|Abstract: ||This study was developed in order to evaluate two alternatives for the control of Listeria monocy-
togenes in raw bovine meat pieces, both based on the use of Thymus vulgaris and Rosmarinus
officinalis essential oils (EOs). The antilisterial activity of different concentrations of the EOs was
tested in vitro using agar dilution and disk volatilization techniques. In addition, L. monocytogenes
was inoculated in meat pieces, which were submerged in edible gelatin coatings containing 2% (v/v)
EOs or submitted to the vapor of EOs (0.74 mL.cm -3 ). L. monocytogenes was quantified after one, 48
and 96 hours of storage (7 °C). In the in vitro tests, the EO of T. vulgaris presented higher activity.
The two options used (edible gelatin coating and vapor activity), in spite of exercising effects with
differentiated behaviors, presented antibacterial activity against L. monocytogenes inoculated in raw
bovine meat (p < 0.05). Greatest antibacterial activity were obtained in the experiment that used ed-
ible coatings containing EOs, at 48 hours of storage reductions in bacterial counts between 1.09 and
1.25 Log CFU.g -1 were obtained. In the vapor effect experiment, the EO of T. vulgaris caused the
highest reduction in the population of bacteria inoculated in raw bovine meat (p < 0.05), 0.40 Log
CFU.g -1 at 96 hours of storage. This study supplied important information regarding new and promis-
ing natural alternatives, based on the concept of active packaging, for the control of L. monocy-
togenes in the meat industry.|
