Control of Microorganisms by Retarding Growth

  • George J. Banwart


By altering the factors (discussed in Chapter 4) to retard or inhibit the growth of microorganisms, the storage life of foods can be extended. These factors included temperature, water activity, acidity, oxidation-reduction potential, chemical inhibitors, and microbial interactions. Besides these factors, microorganisms can be affected by electrical current (Shimada and Shimahara 1981) as well as homologous phage (Greer 1986).
