Product description

From the Back Cover

This widely acclaimed text covers the whole field of modern food microbiology. Now is in its third edition, it has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the most recent developments in the field. It covers the three main aspects of the interaction between micro-organisms and food - spoilage, foodborne illness and fermentation - and the positive and negative features that result. It discusses the factors affecting the presence of micro-organisms in foods and their capacity to survive and grow. Also included are recent developments in procedures used to assay and control the microbiological quality of food and protect public health. The book is a thorough and accessible account designed for students in the biological sciences, biotechnology and food science. It will also be valuable to researchers, teachers and practising food microbiologists. Comments on the Second Edition "... recommended as a text or reference book for anybody studying food microbiology ... a handy, cheap and easily accessed source of information ..." Microbiology Today, Vol 28, August 2001, p 157 "... Food Microbiology remains an excellent, well-priced textbook for undergraduate courses in the discipline... I commend it to teachers and students of food microbiology everywhere." Food Australia, 53, (12), December 2001, p 588
