Ch 19: Food and Industrial Microbiology: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Food and Industrial Microbiology chapter of this College Microbiology Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning applications of microbiology related to food and industry. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the food and industrial microbiology processes required in a typical college microbiology course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other microbiology work.
  • Identify the food and industrial microbiology concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our college microbiology tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about food and industrial microbiology and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding fermentation, bacteria, mold, microbial factories, bioremediation or any other food and industrial microbiology topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their biology learning
  • Prefer learning biology visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their food and industrial microbiology unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in microbiology
  • Don't have access to their biology teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning food and industrial microbiology simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live microbiology tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn food and industrial microbiology on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Lactic Acid Fermentation: Using Fermentation to Make Food

1. Lactic Acid Fermentation: Using Fermentation to Make Food

You eat food every day that is teeming with bacteria. It might surprise you to learn that many of them were intentionally put there. In this lesson, we will examine bacterial fermentation, required during the production of certain foods.

Yeast Fermentation: Using Fermentation to Make Alcohol

2. Yeast Fermentation: Using Fermentation to Make Alcohol

Without microbiology, you wouldn't be able to enjoy a refreshing adult beverage after work. In this lesson, we will examine the role of yeast in alcohol production.

Bacteria and Mold: The Microbiology of Cheesemaking

3. Bacteria and Mold: The Microbiology of Cheesemaking

Every piece of cheese you eat was produced by microbiology. In this lesson, we will examine the essential roles bacteria and mold play and why cheese wouldn't exist without these microbes.

Microbial Factories: Using Bacteria to Make Specific Compounds

4. Microbial Factories: Using Bacteria to Make Specific Compounds

Microbial factories make use of microorganisms to produce commercial products. In this lesson, we will examine the advantages to using microbes and look at a few commonly produced compounds.

The Ames Test: Using Bacteria to Test for Carcinogens

5. The Ames Test: Using Bacteria to Test for Carcinogens

We often think of bacteria as the bad guys. But in the Ames test, special mutant bacteria can help us avoid getting cancer! Take a look at how they do that in this lesson and test your knowledge with a quiz.

Bioremediation: Microbes Cleaning Up the Environment

6. Bioremediation: Microbes Cleaning Up the Environment

Bioremediation uses living organisms to clean up pollution. In this lesson, we will examine the role of microbes in bioremediation and why it is not a perfect solution for degrading environmental pollutants.

Microbes and the Clothing Industry

7. Microbes and the Clothing Industry

Most people wash their clothing to the clean dirt and bacteria on them. It might surprise you to learn just how many bacteria were intentionally put into them during production. In this lesson, we explore the use of microbes in the clothing industry.

What is Insoluble Fiber? - Sources, Benefits & Examples

8. What is Insoluble Fiber? - Sources, Benefits & Examples

This lesson will cover information on insoluble fiber. We will look at the sources and some of the benefits of consuming insoluble fiber. There is a short quiz to follow the lesson.

What is Yeast? - Definition & Uses

9. What is Yeast? - Definition & Uses

Yeast is a microorganism that belongs to the Fungi kingdom. It is found widely in nature and is used in making some of our favorite foods and drinks. Learn more about this tiny fungus and quiz yourself at the end.

Pros & Cons of Genetically Modified Food

10. Pros & Cons of Genetically Modified Food

This lesson is on the pros and cons of genetically modified foods. We'll learn what genetically modified food is as well as some of the benefits and concerns regarding it.
