Listeria, and Leuconostoc spp. Smid Applied and environmental microbiology One of these mechanisms are the acquisition of defense system as the production of antimicrobial peptides AMPsalso known by the name bacteriocins. Considering the safe concerns of using bacteriocinogenic enterococci, the use of purified enterocins may be considered more suitable for food consumption.

One of the more recent trends consists in the incorporation of bacteriocins, directly as purified or semi-purified form or in incorporation of bacteriocin-producing LAB into bioactive films and coatings, applied directly onto the food surfaces and packaging.
