What is it about?

Nowadays, there is an increasing interest in finding natural bioactive compounds that inhibit the growth of microorganisms for better quality and shelf-life as alternatives to chemically synthesized preservatives. This paper examines the effects of carnation essential oil on yoghurt. We have investigated several biological activities of Eugenol in carnation essential oil including its antimicrobial, anticancer and antioxidant effects. We also have evaluated the changes in the chemical composition and sensory properties of yoghurt during the storage period.

Why is it important?

Our findings show that Eugenol can enhance the protection of food from microbial or chemical deterioration. The results suggest that 0.6 μl/ml eugenol, can be applied to prolong yoghurt storage time for more than 15 days.


I hope this article finds a way to be commercially applicable.
