Application of plasma activated water for decontamination of alfalfa and mung bean seeds.

Abstract:

:Microbial contamination of fresh produce is a major public health concern, with the number of associated disease outbreaks increasing in recent years. The consumption of sprouted beans and seeds is of particular concern, as these foodstuffs are generally consumed raw, and are produced in conditions favourable for the growth of zoonotic pathogens, if present in seeds prior to sprouting or in irrigation water. This work aimed to evaluate the activity of plasma activated water (PAW) as a disinfecting agent for alfalfa (Medicago sativa) and mung bean (Vigna radiata) seeds, during seed soaking. Each seed type was inoculated with Escherichia coli O157, E. coli O104, Listeria monocytogenes or Salmonella Montevideo, and treated with PAW for different times. A combination of PAW and ultrasound treatment was also evaluated. The germination and growth rate of both seeds were assessed after PAW treatments. PAW was demonstrated to have disinfecting ability on sprouted seeds, with reductions of up to Log10 1.67 cfu/g in alfalfa seeds inoculated with E. coli O104, and a reduction of Log10 1.76 cfu/g for mung bean seeds inoculated with E. coli O157 observed. The germination and growth rate of alfalfa and mung bean sprouts were not affected by the PAW treatments. The combination of a PAW treatment and ultrasound resulted in increased antimicrobial activity, with a reduction of Log10 3.48 cfu/g of S. Montevideo in mung bean seeds observed. These results demonstrate the potential for PAW to be used for the inactivation of pathogenic microorganisms which may be present on sprouted seeds and beans, thereby providing greater assurance of produce safety.
