Figure 1

Survival curves of Listeria monocytogenes CECT 4031 obtained in TSBYE and recovered in TSAYE (continuous lines) or TSAYE-SC (dashed lines). (a) In presence of 0.3 mM thymol (●) and at 55°C (◆) and at 55°C and in presence of 0.3 mM thymol (▲). (b) In presence of 0.3 mM thymol + 0.3 mM carvacrol (●) and at 55°C (◆) and at 55°C and in presence of 0.3 mM thymol + 0.3 mM carvacrol (▲). Horizontal dotted lines show the counting technique detection limit.
