Hi,

 

I'm trying to find out the yeast and mould recommended guidelines for fruit in an ice cream slice I've made as a nutrition student for my report. I've found a figure of <1000 cfu/g from a  European Commission Health & Consumer Protection document. Is this correct? Thanks,

 

Charlie

Hi Charlie,,

 

If you are seeking for UK, according to HPA (2009) seems there are no "official" Guidelines for Y&M in RTE retail products except one other food category..

 

I think yr "EC" (not an official limit afaik ?) figure has been discussed here previously. Was considered high, can see this thread (yoghurt) -

here are a few more (Heinz,1991) -

A tougher suggested limit (Japan) here -

Strictly you probably need a sampling plan, eg nmMc

 

PS - for fruit puree itself, should be rather low if produced as here -
