Spicy Inhibitors Kit (with voucher)

$109.80
(in stock)

Description

BeginningEasy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology.
For centuries, spices have been used to preserve foods because they contain natural substances that act as inhibitors. Students grow 5 food spoilage microbes on black pepper, clove, and chili powder agars and examine the inhibitory effect of these common spices on the microbes' growth and/or sporulation. Application to food spoilage prevention and the history of the spice trade is discussed and can be easily integrated into a multidisciplinary educational approach. Students practice aseptic technique and microbe culturing.

Time requirements:

  • Preparation: 20 to 90 min
  • Activity on day 1: 15 min
  • Activity on day 2: 15 min

Kit materials are sufficient for 30 students working in groups of 3. Note: Keep bacterial and fungal cultures at room temperature; do not incubate or refrigerate.

For Educational Use Only. All orders are subject to Carolina’s Terms and Conditions
