Inhibitory effect of the Polish nisin preparation 'Nizpol' on the growth of spore-forming bacteria isolated from blown and coagulated specimens of evaporated milk was studied. Of the total of 480 strains isolated, 170 were spore-forming rods, Bacillus mesentericus, B. mycoides, B. subtilis, Clostridium sporogenes, B. cereus and Cl. butyricum being most frequently identified but B. megaterium, B. coagulans, B. brevis, B. macerans, B. novus and B. circulans were also present.
