Microbiological analysis of food products are applied to control the microbiological quality of the food (spoilage indicator organisms and/or hygiene indicator organisms) or to evaluate food safety by means of detection of foodborne pathogens and/or their toxins.

It is advisable that only relevant parameters are analysed, meaning (depending on the food products) those microorganisms responsible for spoilage of the food, or those microorganisms causing a potential risk for food safety and public health.


Regulation (EC) No 178/2002 of the European Parliament and the Council of 28 January 2002, is laying down the general principles and requirements of the food law, establishing the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and laying down procedures in matters of food safety.
