A Microorganism Invented To Eliminate Pathogen

A new microorganism with a demonstrated bio-preservative activity. Useful for preserving fruits, specially the minimally processed. Could kill spoilage microorganisms and human pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli 0157:H7 as tested on fresh cut fruits. Effective within the temperature range of 5-20°C, but won’t grow at 37°C. It never thrive in gastric juice and no recorded harmful effects to humans. Published at innoget.com and perhaps a study of University of Lleida in Spain.

I got no further information since “read more” access needs special permission. Even the common or special name was not mentioned. A patented discovery maybe.

In food processing, microorganisms are famous for two things. The first is food spoilage and the second is as processing aid. Most of it need to be eliminated, they are altering food physical and chemical makeup, thus, not suitable and most of the time harmful in the end. Some are taken care of as they are useful for making important products such as wine, cheese, soy sauce, yogurt, kimchi and vinegar.

Microorganism intended for killing other microorganisms is new, but was not really a new thing when we think about it deeper. Microscopic creatures for food processing purposes are capable of indirectly killing and preventing unwanted counterparts. Popular examples are:

Acetobacter aceti – vinegar
Saccharomyces spp – ethanol
lactic acid producing bacteria
Peniccilin producing fungi

  • what you are looking for is bacteriophages commonly refered to as phages the Russians developed it in world war 2 for their troops it does destroy e coli, dysentery, salmonella and other pathogens

    It is true they are trying to keep this secret until they can figure how to make a profit from it

    I have made a study of Phages

  • Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera.
    Outstanding Blog!

  • Slice the grilled chicken in strips or chunks and then arrange them on top of the spinach
    salad. Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 1
    hour before serving. If not, definitely try it with any leftover
    grilled chicken you may have waiting to be used up in your refrigerator.

  • Hi I am so happy I found your web site, I really found
    you by accident, while I was browsing on Askjeeve for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a
    remarkable post and a all round entertaining blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read through it all at the moment but I have saved it and also added in your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the awesome work.

  • Marvin good day! Your captioned title microorganism invented to eliminate pathogen” and mentioned 4 good microbes and familiar with them for their individual purposes. Common is in vinegar which we always know and not everybody, the common tao knows about lactic acid bacteria. LAB is actually what we commonly know of “Yakult” or the “Chamito”. We in the natural farming world actually make lactic acid bacteria. LAB is so easy to make has many uses for humans, animals, plants and household.
    Microbes actually is not invented it is there since the world’s creation. I would rather prefer to call it rediscovered or discovered. If you want i will teach you how to make lactic acid bacteria.
    Thanks Marvin. Cheers!
    Dennis

    • lactic acid bacteria, that would be great! please tell me about it when you have time.
