Start date
2014
End date
2017
Objective
(1) Understand how processing conditions favor sporulation by specific thermoduric spore formers during simulated skim milk powder manufacturing processes. (2) Understand how processing conditions favor spore germination and thermophilic build up by specific thermoduric spore formers during simulated skim milk powder manufacturing processes (3) Understand how processing conditions favor biofilm development by specific thermoduric spore formers during simulated skim milk powder manufacturing processes. (4) Conduct microbial shelf life studies by evaluating the quality of concentrated vs. dried ingredients
