What causes food to decay?
Food will decay if bacteria or fungi is on the food because fungi and bacteria are living organisms so they eat at the flesh of the food which cause the fungi to spread or cause the bacteria to multiply which eventually will cause the food to eventually be 100% decomposed.

Bacterial activity. Any un-preserved or uncooked foods are vulnerable to food decay. Bacteria find the food, release enzymes on to the food and then digest the enzymes.tak…ing part of the food away. Remember bacteria need certain living conditions. . Moisture . Non acidic or alkali conditions . Food . Oxygen So methods live salting and sugaring can absorb moisture, killing bacteria. Along with freezing. Pickling can create acidic and alkali conditions, killing bacteria. I am a year 8 who is putting his biological skills to test. I hope you found this useful. yo yo yo
\nFood decays and rots due to the growth of organisms that develop over time. These organisms feed on the food item, causing it to decay and become unfit for human consumption….
decay is caused when detritvores break up dead animals or plants and increase the surface area. microorgasims then complete the process of decay.
Its when Microbes(bacteria and fungi) grow on food causing it to decay and rot.They will multiply while on the food.
Microbes grow on and in food causing it to decay or rot. Microbes will increase in numbers as they destroy the food. They are almost everywhere and on almost everything you ca…n think of. They are in the air, the water, the soil, your food, your clothes, and on your hands. Basically, all the methods of foods preservation or eliminate or decayby either slowing down the growth of the microbes or eliminating the microbes.
It slows the reaction rate down, slowing the decay, and slowing the dispersion from infection sites through the foodstuff.
sweet sugary foods .
Fungi break their food down into substances that they can absorb When they do so they cause food to decay This process is called?
Decaying and Making it posion
Most foods with high sugar or acidic concentrations
In Cats (Felines)
Of course. Imagine yourself eating a piece of stale food or something. Cats shouldn't - by rights - eat decying food unless they are starving. Dry food goes stale quickly - no…t just in the bowl (be sure to change the food every day) but in the packaging, too. Bacteria can grow and multiply in the kibble which can - and has - cause serious health issues to cats. If it's a well fed and healthy cat, it should turn it's nose up at the decaying and stale food. Be sure that your cat gets fresh food; don't risk your cat getting ill! I had just bought some dry food last week and I lost my older cat of 19 a few days after I had opened the food and I am now noticing my other cat who is 5 doing the same thing as my 19 yr old did before he died. I have since stopped giving him the food and have already noticed a improvement in his health.
In Food Spoilage
It doesn't necessarily smell bad. To a fly, it smells great! To most animals, humans included, it smells bad because it would make us very ill if we ate it. Therefore, nature …has provided us with the survival instinct of finding it very unpleasant so that we avoid eating it. Answer 2 Bad smeell indicates decomposition by bacteria and fungi which releases gases like H 2 S
In Food & Cooking
When food decides it doesn't like you anymore, so it goes bad.
In Food & Cooking
sugar is the best answer
In Mycology or Fungi
its the hyperinflation of two atoms connecting to form a decayed molecule. This process is called geremonial condenation. Hope this helps!
