The target organism is the organism that is the "hardest to kill" in the product.  Typically, milk / dairy has a host of various organisms in it as it is a great growth medium and the perfect water activity and pH for microbial growth & pathogen growth.  By that...if your process targets coxeilla burnetti for the 5 log reduction, or whatever your standard is, then it will be effective on the Non Dairy Creamer.

What are the other ingredients in the NDC?  Water? Stabilizer? Sugar?  What is the final total solids?


I don't know if it would be a good reference for you, but in the US all dairies and other manufacturers who process and package Non Dairy Creamer use the Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO).  Even though this doesn't have milk in it, many times it has caseinate, it somehow still falls under the PMO guidance.
