Type of monograph: Guide/Handbook


The microbiological quality of food is fundamental to its ability both to meet consumer-safety standards and to be sored effectively. A large group of experts in food microbiology was brought together under the wing of CNERNA (National Centre for studies and recommandations on nutrition and foodstuffs) and, in particular, its commission in charge of evaluating the microbiological quality of food. The criteria presented do not necessarily correspond to standards, but are good target values to aim for. This is a practical guide that is essential to food-chain managers. Extract of contents: microbiological quality of food; produce and fruit-and vegetable-based products (ready-to-serve products, frozen aromatic herbs); meat and meat products (chilling, freezing, cold rooms, etc.); poultry and egg products (deboning, chilling, freezing); dairy products (ice cream, chilling of milk); fish, seafood products, derived products (refrigerated storage, frozen food, surimi, frozen fish dishes).
