Fundamental Food Microbiology

Bibek Ray (1996)

Perfect for students and professionals who want information on the basics of food microbiology, Fundamental Food Microbiology is packed with descriptions of foodborne microbes and their effects. It also discusses technological developments in food production and handling, along with approaches to controlling new microbiological problems.

The book has seven sections:

1. Introduction to Microbes in Food,

2. Microbial Growth in Food,

3. Beneficial Uses of Microorganisms in Food,

4. Microbial Food Spoilage,

5. Microbial Foodborne Disease,

6. Control of Microorganisms in Food, and

7. appendices.

The chapters are subdivided, facilitating reading and comprehension. Geared to the needs of today's students, researchers, and food industry workers, Fundamental Food Microbiology delivers valuable, relevant information.

516 pages, hardcover. Member: $79.95. Nonmember: $93.25. Catalog #575.

Microbial Food Poisoning--Second Edition

Edited by Adrian R. Eley (1996)

As in the first edition, Adrian Eley summarizes information on the principal agents that cause food poisoning and emphasizes their mode of action. Chapters written by specially selected experts in the area also discuss the epidemiological features of food poisoning, the microbiological control of food production, mycotoxic fungi, and food safety legislation. Each chapter discusses recent changes in laboratory practice, legislation, and so forth. Also included in this edition is a new chapter on food hygiene.

224 pages, softcover. Member: $45. Nonmember: $55. Catalog #416.

Microorganisms in Foods 5: Characteristics of Microbial Pathogens

International Commission on Microbiological Specifications for Foods (1996)

The control of food safety in modern food processing relies on the hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) system and other systems that identify hazards and define processes to control them. These approaches demand a thorough understanding of the properties of microbial pathogens under all the conditions that could be found in foods and the food-processing environment. Microorganisms in Foods 5 presents detailed information in an accessible and systematic way about each of the main organisms responsible for causing microbial food poisoning. For each organism, it gives an overview of key properties followed by a series of tables detailing the responses of the organism under a range of variable conditions. This compilation of high-quality, reliable data on the behavior of food-poisoning organisms is an essential source of information for food technologists, product developers, food microbiologists, and regulators.

513 pages, hardcover. Member: $165. Nonmember: $192.50. Catalog #579.

Modern Food Microbiology--Sixth Edition

James M. Jay (1996)

The sixth edition of this highly acclaimed text explores the fundamental elements affecting the presence, activity, and control of microorganisms in food. It includes new chapters on food preservation by modified atmosphere and high-pressure and pulsed-electric-field processing, as well as an introduction to foodborne pathogens.
