Effect of phenolic antioxidants on microbial growth.

Antioxidants belong to a class of compounds used to retard oxidation of chemicals in foods. These compounds, such as BHA, BHT, TBHQ, PG, etc. are approved to be used in foods by government agencies. In the past 10 years considerable interest has been directed to the antimicrobial properties of these compounds due to the observations by various scientists that many of these compounds can suppress the growth of viruses, protozoa, bacteria, yeast, and molds and their subsequent production of toxic materials in foods. Thus, the dual purpose usage of these compounds (i.e., antioxidation and antimicrobial) has been the subject of many research papers. This review is designed to summarize major publications on this subject as well as present some detailed studies on the effect of major antioxidants on bacteria and mold generated in the laboratory of the author in recent years.[1]
