Abstract: In this study, the antibacterial activities of a bovine Lactoferrin pepsin hydrolysate (LFH) and a synthetic peptide derived from bovine lactoferricin (LfcinB1731) have been evaluated against Oenococcus oeni and three additional lactic acid bacteria (LAB) known to cause spoilage during winemaking processes. Inhibition of bacterial growth was demonstrated in vitro in synthetic broth media (MRS) for both LFH and LfcinB1731. The bactericidal activity of the synthetic peptide was also assayed and found to vary depending on the bacterial species and the matrix in which exposure to peptide occurred (either MRS broth or white must). Specificity of LfcinB1731 for Lactobacillus brevis, Pediococcus damnosus, and O. oeni was demonstrated in must fermentation experiments in which these three LAB co-existed with the winemaking Saccharomyces cerevisiae T73 in the presence of the peptide. Finally, fermentation experiments also showed that LfcinB1731 at inhibitory concentrations did not alter either fermentation kinetics or specific enological parameters.

Abstract: AIMS: To evaluate the antimicrobial activity in peptone yeast extract glucose (PYG) broth and ultra-high temperature (UHT) milk of bovine lactoferrin hydrolysate (LFH) with pepsin against the foodborne pathogens Salmonella Stanley, Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus. METHODS AND RESULTS: The LFH was suspended in PYG and the minimum inhibitory concentration for each pathogen determined. The LFH was also suspended in UHT milk adjusted to pH 4 or 7, samples incubated at 4 or 35 degrees C and the change in bacterial cell population determined. Experiments in UHT milk were conducted using L. monocytogenes and E. coli O157:H7. At pH 4 LFH reduced the population of E. coli O157:H7 and L. monocytogenes by approx. 2 log; however, only E. coli O157:H7 was inhibited in samples adjusted to pH 7. The addition of EDTA (10 mg ml(-1)) to UHT milk supplemented with LFH did not markedly influence the growth of E. coli O157:H7 or L. monocytogenes. CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that, under low pH and refrigeration conditions, LFH can limit the growth or reduce the population of pathogenic bacteria in a dairy product. SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY: Natural preservatives that are active against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria are desirable to the food industry. This study demonstrates that LFH is effective in a complex food system. Moreover, the LFH used was not purified, making its use by industry more attractive.
