Sodium Lactate Affects Pathogens in Cooked Beef Academic Article uri icon


  • Cooked, quartered beef top rounds containing either 1, 2, 3 or 4% sodium lactate were aseptically sampled and slice sections were inoculated with Listeria monocytogenes (ATCC 43256), Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 27154), Salmonella typhimurium (ATCC 13311), Clostridium perfringens (ATCC 12924), or Escherichia coli O157:H7 (ATCC 43895). Inoculated slices were stored at 10°C for 0. 7. 14. 21 or 28 days.‘Three and 4% sodium lactate generally displayed lim‐ited proliferation of S. typhimurium, L. monocytogenes and E. coli O157:H7 when compared with control roasts (0% sodium lactate) and roasts containing 2% sodium lactate.
