Multiple-pass UHPH was used for reducing microbial population of both indigenous spoilage microflora in whole raw milk and a baroresistant pathogen (Staphylococcus aureus) inoculated in whole sterile milk to define pasteurization-like processing conditions. Response surface methodology was followed and multiple response optimization of UHPH operating pressure (OP) (100, 175, 250 MPa) and number of passes (N) (1-5) was conducted through overlaid contour plot analysis. Increasing OP and N had a significant effect (P <0.05) on microbial reduction of both spoilage microflora and S. aureus in milk. Optimized UHPH processes (five 202-MPa passes; four 232-MPa passes) defined a region where a 5- log(10) reduction of total bacterial count of milk and a baro-resistant pathogen are attainable, as a requisite parameter for establishing an alternative method of pasteurization. Multiple-pass UHPH optimized conditions might help producing safe milk without the detrimental effects associated with thermal pasteurization. © 2012 The Authors Letters in Applied Microbiology © 2012 The Society for Applied Microbiology.
