Probiotic Attributes Analysis – Thermal Death Point
Thermal death point (TDP) is the temperature at which an organism is killed within 10 minutes. This test is used to check how the organism reacts to rising temperature. The enzymes of an organism function at a particular temperature. If any of these parameters changes, the growth will decrease with the death of organism. Thermal death point measure the degree of tolerance of an organism, by exposing it to an increasing temperature for a specified time.
