  1. 1. Microbial test organisms for sterilization processes in food industry

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Bioteknik; Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Yasmin Nabila; [2018]
    Keywords : Aseptic processing and packaging; validation; test organisms; Aspergillus brasiliensis; Bacillus atrophaeus; Bacillus subtilis; sterilization; disinfection; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Technology and Engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : The importance of sterilization processes has been a major topic in the food manufacturing industry since it preserves the quality and provides longer shelf-life by preventing microbiological recontamination of products. Aseptic packaging is an alternative technique to pack commercially sterile products into containers with a very low recontamination rate, thus, the entire production chain must be designed according to the aseptic condition, including the packaging material, the filling machines, and the surrounding area where the process takes place.

  2. 2. Development of a high-throughput screening Queso Fresco model for evaluating antimicrobials

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk mikrobiologi

    Author : Jonna Östberg; [2018]
    Keywords : Queso Fresco; Listeria monocytogenes; fluorescence; luminescence; antimicrobial; applied microbiology; teknisk mikrobiologi; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogen, sometimes occurring in fresh cheese, such as Queso Fresco. Antimicrobials could be utilized to prevent the presence of L. monocytogenes in this type of cheese. READ MORE

  3. 3. Co-occurence and co-metabolism of phototrophic and heterotrophic microbial communities in the Baltic Sea

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Cátia Ifigénia Corujo Chaves; [2017]
    Keywords : microbiology; extracelullar enzymatic activity; amplicon sequencing; 16S and 18S sequencing;

    Abstract : In the marine water column, microbial autotrophs and heterotrophs coexist forming the beginning of the food chain which sustains the whole biological system. Both groups play a vital role in the microbial loop. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biopreservation effects with Wickerhamomyces anomalus after 2 months moist airtight storage of sorghum

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Microbiology

    Author : Louise Nybogård; [2016]
    Keywords : wickerhamomyces anomalus; sorghum; storage; biocontrol; biopreservation; food loss;

    Abstract : Today one third of all produced food is thrown away and one reason for this is microbial spoilage. Hunger and malnutrition in Africa could be reduced if the food loss is reduced. Wickerhamomyces anomalus is a possible biocontrol agent in food science that has shown antifungal and antibacterial effects on, for example, stored barley. READ MORE
