Indicator Organisms

Indicator organisms, also known as surrogate organisms, generally have a certain monitoring and indicating effect on the environment in which food is located. Indicator organisms refer to a group of microorganisms that can be used to indicate the hygienic status of food production environments and processing conditions. The test results may indicate that the food has been exposed to an environment that increases its chance of contamination with pathogens. Therefore, the monitoring of indicator microorganisms plays an important role in the food production and processing industry. The detection of indicator microorganisms in food can also be used to assess whether the heating process to inactivate vegetative bacteria during food processing is sufficient, and to evaluate the quality of food. The detection of indicator microorganisms is mainly based on the presence and quantity of indicator bacteria in the sample. The physical and chemical properties of the food, the extent to which the food is processed, the effects of processing on the indicator organisms, and the native microflora of the food all affect the detection results of indicator organisms. Aerobic plate count is a basic method in indicator organisms detection that can be used to determine the total number of microorganisms in food. Changes in the culture conditions and media can be used to detect and count anaerobic bacteria, thermophiles, psychrophiles and normal temperature bacteria. In addition, food quality testing in the food industry also includes yeast count and mold count. For example, the Howard mold count can be used to detect moldy substances in canned fruit and the hygienic conditions of canned vegetable processing machinery. Yeast and mold tests play an important role in the quality assessment of fermented dairy products, fruit, fruit drinks and soft drinks.
