Compositions and Methods for Inhibiting Endospores Using Green Tea Polyphenols

Description:

Researchers at Augusta University have invented skin-friendly compositions and methods for killing, inactivating, or otherwise reducing the bacterial endospores by using an effective amount of green tea phenols (GTPs) or its derivatives. GTPs can also be used as an additive in an existing line of products to make it more effective and green. This technology can also be used in a variety of other applications, for example, to increase the shelf-life of a food or a foodstuff, to reduce or delay the spoilage of a food or a foodstuff, or to decontaminate a device contaminated with spores.
