The report describes a computer program that simulates the growth and decline of bacterial populations in foods during the various operations of food preparation and processing. By means of this program an existing or proposed food preparation process can be studied, its safety assessed and the critical operations identified. Also hypothetical systems for monitoring the bacterial growth can be tried in the simulation. The basic hypothesis of the simulation is that bacterial growth depends on time and temperature in a food. Detailed instructions for the use of the program are given, and an example is set up and solved.
