Fruits are natural sources of minerals, vitamins besides carbohydrates and other essential substances. Naturally fresh fruits and juices made out of them contain high amount of water thereby making them highly prone to attack by microorganisms. While most of the fruits are naturally provided with coatings and coverings in the form of skins, but these are fragile enough to be easily disturbed by various biological and mechanical factors. Like vegetables, fruits being produce of plants get contaminated through different sources by a variety of microorganisms which may play significant role in their spoilage. These are soil, water, diseased plant, harvesting and processing equipments, handlers, packaging and packing material and contact with spoiled fruits. The microorganisms associated with fruits depend on the structure of fruit.
Vegetables form an integral part of diet due to their role in providing various types of vital nutrients such as carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, roughage etc. Vegetables being a part of fresh produce, contain high moisture which makes them highly perishable foods and hence more prone to spoilage. Microorganisms gain entry into vegetables from various sources. These sources include:. The conditions in which vegetables are stored and transported after harvesting also contribute to rate of spoilage. Other than microbial, sources, the spoilage of vegetables can also occur due to the activity of native enzymes.

Bacteria are the most important microorganisms to the food processor. Most are harmless, many are highly beneficial, some indicate the probable presence of filth, disease organisms, spoilage and a few cause disease. There are thousands of species of bacteria, but all are single-celled and fall into three basic shapes: spherical, straight rods, and spiral rods. To see them, you need a microscope that magnifies about fold. All bacteria reproduce by dividing into two cells.
The focus of this chapter is to provide a general background on microbiological spoilage of fruit and vegetable products that are organized in three categories: fresh whole fruits and vegetables, fresh-cut fruits and vegetables, and fermented or acidified vegetable products. This chapter will address characteristics of spoilage microorganisms associated with each of these fruit and vegetable categories including spoilage mechanisms, spoilage defects, prevention and control of spoilage, and methods for detecting spoilage microorganisms. Fresh fruit and vegetable consumption increased by If US consumption patterns continue in this direction, total per capita consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables would surpass consumption of processed fruits and vegetables within the next decade. This shift toward overall increased produce consumption can be attributed, at least in part, to increased awareness in healthy eating habits as revealed by a broad field of research addressing food consumption and health and promoted by the M. Sperber, M. Doyle eds.

Но Сьюзан не желала иметь с ним никакого дела. И, что, на взгляд Хейла, было еще хуже, влюбилась в университетского профессора, который к тому же зарабатывал сущие гроши. Очень жаль, если она истратит свой превосходный генетический заряд, произведя потомство от этого выродка, - а ведь могла бы предпочесть его, Грега. У нас были бы красивые дети, - подумал. - Чем ты занята? - спросил Хейл, пробуя иной подход.
- Но немец даже не шевельнулся. Росио изо всех сил уперлась руками в его массивные плечи. - Милый, я… я сейчас задохнусь! - Ей стало дурно.
- Я нашел его в паспорте и хочу разыскать владельца. Сердце Ролдана упало.
- Не нахожу. Как, вы сказали, имя девушки, которую нанял ваш брат. - Рыжеволосая, - сказал Беккер, уклоняясь от ответа. - Рыжеволосая? - переспросила. Пауза.
Священник готовился начать молитву. Беккер осмотрел свой бок. На рубашке расплывалось красное пятно, хотя кровотечение вроде бы прекратилось. Рана была небольшой, скорее похожей на глубокую царапину. Он заправил рубашку в брюки и оглянулся.
