonii, and Aspergillus pseudoglaucus: Bakery spoilage fungi. Food Microbiol. 2019 Oct;83:59-63 Authors: Bernardi AO, Stefanello A, Lemos JG, Garcia MV, Copetti MV Abstract Information on the sensitivity of spoilage fungi of bakery products to sanitizing agents is scarce in the literature. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the antifungal activity of different classes of commercial sanitizers, which have permitted use in the food industry, on the main fungi involved in spoiling bakery products. The tests were carried out according to the protocol for testing the antifungal effect of chemical sanitizers of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), with adaptations. Different strains of six isolated fungal species responsible for spoiling bakery products (Penicillium roqueforti, Penicillium paneum, Hyphopichia burtonii, and Aspergillus pseudoglaucus) were tested against five sanitizers at three concentrations: benzalkonium chloride (0.3%, 2.5%, 5%), biguanide (2%, 3.5%, 5%), peracetic acid (0.15%, 1.5%, 3%), quaternary ammonium (0.3%, 2.5%, 5%), and sodium hypochlorite (0.01%, 0.1%, 0.2%). Peracetic acid was the most effective sanitizes considering the genera, species, and concentrations evaluated, generally being capable of reductions between 2 and 4 logs of initial control tested. Biguanide should not be the compound ...

Wei-Zhong Liu Three new γ-hydroxyl butenolides (1–3), a pair of new enantiomeric spiro-butenolides (4a and 4b), a pair of enantiomeric cyclopentenones (5a new and 5b new natural), and six known compounds (6–11), were isolated from Aspergillus sclerotiorum. Their structures were established by spectroscopic data and electronic circular dichroism (ECD) spectra. Two pairs of enantiomers [(+)/(–)-6c and (+)/(–)-6d] obtained from the reaction of 6 with acetyl chloride (AcCl) confirmed that 6 was a mixture of two pairs of enantiomers. In addition, the X-ray data confirmed tha...

This leads to protein degradation in microbial cells, membrane degradation, and eventual cell death. Survival of spoilage organisms, especially spore-formers, has not been closely considered in regard to the effect of water activity (aw). The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of pH and aw on HPP apple juice to prevent ...

CONCLUSIONS: Surgery is needed in some patients with refractory CPA. We consider that SAIA and CCPA patients may benefit from perioperative antifungal therapy. However, due to the limited number of patients in this study, more evidence is needed to draw a conclusion about this issue. PMID: 31312378 [PubMed]
