  Microbiologists often claim that “microorganisms are omnipresent”, i.e. microorganisms presence is detected everywhere in our surrounding environment, i.e. land, water and air. Microorganisms are found in the deepest point of the sea or in the topmost peak of the world. The food that humans consume usually comes from land or water, get contaminated with microorganisms from the surrounding environment. For making the food safer, different food-processing operations are carried out of which thermal processing is the most commonly used process to reduce or deactivate the microbial load. The best example of thermal processing is sterilization, which ensures elimination of microbial load including the spores and enzymes. For this reason, sterilized products are safer for consumption with the highest shelf life [1-3].
