Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Micro-organisms and food have been linked since the beginning of human nutrition. Depending on their nature, they constitute:
- A threat to the health of consumers
- A cause of food spoilage
- A necessary and indispensable element in the production of food.
Whatever their nature, their relationships with the food that carries them are studied in terms of microbial ecology in order to better understand them. Their identity is increasingly well established, their function increasingly deciphered, as well as their ability to withstand the conditions of food production and even to communicate with each other. This better knowledge of their properties must continue and be used to, as appropriate, prevent their transfer to the food, detect and control them, but also assess them in terms of public health risks.
