Several listeriosis outbreaks have been linked with the consumption of dairy products, in particular soft cheeses, causing a problem to dairy industry and public health authorities Melo et al. Lactic acid bacteria LAB are generally recognizes as safe GRAS and producing bacteriocins with a broad spectrum of inhibition against the growth naturxl spoilage and or pathogenic bacteria. Since LAB are com- Italy Cheese monly found in meat, bacteriocins produced by these Mexico Nisin is a permitted bacteria have been explored and isolated.

Acute, subchronic, and countries to distinguish bacteriocins from antibiotics, chronic toxicity studies, as well as reproduction, since the presence of antibiotics in food is often sensitization, in vitro and cross-resistance studies prohibited.

Bacteriocins can also be used to control adventitious non-starter flora, such as non-starter lactic acid bacteria NSLAB in cheese and wine, and in this way, contribute to the quality of the final product Oumer et al. Bacteriocins and their food applications.

The high cost of bacteriocin isolation and purification also limits the commercial exploration of new bacteriocins. The combination of two enterocin producers optimized the reduction of Listeria counts in fresh cheese, decreasing this pathogen by 4 log cfu g -1 in the first 3 days of storage and by 5 log cfu g -1 on day 7. To date, eight types of nisin variants were discovered and characterized: Antonie van Leeuwenhoek 69, — Reduction of Listeria monocyto- Konings, W.

By acting as additional hurdle, the application of edible coatings and films with incorporation of bacteriocins may overcome problems associated with post-process contamination, therefore enhancing the safety and extending the shelf-life of the cheese.
