Other investigators have also shown that centrifugation does not decrease the number of bacteria in milk. Thus, Fjord and Fleischmann claim that centrifugal separation has little value as a means of purification, and Conn states that " milk after passing through a centrifuge, although it contains less gross impurities, shows more bacteria than before.

Page 110 - In the ripening cheese the peptonising or casein-digesting bacteria are quickly eliminated ; the gas-producing bacteria disappear more slowly, sometimes persisting in very small numbers for a long time. The lactic acid bacteria, on the other hand, develop enormously for a time, until the cheese is partially ripened, when they, too, begin to diminish in numbers. 7. The generally accepted theory, that the peptonising...
Page 526 - Tahkil and Al-ta-tin respectively. The division of the Tinne met with on ascending the Stikine is named Tahl-tan, and consists of the Tahl-tan people proper and the Taku.
