The beneficial impact of coupling sonication with 400 W and 24 kHz (4, and 8 min) with LDPE antimicrobial nanocomposite packaging containing nano-ZnO (3:100 w/w)  (Pure packaging + US 4, Pure packaging + US 12, Nano packaging + US 4, Nano Packaging + US 12, and Pure packaging (Control)) on inactivation of inoculated saccharomyces cerevisiae (spoilage index) and E.coli (pathogen index) in strawberry juices during  4, 8, 12, 16., and 20 days (4 °C), was evaluated. Ultrasound technology (both 4 and 12 min) significantly (p < 0.05) reduced the population of saccharomyces cerevisiae and E.coli. Also, the D-value of S. cerevisiae was higher than E. coli in strawberry juice indicating its higher resistance to sonication. Application of Nano Packaging + US 12 showed the highest-ranked antimicrobial activity to the other sample and control on the population of the both S. cerevisiae and E. coli inoculated in strawberry juice during 20 days of storage. These achievements paved the way for hurdle technology applications involving combination of antimicrobial packaging containing nano-ZnO with short time sonication in retarding of microbial growth in strawberry juice during cold storage (4 °C).
