Quantitative Study Of Growth Of Some Dairy Psychrophiles, Taher A. El-Farekh

Masters Theses

Summary and Conclusions:

Samples of pasteurized skim milk were steamed for 25 minutes at approximately 100° C. and inoculated with pure cultures of Pseudomonas fluorescens, A and B, at different levels, Pseudomonas fragi, Brevibacterium lipolyticum. The fifth culture was the normal flora of commercially pasteurized skim milk treated as a pure culture. All samples were stored at 4° C. Bacterial growth was determined using agar plates incubated at 25° C. for 3 days.

The generation time was calculated for all cultures which ranged from 5.55 hours for Pseudomonas fragi to 11.24 hours for Brevibacterium lipolyticum. The generation time ...
