The Fit for Purpose Evaluation of the BACT/ALERT® System for the Detection of Microbial Detection in a Variety of Plant Based Alternative Dairy Beverages.

Much is known about the spoilage of traditional dairy, but little information is available about the microbial spoilage of the very popular plant-based alternative dairy beverages. In addition, current methods require anywhere from 5–10 days to evaluate the aseptic quality of the product. Manufactures would prefer faster reliable results to get good quality product to market earlier in the shelf life. Therefore, a fit-for-purpose evaluation was performed with the BACT/ALERT® (BTA) on Coconut, Hazelnut, Oat, and Almond plant-based beverages by spiking with potential spoilage organisms and evaluating at different timed intervals of pre-incubation.
