Microbial Biofilms in Food Processing

Richa Sharma, Priya Tyagi.

Abstract
In addition to the food matrix and food systems, a variety of microorganisms may emerge in the industry. Many other species are accountable for the maturation, initial colonization and dispersal of food industry biofilms and related health problems for milk products which are ready to eat food & other food matrices. Human pathogenic agents such as Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, Salmonella entera, Staphylococcus aureus and Listeria monocytogenes are included in this group. Microorganisms, though constantly fighting among themselves, can withstand major changes in their natural environment. In the ecosystem, the cells should adapt or die. Many cells live by residing beneath a thin coat of polysaccharides. In time, this becomes a biofilm that can put together various forms of microorganisms. In the biofilm, microorganisms build a microenvironment that is their own, even if the circumstances are not optimal. In addition to defending against the aggressive environment, this biofilm serves as a pit for nutrient acquisition. The creation of biofilms poses issues in several areas of the food processing industry, in which it may induce energy depletion, limit flows and heat transfer, or obstruct membrane pores. Thesel harmless & human pathogenic microorganisms may create biofilms.

Key words: Biofilms, Food industry, Microorganisms, Pathogens., Human pathogenic bacteria
