||In the food industry, airflow may be a potential source of contamination because the airborne particles can introduce foreign matter, including microbial contaminants, into the products produced. This literature review deals with air handling in controlled environments. Main topics covered: bioaerosols; clean-room technology; air handling in clean rooms (air distribution, airflow, filtration, pressure difference, humidity and temperature, exhaust); personnel behaviour and clothing in clean rooms; limitation of risks; methods of air-quality assessment; airborne microbial contamination in various food processes (dairies, breweries and beverage production, bakeries, meat and poultry production); air disinfection methods in the food industry; clean-room applications in food and drink processes.
