Food Hygiene Microbiology and HACCP

Author: P.R. Hayes
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781475752540
Release Date: 2013-11-09
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Food microbiology is a fascinating and challenging science. It is also very demanding with a constantly changing sea of guidelines, regulations and equip ment. Public concerns over food safety issues can overemphasize certain risks and detract from the normal hygienic practice of food manufacturers. This new edition aims to update anyone concerned with the hygienic production of food on key issues of HACCP, food microbiology and the methods of microbe detection. I have taken a 'crystal ball' approach to certain topics. The use of rapid techniques such as lux gene technology and polymerase chain reaction (DNA probes) are progressing so rapidly in the research laboratory that when this book is in print the techniques may be more readily available. New methods for investigating viral gastroenteritis due to small round structured viruses (SRSV) have been developed past the 'research' stage and may become more standard in the next few years. Undoubtedly this will alter our understanding of the prevalence of viral food poisoning. I have also included issues such as new variant CJD (associated with BSE infected cattle) which at the time of writing has only caused the deaths of 20 people, but due to the uncertain incubation time could be a far more serious problem. In the UK there has been a much publicised outbreak of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 which has resulted in a government inquiry and the recommenda tion of the generic HACCP approach. Hence this approach to HACCP imple mentation has been included.

Publisher: Wageningen Academic Pub
ISBN: 9789076998770
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Science

Increasing public demand for adequate and safe food supply has led to extensive development in the field of plant-animal production, food processing, quality and safety procedures, food analysis and control and regulations. However, safety of food can only be guaranteed by the integration of control systems in the complete food chain "from stable to table".This book covers the total agri-food chain. The first section includes a chapter giving a clear overview of the food production chain, followed by chapters about distinct safety risk factors (biological, chemical, physical and others) occuring in the agri-food chain. The third section deals with various systems to handle these risk factors. It includes a chapter on the various quality assurance systems, a detailed chapter on HACCP, as well as on risk management, modelling of safety, and tracking and tracing. The last section includes chapters on the different stakeholders (consumer, legislation, ethics) that are concerned with food safety.The book is aimed at supporting educational programmes on safety in agri-food chains in higher education and at the academic level. It can also be used as a handbook in food industry and agri-business.

Demands for safe food, against a background of increasing trade, are making international controls on food safety essential. Agreements on how to control the safety of food to meet these needs are now in place among the major trading blocks, particularly in Europe and in the USA, and more recently, in Australia. This book also describes progress in areas such as systematically reviewing risk from food, developing national infrastructures to enforce standards and growing input from consumer groups and others, including economists, to the debate on how to set international food standards. Discussed in-depth is the effort to achieve global standards for food safety under the auspices of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

Chemical Food Safety

Author: Leon Brimer

ISBN: 9781845936761
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Chemical food safety deals with all aspects of chemical risks in the food chain, predominantly with the biologically active components of food, additives, contaminants and their toxicology. Preventing the contamination of food with problematic chemical compounds requires a thorough understanding of how compounds enter and pass through the food production process, in addition to toxicology and risk management. Chemical Food Safety covers the underlying principles and applied science required to understand, analyse and take professional action on food safety problems and questions that call for interventions at a local, national or international level. The text follows food contaminants through the production and processing of plant, fungal, algal and animal foods, including oral exposure and intestinal absorption. Risk assessment is explained in the context of targeted future risk management and risk communication, with a view to assessing, managing and communicating risk in the food chain.Chemical Food Safety is ideal for higher level students as well as those working in the food production industry, consultants and national food authorities.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a systematic method to identify, evaluate and control food safety hazards. Since its initial development in the 1960s, HACCP has been increasingly used at every stage of the food chain. In many countries, it is a legal requirement for all food business operators to have some form of hazard analysis based on this system, and so there has been a growing interest in all aspects of HACCP.. Leatherhead Food Research has, for many years now, offered a comprehensive food safety training programme. These training courses are now going to be complemented with the first in a series of food safety publications. This guide is designed as an easy-to-use reference book to help all staff implement a thorough HACCP plan into their industry. A good understanding of HACCP is essential right across the board, from team leaders, production and engineering staff, and supervisors to those working the line including CCP monitors. The book contains detailed descriptions of all the basic information required to undertake a HACCP study. In addition to this, the book has been designed to allow photocopying of certain figures, tables and workflow diagrams. This publication has been designed as a practical user-friendly guide to HACCP, and is intended to be used as a reference back in the factory. It can be used as an introduction to the basics for those who have never received HACCP training or as a checklist for those who are already using HACCP on a daily basis.
