Lecture Note

Food often provides an ideal environment for microbial survival and growth. Microbial growth in food involves successional changes, with intrinsic (food related) and extrinsic (environmental) factors interacting with the microbial communities. Wines, beers and other alcoholic products are also produced through microbial activities. On the other hand, food can also serve as vehicles for disease transmission, and the detection and control of pathogens and food spoilage microorganisms are important parts of food microbiology. Microbial growth in foods can result in either preservation or spoilage depending on the microorganisms involved and the food storage conditions. Contamination by disease-causing can occur at any point in the food-handling sequence.
