"A study was conducted to evaluate the durability. of the traditional fresh soft cheese Fruhe. manufactured in Sardinia either from goats’ or. sheep’s milk. Four farmstead cheese-making. plants were visited three times during the. Fruhe cheese-making season. During each. visit environmental samples were collected. from food contact and non-food contact surfaces. in order to evaluate the presence of. Enterobacteriaceae, Escherichia coli,. Pseudomonas spp. and Listeria spp. In a total of. 60 environmental samples, Escherichia coli. and Listeria spp. were never detected, while. contamination with Enterobacteriaceae and. Pseudomonas spp. was observed respectively in. 48% and 43% of samples. The microbiological. profile of 48 Fruhe cheese samples was. assessed at different time points during the. product shelf-life. Aerobic mesophilic bacteria,. Enterobacteriaceae, E. coli, Pseudomonas spp.,. Bacillus cereus and Listeria monocytogenes. were investigated at 0, 7, 14 and 21 days after. production. E. coli, L. monocytogenes and B.. cereus were never detected in the product.. Enterobacteriaceae contamination was. observed, showing decreasing levels over time.. Pseudomonas spp. was recovered in only two. Fruhe samples (3.3%) at day 0. Sensory analysis. was also conducted using a triangle test to. determine whether a difference between. Fruhe samples at 14 and 21 days of shelf-life. exists. Based on the evolution of the microbiological. profile and the sensory attributes. observed in the present study, it is reasonable. to assume that the product shelf-life can be. feasibly extended up to 21 days."
