Abstract The phenolic compounds extracted from olives with ethyl acetate inhibited germination and outgrowth of Bacillus cereus T spores. Purified oleuropein, a well-characterized component of olive extract, inhibited these processes also. The addition of oleuropein and olive extracts 3 or 5 min after germination began, immediately decreased the rate of change of phase bright to phase dark spores and delayed significantly outgrowth.
