Safety of camelus dromedarius and Microbial quality in milk chain and implications

Abstract


Misiko, B. N.

The camel milk chain was investigated for microbial quality and safety and its implications to public health. At production, 66% of the samples had microbial load less than 105 cfu/ml compared to 54% at bulking and marketing where the microbial load was over 106 colony forming units (cfu)/ml. Grambulking and marketing. Salmonella spp. were detected at production and bulking levels. There was slow rate in acid development in camel milk decreasing total viable count at market level by 29% in 5 h.
