Description

The authors of this book discuss the most recent advancements in food microbiology
research. Chapters include a review on the factors which help to choose the conditions that
assure food microbial stability and contribute to food safety and quality; an examination of
the prevalence of one of the most important food-borne pathogens, L. monocytogenes,
particularly in fruits and vegetables; emerging bacteria detection methods in food and culture
media using mass spectrometry (MS); detection techniques of Salmonella, of which infections
from animal food play an important role in public health and particularly in food safety; and
case studies of yeasts in fruit wine fermentations, which can have important implications for
developing fruit wine and can contribute to an important advancements in any fermentation
products.
Chapter 1 - The ability of microorganisms to grow on foods depends on storage
conditions, food composition, presence of additives and food structure. The latter modify the
way of microorganism growth, in the case of liquids, it occurs planktonically. But, in
structured foods the mobility is restricted; microorganisms are immobilized and grow as
colonies. It must be considered that most of food products present some degree of structure,
such as the case of emulsions, gels and solid foods. However the effect of structure on
microbial growth is scarce evaluated specially when dealing with spoilage flora. Trends
observed about the effect structure on microbial growth are diverse. On one hand many
