This authoritative two-volume reference provides valuable, necessary i nformation on the principles underlying the production of microbiologi cally safe and stable foods. The work begins with an overview and then addresses four major areas: "Principles and application of food prese rvation techniques" covers the specific techniques that defeat growth of harmful microorganisms, how those techniques work, how they are use d, and how their effectiveness is measured. "Microbial ecology of diff erent types of food" provides a food-by-food accounting of food compos ition, naturally occurring microflora, effects of processing, how spoi ling can occur, and preservation. "Foodborne pathogens" profiles the m ost important and the most dangerous microorganisms that can be found in foods, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, mycotoxins, and "mad cow disease."

Editorial Reviews

Microbiologists and food industry experts from the US, UK, Europe, and Canada provide comprehensive coverage of food preservation techniques and microbial ecology of different types of food (volume one), and foodborne pathogens and quality assurance (volume two). Topics in the first section include irradiation, chill storage, drying and reduction of water activity, control of pH and use of organic acids, modified atmospheres, new and emerging physical methods of preservation, and use of combined preservative factors in foods of developing countries. Section two covers the microbial ecology of foods such as fresh red meats, fresh and further-processed poultry, milk and unfermented milk products, fresh and processed fruits, yellow fat products, fruit juices and soft drinks, bottled water, and spices and herbs. The third section discusses taxonomy, characteristics, epidemiology, incidence, growth factors, principles of detection and isolation, and control of specific pathogens, including less recognized and suspected bacterial pathogens. The final section discusses good manufacturing practice, hygienic design of factories and equipment, and detection of microorganisms in foods. Annotation c.
