Benefits & product details of BAT-A
BAT Agar (pH 4.0 ± 0.2) is a ready-to-use selective agar for isolation and determination of bacterial count of Alicyclobacilli.
Alicyclobacilli are aerobic, acidophilic and thermophilic, spore-forming bacteria that can enter the production process via spores on the surface of windfall fruit; there, they can survive the pasteurisation process and continue to grow vegetatively under optimal conditions. Some Alicyclobacillus strains can produce guaiacol, which causes a strong off-flavour in juices and beverages containing fruit juice. This flavour has a chemical smell similar to that of disinfectant. According to the latest scientific expertise, A. acidoterrestris, A. acidiphilus und A. herbarius have the potential to produce off-flavours.
Further Alicyclobacillus strains such as A. acidocaldarius and A. pomorum, which cannot produce off-flavours in beverages, therefore have less or no potential for beverage spoiling.
Consisting of ready-to-use BAT Culture Media and the enzymatic Guaiacol Detection Kit, the comprehensive solution allows guaiacol-producing Alicyclobacilli to be detected quickly and reliably. This simple detection complies with IFU (International Fruit Juice Union) Method No.12 “Method on Detection of taint producing Alicyclobacillus in Fruit Juices”.
BAT Culture Media and the Guaiacol Detection Kit are suitable for beverages containing juice with a pH of less than 4.5, such as:
• Hot and cold filled fruit juices,
• Fruit juice concentrates,
