Spice up your life! And your food to fight food poisoning.

Campylobacter jejuni is responsible for most food poisoning related diarrhea. It's most commonly found in chicken. This research report checks out how successful six different marinades are at fighting this bacteria. Looks like thyme based marinades were the best! Let's make some wings!

Experimental spice-based marinades could be used for marinating broiler meat to ensure the enhanced safety of contaminated broiler meat by reducing Campylobacter jejuni counts. Thyme-based and rosemary-based marinades may reduce public health risk to acquire campylobacteriosis through miss-handling and consumption of marinated broiler meat and satisfy consumers demand for more natural broiler meat products.
