Puupponen-Pimiä, Riitta (2007) Antimicrobial properties of berries. In: NJF Report, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists, 3 (1), pp. 11-12.
Berries, especially their antimicrobial properties, have been studied intensively at VTT over the past ten years in several research projects. In these in vitro studies phenolic berry extracts of common Nordic berries selectively inhibited the growth of harmful bacteria and human intestinal pathogens, without affecting the growth of beneficial lactic acid bacteria.
