Abstract

Abstract.

and pathogenic in contaminated drinking water can cause melioidosis and leptospirosis, respectively. Here, we evaluated their survival in beverages. We mixed six isolates (three isolates per organism) in four beverages (Coca-Cola, Red Bull, Singha beer, and Gatorade) and distilled water as the control at two final concentrations (1 × 10 colony-forming units [CFU]/mL and 1 × 10 CFU/mL). The solution was kept at two temperatures (37°C and 4°C). At 4°C and at the high concentration, pathogenic survived in Coca-Cola up to 3 minutes and in Singha, Red Bull, and Gatorade up to 15 minutes, whereas survived in these beverages up to 8 hours, and 14, 14, and 28 days, respectively. The survival time of both organisms was shorter at 37°C ( = 0.01) and at the lower concentration ( = 0.001). In conclusion, can survive in some beverages for up to 15 minutes, whereas can survive in some beverages for up to 4 weeks.
