ABSTRACT


Divercin preparations were obtained in the process of freeze and spray drying where high-saccharified maltodextrin was used as a drying carrier. It was found that spray drying of a liquid divercin extract was possible when maltodextrin at a concentration of at least 10% was applied while a liquid divercin extract could be freeze-dried without the addition of maltodextrin. However, when the concentration of maltodextrin in the dried liquid extracts was lower than 10%, freeze-dried divercin preparations contained more than 10% of water and could be microbiologically unstable and susceptible to non-enzymatic transformations. It was also found that freeze drying and spray drying processes did not decrease divercin activity.

Key words: bacteriocins, divercin, Listeria, spray drying, freeze drying.
