January 21, 2020

In this episode of The Food Files, Divya Jaroni, FAPC food microbiologist, discusses her research on evaluating the impact of biofilms on food safety. Biofilms are of great food safety concern and pose a significant challenge to the food industry. Dr. Jaroni's research suggest bacteriophages, enzymes and natural antimicrobials could prove to be effective alternatives to control the formation of bacterial biofilms and bacteria hiding in those biofilms.
