    Abstract

    The effect of single and mixed strain mesophilic and thermophilic lactic starter cultures of the genera Lactococcus, Lactobacillus and Streptococcus on the growth and survival of Listeria monocytogenes both in raw and pasteurised milk is investigated. Changes in the population of Listeria in milk were determined for different combinations of starter culture and incubation temperature. Raw milk samples were inoculated with several starter culture and pathogen combinations in known concentrations of 1 x 108 and 1 x 104 respectively, and incubated at 4°C, 25°C and 37°C. Controls were incubated at the same temperatures, and all experiments were performed in duplicate. Preliminary results will be presented at the seminar.
