What is it about?

Heat treatment is a widely used process in the food industry. Many microbial strains can survive thermal treatment like pasteurization. The recovery of heat-stressed/injured/survived cells plays an essential role in the post-treatment spoilage step and defines the shelf-life of the food product like orange juice.

Why is it important?

Our results show that the heat-stressed/injured/survived cells of a food product like orange juice behave differently according to the microbial strain type and the environmental conditions.


This work shows the importance of the consideration of the recovery ability of heat injured/stressed/survived cells and their potential spoilage capacity of the food product during storage period. The recovery of heat-injured microorganisms depends on the physicochemical conditions of the product and the type of microorganisms.
