Summary - Biotechnologia alimentaria

  • 1.1 Biotechnologia

  • What is the definition of Biotechnology?
    Different technics that use organisms to convert stuff to organic compounds with a biological origen or the knowledge to make new products

    Some are general others by sector
  • Wich plans fall onder hygiene requirements and traceability (RGHT)?
    1. plan of control for the water

    6. plan for wast management 
    7. plan for traceability
    8. plan for control of raw materials for the suppliers
    9. plan to keep product chilled
  • 2.1 HACCP

  • What are ste steps in applying HACCP?
    1. Formation of a HACCP team
    2. Product description 
    3. Determine what the product will be used for
    4. Develop of flowchart
    5. Confirmation of the flowchart
    6. Implementation of the HACCP
  • How does the formation of the HACCP team go?
    • multidisciplinary team. 
    • know how it is mad and sold, experience with the process
    • knowledge about food safety
    • knowledge about HACCP
    • Involved in the self control system
  • How does product description go?
    • Name of product
    • ingridients (incl amounts)
    • microbial and physic-chemical characteristics (pH, water activity, saltiness ect.)
    • Way of packaging
    • Tech treatment of product
    • storage conditions
    • System to indetify product
    • product life (expire date)
    • Destination: where the product is going --> hospital more careful!)
    • Expected use
  • What is a flowchart?
    Schematic and systematic representation of where to food goes to from production to marketing
  • Out of what does HACCP consist?
    1. hazard analysis
    2. critical control points
    3. critical limits
    4. monitor
    5. corrective actions
    6. certification
    7. documentation
  • Wat is a hazard analysis?
    Collecting and evaluating information on hazards and conditions leading to decide which factors are significant for food safety and therefore raised in HACCP?
  • What are the things that you need to take into account when you are analyzing a risk?
    • How likely it is it is that the hazard will occur and its severity 
    • The qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the presence of hazards 
    • microbial hazard: when will the microorganisms multiply
    • production of toxins, chemical s or physical went
    • things that may contribute to the things above. 
  • What is a biological hazard?
    microbial hazard is a part of this

    The presens, incorporation survival enz of living organisms in food. 
    micro organism and there toxins and viruses
    prions ( part of protein that makes you sick)
    living organisms (insects enz. )
  • What is a chemical hazard?
    harmfull chemicals from raw material or process. 
    cleaning, pesticides heavy metal veterinary drugs

    1. Chemical contaminants 
    2. Environmental contaminants
    3. Waste pharmacological and phytosanitary
    4. toxic compounds from processing
    5. toxic from material in contact with food
    6. natural toxins
    7. Endocrine distruptors (hormoonontregelaars
    8. Radionuclide
    9. Prohibited substanes or unauthorized substances
    10. unicellular algae or marine bio toxins
  • Wat is a physical hazard?
    peaces of glass, metal, plastic stone, bone chips, radioactive enz. 
    8% of hazards is this
  • How do you determine the critical control points?
    A phase in which control can be applied. 
    Because of this you can awnser logical questions and decide what to do with a specific condition. 
  • How do you determine the critical control points?
    Establish a critical limit to determine what is unexaptile.
    Like love a seen temp, time or pH
  • How do you monitor the CCP's?
    a plannend sequence of observations or measurements of the parameters. 
    • then 
    • how
    • where
    • when 
    • who
  • How do you determine corrective action?
    Correct your mistake or do not use the product.
  • What can you do if the food is not safe?
    • Hold the food under good conditions in order to decide there destination
    • Repeat the process to get the right standards
    • Use it in an other product line (cocked instead of raw)
    • Give it an other destiny then human consumption 
    • Destroy
  • Ho do you do the verification.
    This is the checking if everything is going as planned. And to determine compliance in the HACCP.
  • How do you document and register?
    You safe all your documents
