Issues related to spore-forming acidophilic bacteria, Alicyclobacillus, are among the most serious problems facing the beverage industry in recent years. This book was written for the purpose of providing a compilation of currently available information about this concern, and it is hoped it will serve as a reference to inquiries on this issue from those involved in beverage production as well as the suppliers of major ingredients such as juice concentrates, liquid sugars and other additives.
