In a recent article from Water Quality & Health online, it discusses the reasoning behind 500,000 citizens without clean tap water. The cause of this is due to microcystins. “Microcystins are a large class of naturally occurring toxic chemical substances produced by waterborne bacteria known as Microcystis, also called ‘blue-green algae’ or ‘cyanobacteria.” This can be caused by nutrient-rich wastewater and agricultural runoff into water bodies creating microcystis blooms. Microcystis blooms thrive with sufficient levels- of phosphorus and nitrogen as well as temperatures in the 5 to 30 degrees C range and a pH ranging from 6-9. “Microcystin (the toxin) is released when the bacteria die and their cells break open.”
Food Quality & Safety recently published an article entitled “The Art Behind Quality Craft Beer.” This article discusses 5 important aspects that should be considered when crafting quality beer including keeping it fresh, making the yeast happy, sanitation, education, and equipment. These components are extremely important to ensure the breweries intended flavor profile. As the craft brewing industry continues to skyrocket, it becomes imperative that breweries differentiate themselves in the market.
Hanna Instruments is pleased to announce the release of our new Knowledge Base video which discusses the use of the HI96811 refractometer to determine the sugar content in grapes.
