Algunos microorganismos útiies y bacterias patógenas como por ejemplo

Pseudomonas, Vibrio, Escherichia, Salmonella, Listeria, Streptococcus,

Staphyiococcus, IVIycobacteria, tienen la capacidad de adherirse y crecer

en los alimentos ylo en las superficies que están en contacto con ellos

formando biopeiiculas. Estas son significativamente importantes en el cam¬

po alimentario porque causan serios problemas que dificultan y perjudican

las operaciones y los procesos al generar pérdidas de energía, reducción

del flujo (en tuberías) y transferencia de calor, y taponamiento de poros

de membranas, entre otros. Este documento considera los aspectos bio¬

lógicos y fisicoquímicos relacionados con la formación y desarrollo de las

biopeiiculas, lo cual, unido al desarrollo de metodologías de diagnóstico e

identificación, permitirán desarrollar estrategias que faciliten la prevención

y control de la contaminación en la industria de alimentos para mantener

los sistemas libres de biopeiiculas y favorecer la calidad y seguridad de

los alimentos.
