The thermal resistance of two strains of Listeria monocytogenes, strain NCTC 7973 and NCTC 5105, was demonstrated at five different temperatures (52,57,62,67, 72C) in pasteurized and whole boiled milk. 3 ml portions of milk suspended at concentrations of ca. 2.23x155 cells ml-1 was heated at temperatures ranging from 52 to 72C. The D-value of NCTC 7973 for fresh boiled milk ranged from 1620 to 60 sec. In pasteurized milk the D-value was computed ranging from 1860 to 75 sec. Moreover the Z-value for the same strain was 14.2C and 11.6C for fresh boiled milk and pasteurized milk respectively. The D-value of strain NCTC 5105 ranged from 1050 to 120 sec. for fresh boiled milk whereas for pasteurized milk it ranged from 2100 to 69 sec. The Z-value of NCTC 5105 was 21.5C and 13.8C for fresh boiled milk and pasteurized milk respectively.

Keywords: Listeria monocytogenes, D-value, Z-value, strain.
