AGF: Kruisbesmetting van karton en kunststof verpakkingen

30 januari 2018

Researchers at the University of Bologna in Italy studied the interaction of corrugated and plastic materials with pathogenic and spoiling microorganisms frequently associated with fresh produce. The results obtained showed that cardboard materials, if correctly stored, reduced the potential of packaging to cross-contaminate food due to a faster viability loss by spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms compared to the plastic ones.
The SEM microphotographs indicate that the reduction of superficial contamination on cardboard was due to the entrapping of the microbial cells within the fibers and the pores of this material. An article about the research is published in Frontiers in Microbiology.
