The effectiveness of nisin, lactate salts, and high hydrostatic pressure to inhibit the growth of Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella in sliced cooked ham was studied through a combination of PCR-based detection methods, most probable number, and classical microbial enumeration techniques (International Organization for Standardization protocols). A synergistic effect to inhibit a cocktail of Listeria monocytogenes CTC1010, CTC1011, and CTC1034 was observed between potassium lactate, high hydrostatic pressure (400 MPa, 17°C, 10 min), and low storage temperature when sliced cooked ham was stored for 84 days at 1°C. The high hydrostatic pressure treatment also proved to be useful to inhibit a cocktail of Salmonella enterica serotypes London CTC1003, Schwarzengrund CTC1015, and Derby CTC1022.
