A.K. Jaiswal,  and S. Jaiswal     Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin, Ireland

Abstract

A predictive food microbiological model is a mathematical representation of mechanisms that describe the growth, survival, inactivation, or biochemical process of an organism. It is used in the food industry to predict food pathogen growth and to help in the evaluation of food safety. In addition, it reduces the number of expensive and time-consuming laboratory experiments; however, adequate statistical analysis is a crucial step during all phases of model development and validation. This chapter is focused on the basic concept of mathematical modelling, which can be applied to estimate ...
