The effect of growth temperature is well-documented as one of the factors which can affect the heat resistance of bacteria (Elliker & Frazier, 1938; Hansen & Riemann, 1963; Beuchat, 1978). In general, a lower growth temperature produces bacteria more sensitive to heat. The lowering of the growth temperature also results in an increase in the proportion of unsaturated fatty acid in bacteria (Marr & Ingraham, 1962; Cullen ef al., 1971); the corresponding alteration of heat resistance has… CONTINUE READING
