Introduction to the Microbiology of Food
Microbial Contamination and Food Degradation, Volume 10 in the Handbook of Food Bioengineering series, provides an understanding of the most common microbial agents involved in food contamination and spoilage, and highlights the main detection techniques to help pinpoint the cause of contamination. Microorganisms may cause health-threatening conditions directly by being ingested together with contaminated food, or indirectly by producing harmful toxins and factors that can cause food borne illness. This resource discusses the potential sources of contamination, the latest advances in contamination research and strategies to prevent contamination using key methods of analysis and evaluation. Industry professionals involved in food safety, quality, and processing; food engineers, food microbiologists, food regulators. He is an experienced and oft-published researcher and editor in the field of nano and biomaterials, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of three journals: Biointerface Research in Applied Chemistry, Letters and Applied NanoBioScience, and Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Bulletin. He also serves as editor or guest editor for several notable journals. Grumezescu has published peer-reviewed papers, 20 book chapters, 6 co-authored books and 11 edited books.
Food spoilage and deterioration is no accident. It is a naturally occurring process. To understand how to maintain the quality of food and prevent spoilage, we need to know what can cause it. Factors that affect food spoilage include:. Many types of microorganisms can cause food problems. The microorganisms that can cause food-borne illness are called pathogenic microorganisms. Pathogenic microorganisms may grow in foods without any noticeable change in odor, appearance or taste.
Food Spoilage and Food Poisoning
Part 1 Detection and analysis of food spoilage: Quantitative detection and identification methods for microbial spoilage; Detection, identification and enumeration methods for spoilage yeasts; Detection, identification and enumeration methods for spoilage moulds; Modelling microbial spoilage; Determining the stability and shelf-life of foods. Part 2 Managing food spoilage: Managing microbial food spoilage: An overview; Managing microbial spoilage in the dairy industry; Managing microbial spoilage in cereal and baking products; Managing microbial spoilage in the meat industry. Part 4 Spoilage moulds: General characteristics of moulds; Zygomycetes; Penicillium and related genera; Aspergillus and related teleomorphs; Other types of spoilage moulds. Part 5 Spoilage bacteria: Pseudomonas and related genera; Lactic acid bacteria; Spore-forming bacteria; Enterobacteriaceae; Other spoilage bacteria. The control of microbiological spoilage requires an understanding of a number of factors including the knowledge of possible hazards, their likely occurrence in different products, their physiological properties and the availability and effectiveness of different preventative measures.
During harvesting, processing and handling operations food may become contaminated with a wide range of microorganisms. Subsequently, during distribution and storage only a small fraction of these will develop and cause serious deteriorations. Which microorganisms will develop or what bio chemical reactions occur is dependent upon food derived or environmental factors. This paper will describe the main mechanisms involved in the loss of food quality for the most important food commodities. Food spoilage may be caused by a wide range of reactions including some that are mainly physical or chemical, others due to action of enzymes or microorganisms. The primary factors associated with food spoilage are associated with intrinsic food properties e.
Hygiene and Environmental Health Module: 8. Food Contamination and Spoilage
Bacteria are the most important microorganisms to the food processor. Most are harmless, many are highly beneficial, some indicate the probable presence of filth, disease organisms, spoilage and a few cause disease. There are thousands of species of bacteria, but all are single-celled and fall into three basic shapes: spherical, straight rods, and spiral rods.
Microbiology is important to food safety, production, processing, preservation, and storage. Microbes such as bacteria, molds, and yeasts are employed for the foods production and food ingredients such as production of wine, beer, bakery, and dairy products. On the other hand, the growth and contamination of spoilage and pathogenic microorganisms is considered as one of the main causes to loss of foodstuff nowadays. Although technology, hygienic strategies, and traceability are important factors to prevent and delay microbial growth and contamination, food remains susceptible to spoilage and activity of pathogen microorganisms. Food loss by either spoilage or contaminated food affects food industry and consumers leading to economic losses and increased hospitalization costs.
Contamination occurs from various physical, chemical and biological sources and is affected by external factors such as temperature, poor hygiene and sanitation. The intrinsic factors such as pH, redox potential, water content and the presence of antimicrobial substances in food also affect the degree of contamination and thereby the spoilage. Contamination leads to spoilage of food due to the microorganisms, enzymes, chemical reactions harmful additives, mycotoxins, bacterial toxins and radiations and physical changes caused by freezing, burning, drying, pressure. Spoilage changes the nitrogenous organic compounds in food into alpha-keto acids, ammonia, propionic acid, amides, imides, and urea. The organic acids are oxidized to carbonates causing the medium to become more alkaline and the consumption of contaminated and spoiled food can lead to various food borne illnesses and intoxication.
All food should be safe and free from contamination and spoilage at all points in its journey from its source until it reaches the consumers. However, food contamination is a serious public health problem in Ethiopia, resulting in foodborne diseases that affect many people every year.
Food Spoilage and Food Poisoning
All food should be safe and free from contamination and spoilage at all points in its journey from its source until it reaches the consumers. However, food contamination is a serious public health problem in Ethiopia, resulting in foodborne diseases that affect many people every year. Hence, awareness of potential sources of food contamination is an important component of good nutrition and good health. In this study session we are going to concentrate on food contamination by microorganisms, chemicals and physical factors. Food may be contaminated by different microorganisms or by chemicals that can cause health problems for anyone who eats it. In Study Session 9 you will learn in detail about foodborne diseases. But first you will be introduced to the basic principles of food microbiology in this study session, and about the ways in which food becomes contaminated by different microorganisms, chemicals and physical objects.
Надеюсь, это не уловка с целью заставить меня скинуть платье. - Мидж, я бы никогда… - начал он с фальшивым смирением. - Знаю, Чед. Мне не нужно напоминать. Через тридцать секунд она уже сидела за его столом и изучала отчет шифровалки.
- Джабба сунул в рот кусочек сыра моцарелла. - Кроме всего прочего, вирус просто не может проникнуть в ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Сквозь строй - лучший антивирусный фильтр из всех, что я придумал. Через эту сеть ни один комар не пролетит. Выдержав долгую паузу, Мидж шумно вздохнула. - Возможны ли другие варианты. - Конечно.
Contamination leads to spoilage of food due to the microorganisms, enzymes, chemical reactions (harmful additives, mycotoxins, bacterial toxins.
