Food Microbiology: Current Status

Description :

Foods and microorganisms have interesting associations which developed long before the beginning of recorded history. Foods are not only nutritious to consumers but are also an excellent source of nutrients for microbial growth. Depending upon the microbes present, foods may spoil or preserve the food by fermentation. During the entire sequence of food handling from the production to consumption, microorganisms can affect food quality and human health.
