The combination of thyme oil and tea tree oil mixed together had a significantly higher total phenolic content as well as higher antioxidant scavenging activity than other single oils or oil mixtures. Lettuce inoculated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 showed significantly reduced population counts in the presence of the sanitation treatment of a combination of thyme + tea tree oil applied by dipping at 0.75% + 0.75% or 1.5% + 1.5% concentrations compared to commercial sodium hypochlorite (200 mg/L NaOCl) washing after 5 days shelf life at 10°C. These results indicate that thyme + tea tree oil dipping treatment could be used to control E. coli O157:H7 contamination in lettuce as an alternative to NaOCl.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/12640||ISSN:||0114-0671||DOI:||10.1080/01140671.2016.1269813||Rights:||© 2016 The Royal Society of New Zealand.||Type:||Article|
