    Alcoholic/Non Alcoholic Drinks & Beverages (Carbonated/ Non-carbonated)

    Alcoholic & Non-alcoholic beverages play a very important role in the dietary pattern of people in developing countries. They are regarded as after meal drinks or refreshing drinks. Most of these beverages are made up of about water, alcohol, sugar, flavouring agents and sometimes preservatives. These beverages are, however, highly prone to microbial deterioration if not adequately stored. A large number of bacteria and fungi cause spoilage as they can use the carbohydrate content for fermentation processes producing undesirable changes in them. The products of fermentation like acids, alcohols, diacetyls affect the organoleptic properties of foods.
