Temperature Sensors and Their Uses
The temperature of food plays a big role in assuring
that certain products are well enough cooked to kill harmful organisms like bacteria.
Similarly, many foods, including cooked food, become breeding grounds for other
harmful organisms if unrefrigerated too long or even if left in a refrigerated
environment for too long a time.
Certainly in the cooking area
it is quite straightforward to monitor the internal temperature of meats and other
foods to assure that the proper minimum temperature has been attained before it
is considered safe. Below is a list of some cooking temperature rules for food
per the US Dept of Agriculture's "Thermy" Food Safety campaign.
Be sure to come back and see how this area expands. Who knows,
we might even be tempted to put some of our favorite receipes up for public consumption.
