Effect Of Sodium Nitrite, Sodium Erythorbate And Organic Acid Salts On Germination And Outgrowth Of Clostridium Perfringens Spores In Ham During Abusive Cooling, Mauricio A. Redondo Sep 2011

Effect Of Sodium Nitrite, Sodium Erythorbate And Organic Acid Salts On Germination And Outgrowth Of Clostridium Perfringens Spores In Ham During Abusive Cooling, Mauricio A. Redondo

Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research in Food Science and Technology

The effect of sodium nitrite (NaNO2), sodium erythorbate, sodium chloride (NaCl) and organic acid salts (potassium lactate and sodium diacetate) on C. perfringens spore germination and outgrowth in ham was evaluated. The research was divided in two parts. The first experiment consisted of potential C. perfringens spore germination and outgrowth in ham containing combinations of NaNO2 (0, 50, 100, 150 or 200 ppm) and sodium erythorbate (0 or 557 ppm) during cooling. This experiment included the evaluation of residual nitrite levels as affected by temperature (heat shock at 75°C for 20 min and subsequent cooling from 54 ...

Dynamic Predictive Model For The Growth Of Salmonella Spp. In Liquid Whole Egg And Risk Evaluation Of Egg White Hydrolysates Manufacturing Process For Spore Formers: Bacillus Cereus And Clostridium Perfringens., Aikansh Singh

Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research in Food Science and Technology

A dynamic model for the growth of Salmonella spp. in liquid whole egg under continuously varying temperature was developed and validated. A primary model (Baranyi model) was fitted to each temperature growth data and corresponding maximum growth rates were estimated. Pseudo-R2 values were greater than 0.97 for primary models. The maximum growth rates obtained from each primary model were then plotted against temperature and modeled using the modified Ratkowsky model. The pseudo-R2 and root mean square error were 0.99 and 0.06 h-1, respectively for the secondary model. A dynamic model for the prediction of ...
