Food spoilage microorganisms (Woodhead Publishing Series in Food Science, Technology and Nutrition)
The first part of this essential new book looks at tools, techniques, and methods for the detection and analysis of microbial food spoilage with chapters focusing on analytical methods, predictive modeling, and stability and shelf life assessment. The second part tackles the management of microbial food spoilage with particular reference to some of the major food groups where the types of spoilage, the causative microorganisms, and methods for control are considered by product type. The following three parts are then dedicated to yeasts, molds, and bacteria in turn, and look in more detail at the major organisms of significance for food spoilage. In each chapter the taxonomy, spoilage characteristics, growth, survival, and death characteristics, methods for detection, and control options are discussed.
Food Spoilage Microorganisms takes an applied approach to the subject and will be an indispensable guide both for the microbiologist and the non-specialist, particularly those whose role involves microbial quality in food processing operations.
