What happens after reduction of 6th log cycle in food having 1000,000 microorganisms.?
log cycle) Bacteria (1,000,000 in raw milk) 1) 100,000 2) 10,000 3) 1,000 4) 100 5) 10 6) 1 7) .1 8) .01 etc Now, you may ask, how can we have .1 bacteria or .01 bacteria. You can’t, of course, but look at it in this light. The bacteria you are counting are from one drop of milk on a microscope slide. It represents a much larger sample, say a 1000 gallon tank of milk. So that .1 count of bacteria represents one live bacteria in 10 drops of milk. Since there are millions of drops in one gallon, there still are a lot of live bacteria in your 1000 gallon tank. Often they consider the 12th log cycle to be the safety point in milk.
