To examine the inhibitory effect of nisin on Kimchi, comparison of the fermentation pattern was studied between the Kimchi added nisin (100 WIg) and the control Kimchi at 15cC. The Kimchi added nisin was showed pH 4.03 at 7 days fermentation, on the other hand the control Kimchi showing pH 4.04 at 5 days. And total acidity (lactic acid%) showed 0.47,0.69,0.88 at 5,9, 14 days fermentation compared with the control Kimchi showing 0.57,0.93, 1.13 respectively. Maximum growth of lactic acid bacteria on the control Kimchi indicated 1.8, 1.6 x 108 CFU/ml at 7 days but on presence of nisin indicated 9.5,6.4 x 107 CFU/ml at 5 days. In conclusion, nisin showed inhibitory action to Kimchi fermentation from pH, total activity and lactic acid bacteria count results.
