This thoroughly revised and updated reference provides comprehensive coverage of the latest developments and scientific advances in dairy microbiology—emphasizing probiotics, fermented dairy products, disease prevention, and public health and regulatory control standards for dairy foods.

Containing more than 2350 bibliographic citations, tables, drawings and photographs—550 more than the previous edition—Applied Dairy Microbiology, Second Edition is an invaluable reference for all food and dairy microbiologists, scientists, and technologists; toxicologists; food processors; sanitarians; dietitians; epidemiologists; bacteriologists; public health and regulatory personnel; and veterinarians; and an important text for upper-level undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education students in these disciplines.



“This volume is an excellent ‘road map’ for practicing microbiologists … . The field of coverage is wide … . … This nicely presented book should be on the shelves of libraries in academic institutions and food research organisations. … I am pleased to have the book on my shelf as a summary of knowledge and a guide to the more specific literature on dairy microbiology.”

— Food Technology in New Zealand, Vol. 38, No. 4, April 2003
