Abstract: Bacillus cereusis capable of producing enterotoxin and emetic toxin that cause severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of temperature on the growth, inactivation and toxin production of B. cereus in cookedrice. Inoculated cooked-rice samples were stored at 15, 25, 35 and 45 °C for the growth and toxin production of B. cereus, while inoculated samples (with/without 2-day storage at 35 °C) were treated at 80, 90 and 100 °C for inactivation and toxin destruc…
