Determination of contamination stages of frozen chicken doner
MetadataShow full item record
"Doner" is a traditional food product generally produced with beef, lamb, and/or chicken meat, and is a very popular product in Turkey. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible contamination sources during the processing stages of Chicken Doner. Total viable psychrotrophs, total lactic acid bacteria, Enterobacteriaceae spp., Escherichia coli, total yeast and mold, Salmonella spp., and Staphylococcus aureus counts were determined at 13 processing points. At the freezing stage, lactic acid bacteria and Enterobacteriaceae counts can decrease, but at this point the elimination of E. coli and S. aureus contaminations is also very important.
