Comments P.1080 left column 3rd paragraph: "Different spices provide antimicrobial activity, this is due to certain chemical compounds with the capacity to inhibit the growth of microorganisms. Figure 2 summarizes the range of inhibition achieved by different spices. Cinnamon clove, rosemary, and oregano have achieved levels of bacterial inhibition between 75% and 100% due to their chemical compounds, such as pinenes, eugenol, and cinnamaldehyde (primary sources)."
