As per available reports about 150 journals, 162 Conferences, 30 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to food hygiene and about 366282 articles are being published on the current trends in food hygiene. In terms of research annually, USA, India, Japan, Brazil and Canada are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to food hygiene are being carried out. As reported in “Evaluation of Antifungal Activity of Some Plant Extracts and their Applicability in Extending the Shelf Life of Stored Tomato Fruits” article, Ethanolic extracts of tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus), rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis L) and thyme (Thymus vulgaris L.) and the essential oil of oregano (Origanum vulgare L.) were tested against many fungi including A.niger, A.flavus, Penicillium spp., Rhizopus spp. and fusarium spp. Oregano essential oil showed a very strong antifungal activity against Fuazarium spp. (MIC: 0.8 mg/ml), A.niger (MIC: <1 mg/ml) and Penicillium spp. (MIC: 4.5 mg/ml) whereas other fungi showed more resistant. The results showed that Rhizopus spp. was the most sensitive fungus to the plant extracts whereas rosemary was the most effective plant. Application of essential oils or ethanolic rosemary extract with different concentrations (100, 500, 1000, 1500, 2000 ppm) and refrigeration storage (at either 5 or 25°C) for postharvest spoilage control of tomatoes for 4 weeks showed that the combination of two treatments (refrigeration with either oregano essential oil or rosemary extract) was more effective to keep quality of tomatoes.
