Lacroix which was release on 15 November 2010, this book published by CRC Press. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: Consumers favor foods and beverages with fewer synthetic additives, but products must also be safe to eat and have a sufficiently long shelf-life. Biopreservation (using a food’s natural microflora and/or their antibacterial products for protection against pathogens and spoilage), is a method of growing interest for the safe production of minimally-processed foods. Protective Cultures, Antimicrobial Metabolites and Bacteriophages for Food and Beverage Biopreservation explores this critical process that effectively balances food safety and shelf life longevity.
