About Microbial Testing

In addition to being a nutritious food for humans, milk provides a favourable environment for the growth of microorganisms. Yeasts, moulds and a broad spectrum of bacteria can grow in milk, particularly a range of temperatures between 6*-60*C. Microbes can enter milk via the cattle, air, feedstuffs, milk handling equipment and the milker. Once microorganisms get into the milk their numbers increase rapidly and may cause spoilage or chemical change in the product.

Microbes can enter milk via the cattle, air, feedstuffs, milk handling equipment and the milker. Once microorganisms get into the milk their numbers increase rapidly and may cause spoilage or chemical change in the product. Why is microbial testing important?

1. To ensure safety of food products, microbiological tests which include pathogens and spoilage organisms are required.

2. To foresee the microbiological risk associated with microbial deterioration

3. Monitoring the cleanliness of the products

4. To review the plant hygiene

5. The test result not only makes understanding the factors influencing the growth of microorganisms in food systems but also the means of controlling them.
