- ... AIM: The purpose of this study was to clarify the mechanism of the antibacterial action of two high potential and natural food additives, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) and theaflavin‐3,3′‐digallate (TF3), on Clostridium perfringens. METHODS AND RESULTS: Minimal inhibitory concentrations were determined by the serial dilution method. Afterwards, the cells were treated with 250 or 1000 mg l⁻¹ of E ...
