Biopreservation

Biopreservation

Biopreservation

Biopreservation, is a method of food preservation using microorganisms, also called protective cultures, or their natural metabolites. These terms are generally used in opposition to the addition of so-called "chemical" preservatives conventionally used in the food industries. Biopreservation, like any other method of preservation, must make it possible to control the growth of pathogenic or spoilage flora, while preserving the organoleptic and nutritional qualities of the product during its shelf life. Biopreservation is studied in the framework of thematic 1: Understand the bacterial behaviour.

Secalim has participated to this thematic for many years and belongs to RMT FlorePro.

This recognized expertise has enabled Secalim to participate in numerous academic or industrial projects both in the field of meat products and seafood products, which enabled Secalim to participate in ANR BLacHP project on the combination between biopreservation and high hydrostatic pressure, and several European projects especially in the field of seafood, the last one being the ERANET project SAFEFISH DISH. The projects most often aim to extend the shelf-life of products or to screen protective flora, decipther the hinhibitory actions of bioprotective bacteria against undersirable bacteria involved in food poisoning or food spoilage, sometimes based on these mechanisms of cellular communication or quorum sensing. Secalim started working on this subject as part of a scientific bet, COMBACT,  whose objective was to decipher the mechanism of inhibition between a strain of Lactocccus piscium and Listeria moncytogenes. This project is now complete but has paved the way for another project, the QSAIM project, a project carried out in collaboration with UMR INRAE ​​Phan, UR BIA UMR INRAE ​​STLO. This project aims to determine whether self-inducing molecules resulting from bacterial communication or quorum sensing produced by bacteria of food origin, would make it possible to modulate the intestinal microbiota.

PhD theses supervised on this topic:

  • Several PhD thesis supervised at Secalim integrated approaches of biopreservation. One of them defended in 2019 aimed to improve the quality and safety of seafood products by hurdle technologies including biopreservation. In 2016, inhibition proterties of Lactococcus piscium against Listeria monocytogenes were studied. In 2014, a PhD thesis dealt with the quantification histaminogenic bacteria and control of histamin production by biopreservation in seafood. In 2012a and b, two PhD theses aimed to study inhibition activities of a lactic acid bacterium against Campylobacter jejuni. Former PhD theses also dealt with biopreservation in 2011, 2008 and 2005. Other theses characterised bacteriocins: 2009 and 2007a, b and 2005.
