Presents all facets of food microbiology to undergraduates
The multidisciplinary nature of food microbiology is one of the things that make it so fascinating as a career. Food microbiologists must understand basic microbiology, the roles of beneficial microbes, food safety regulations and policy, and the proper practices that ensure safe and healthy food for billions of people.

Written in a clear and easy-to-understand style, the textbook is divided into four sections:
