Abstract

Application of green tea extract (GTE) to food preservation was investigated. Viable counts of cucumber pickled overnight at 10°C with seasoning solution containing acetic acid, NaCl, and/or GTE were determined during cold storage at 10°C. Viable counts did not increase above the initial values for 7 days of treatment with seasoning solution containing 0.1% acetic acid, 2% NaCl, and 0.05% GTE. Use of these seasoning components alone or in combination showed no bacteriostatic effects on the pickled cucumber. Viable counts of Escherichia coli O157 : H7 did not increase when the cucumber was artificially contaminated with this bacterium and then pickled overnight with the seasoning solution containing 0.1% acetic acid. These results indicated that the addition of GTE to seasoning solution containing both acetic acid and NaCl prolongs the shelf life of overnight pickled cucumber.
