2023 article

CO2-mediated bloater defect can be induced by the uncontrolled growth of Enterobacteriaceae in cucumber fermentation

Zhai, Y., Pagan-Medina, C. G., & Perez-Diaz, I. M. (2023, July 19). FOOD SCIENCE & NUTRITION.

By: Y. Zhai n, C. Pagan-Medina* & I. Perez-Diaz*

author keywords: bloater defect; cucumber fermentation; Enterobacter
TL;DR: It is concluded that the metabolic activity of the Enterobacteriaceae indigenous to cucumber can produce sufficient CO2 in cucumber fermentations to induce bloater defect. (via Semantic Scholar)

Identification of potential causative agents of the CO2-mediated bloater defect in low salt cucumber fermentation


By: Y. Zhai n & I. Perez-Diaz n

author keywords: Bloater defect; Carbon dioxide production; Enterobacteriaceae; Leuconostocaceae; Low salt cucumber fermentation
