Abstract

The bacteriocin produced by Pediococcus acidilactici PAC 1.0, previously designated PA-1 bacteriocin, was found to be inhibitory and bactericidal for Listeria monocytogenes. A dried powder prepared from PAC 1.0 culture supernatant fortified with 10% milk powder was found to contain bacteriocin activity. An MIC against L. monocytogenes and lytic effects in broth cultures were determined. Inhibition by PA-1 powder occurred over the pH range 5.5 to 7.0 and at both 4 and 32 degrees C. In addition, inhibition of L. monocytogenes was demonstrated in several food systems including dressed cottage cheese, half-and-half cream, and cheese sauce.
