Three Alicyclobacillus Type Strains Isolated from Fruit Juices Now Available from NCIMB
Three type strains of the genus Alicyclobacillus have recently been added to the National Collection of Industrial, Food and Marine Bacteria and are now available to purchase. Strains of this genus are a cause of microbial spoilage in fruit juices, and all three of the newly added strains are acid and heat tolerant, gram positive, spore forming rods. They were isolated from fruit juices by Cornell Agritech, and deposited at NCIMB by Cornell University.
NCIMB 15264 Alicyclobacillus fructus was isolated from mixed fruit juice concentrate, NCIMB 15265 Alicyclobacillus sucus was isolated from apple juice and NCIMB 15266 Alicyclobacillus mali was isolated from pear juice.
It has been reported that the heat tolerance of Alicyclobacillus strains means that they can survive the pasteurisation regimes typically used in fruit juice manufacture.
