Spoilage Organisms

Spoilage describes the process of natural food decay, which includes a significant decline in quality (color, consistency, smell, and taste) but without causing illness. Causes of food spoilage include decomposition processes caused by bacteria and fungi. Possible unwanted metabolites produced include organic acids, alcohols, ketones, amino acids and ammonia.
