Antimicrobial Efficacy Of Edible Soy Protein Isolate Films And Coatings Incorporated With Hop Ethanol Extract And The Influence On Shelf-Life And Sensory Attributes Of Bologna, Jamie R. G. Skudlarek

Theses and Dissertations--Animal and Food Sciences

There is demand for improved security of refrigerated ready-to-eat meats. Antimicrobial edible films and coatings could function as an added barrier against post-processing contamination. Hops and hop extracts are known for their antimicrobial efficacy which is attributed to key antimicrobial components including humulones, lupulones, xanthohumol and various terpenoids. Yet, hop ethanol extract has not been studied as an antimicrobial to incorporate into edible protein films and/or coatings. The overall objective of this research was to evaluate hop ethanol extract as an antimicrobial agent incorporated into edible soy protein isolate (SPI) films and coatings, and the influence on the shelf-life ...
