Volatile Compounds on Sterile Pork Loin Tissue Inoculated with Lactobacillus plantarum and Lactobacillus fermentum Academic Article uri icon


  • Sterile pork loin tissue was inoculated with Lactobacillus plantarum 1 and Lactobacillus fermentum, placed in sterile sample bottles, purged with CO2, and stored for up to 24 days at 3°C. L. plantarum grew more rapidly than L. fermentum under these conditions. Among the 15 compounds identified in the headspace of sterile and inoculated pork loin tissue were acetone, sulfur dioxide, dichloroethane, trichloromethane, benzene and toluene. Profiles of volatile compounds were similar for inoculated and sterile pork loin tissue. Copyright © 1992, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
