Abstract

The evaluation of dairy products with reference to compliance with regulatory standards has led to an increased testing of the products for specific microbiological parameters. Milk and dairy products are generally tested for food borne pathogens in addition to spoilage bacteria that can reduce the shelf life of products and cause product spoilage. Culture techniques have traditionally been used, while several rapid techniques based on immunologic and DNA-based methodologies have also been introduced recently. It is important to learn about different microbiological analytical methods that are available and to use the appropriate methods to achieve the desired results.
