Traditionally, lactic acid bacteria(LAB) is microorganism that has been used for food fermentation. Bacteriocinogenic culture and by-products of lactic acid bacteria have the antimicrobial effect. The antimicrobial effect of lactic acid bacteria enable to extend the shelf life of many foods through fermentation processes. Therefore, a lot of investigation of antimicrobial compounds from LAB have been studied on the effect of foods preservation of fish, meat, dairy product, refreserated nonfermentive food and so on. However a little research on the effects of LAB in fruit and vegetables preservation has been reported. In this study, effectiveness of LAB as a quality preservative in fruit and vegetables storage were reviewed.
