Essential oils (EOs) extracted from Citrus peels contain 85%–99% volatile components (a mixture of monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and their oxygenated derivatives) and 1%–15% non-volatile compounds. Citrus EOs have been long known for their antimicrobial properties, owing to which these EOs have a diverse range of applications. However, no studies h...


... Therefore, it would be of interest to identify potential compounds, the addition of which into the fermentation medium could reduce the problem related to the contamination by microorganisms not performing the alcoholic fermentation. As such, acid treatment and antibiotics are employed in an effort to decontaminate the facilities or control the growth of the yeast; however, both methods exhibit certain limitations [21]. Therefore, EOs that exhibit antimicrobial activity could potentially be used for such reasons. ...
