Viable but Nonculturable Bacteria
The expression “viable but nonculturable” (VNC) bacteria, describes cells that cannot normally be cultured. However this makes little sense, when one considers that the demonstration of culturability remains the best practically acceptable definition of viability.
Revised IFU Method No. 12 for Detection of Alicyclobacillus spp. in Fruit Juices
Alicyclobacillus spp. can be difficult to control in fruit juice products as their spores survive juice pasteurization temperatures and may subsequently germinate and grow after processing if conditions are suitable. The economic impact of such incidents can be very high.
