Table 1 Growth rates and generation times and numbers of bacteria in control (CFS-free) and experimental (CFS-treated) cultures

From: Potential of cell-free supernatants from cultures of selected lactic acid bacteria and yeast obtained from local fermented foods as inhibitors of Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp. and Staphylococcus aureus
