Alicyclobacillus - Thermophilic Acidophilic Bacilli
Edited by Yokota, A.; Fujii, T.; Goto, K.
Thermophilic acidophilic spore-forming bacteria Alicyclobacillus can grow at low pH and at moderately high
temperatures such as 40°C. Some of the species are known to cause spoilage of acidic beverages
and produce medicinal odors. However, they do not produce gas or cause any change in the
appearance of the beverage container, and therefore the spoilage is discovered only when the consumer
opens and begins to consume the product.

Fortunately, Alicyclobacillus are not pathogenic bacteria, but they are troublesome, not only for
consumers but also for beverage producers, because no effective control methods have yet been
developed. It is against this background and in recognition of the importance and urgency of the
problem that International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Japan has published this book, bringing
together new insights on the topic together with research published to date.
Of interest to: Researchers, quality assessment and quality control staff, sales representatives
of food companies, trade companies, undergraduate students who study food microbiology
