dc.description.abstractAntimicrobial potential of six essential oils (EOs) (basil, ginger, hyssop, caraway, juniper, and sage) against three food-borne bacterial pathogens, commonly found as meat product contaminants (Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica and Listeria monocytogenes), using disc diffusion and broth microdilution methods, was evaluated. The EOs composition was determined by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC MS) technique. Dominant compounds in analyzed EOs were: estragole)in basil EO), cis-pinocamphone (in hyssop EO), alpha-pinene (in juniper EO), a-thujone (in sage EO), carvone (in caraway EO) and curcumene (in ginger EO). Basil EO inhibited growth of all tested bacteria (disc diffusion method). Tested concentrations of ginger EO lacked bactericidal activity. Only basil EO showed inhibitory effect on L. monocytogenes growth. Compared to all tested EOs, caraway EO had the highest antibacterial activity on E. coli and S. enterica. Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of basil and sage EOs was 56.8 mu l/mL for all tested bacteria. Hyssop, caraway, and juniper EOs were inhibitory at concentration of 113.6 mu l/mL on all tested bacterial species. MIC of ginger EO was 113.6 mu L/mL for E. coli and L. monocytogenes and 227.3 mu L/mL for S. enterica. Minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) of basil and sage EOs was 113.6 mu l/mL for all investigated bacteria. MBC of hyssop, caraway, and juniper EOs was 227.3 mu l/mL for all investigation bacteria. MBC of ginger EO was 227.3 mu L/mL for E. coli and L. monocytogenes and 454.5 mu L/mL for S. enterica. Tested EOs have a great potential as natural antibacterial preservative in food.en
