About The Event
Transforming simple food to delicacy requires the work of “miraculous” microorganisms. However they need to be the “chosen” ones. In this course, we will explore the world of microbes through their roles in our food production, by highlighting the relevance of microbiological concepts to prevent our delicacies turning into poison. During the course we will explore basic microbiological concepts through the following: 1. Microbes in food and their metabolism producing alcoholic beverages,vinegar and milk-derived products. 2. When microbes growth here they should not: Toxin production and impacts caused by modern human technologies. 3. Relevance of microbes protecting our body: Making visible all what could attack us and does not (usually). We strongly recomment to visit the Beginners Microbiology course before this one.
