Annotation -
The aim of the course is to acquaint students with traditional production of food, beverages and other products which require microbial agents to obtain final product. These industries include malting and brewing, wine-making, distilling industry, production of baker's yeast and biomass for feed purposes, production of organic acids (vinegar, citric acid and lactic acid) and others. Lectures are mainly focused on an overview of mentioned technologies, characterization and processing of raw materials, physiology of microbial agent, microbial process, product separation and waste management.
