yes , boiling kill almost of botulinum toxin

Botulism is a type of food poisoning. What causes it is the bacteria living on our food that produce toxins that can kill humans.

Yes active botulism can kill.

Botulism is a paralytic disease, caused by the colonization of bacteria called chlostridium botulinum, and is very rare. Symptoms start with paralysis of facial muscles, and can lead to respiratory failure in extreme cases. Like most food poisoning it cannot be detected in in numbers likely to cause food poisoning. Ordinary cooking will kill it, and sterilization at 121° will kill spores.

By freezing or boiling it.

Clostridium Botulinum - This is the most dangerous of all the bacteria. About 200 grams of the toxin would be enough to kill the entire population of the world.It grows where there is no oxygen and a low quantity of acid and can be found on badly canned food. In such conditions the bacteria produce toxin which, if eaten, gives you a food poisoning called botulism. When food is canned, it is heated to temperatures that destroy the bacteria. Botulism is extremely rare, but you should avoid cans which are damaged in any way. The toxin from it can be very fatal.

Food is cooked to kill bacteria as it is canned; the cans then keep out any new bacteria.

When canning, the pH does not kill botulism. Rather, a pH less than 4.6 is needed to prevent botulism from growing. If you are canning foods with a pH at or over 4.6, a pressure canner is needed to completely kill botulism.

Low pH foods tend to taste sour. High pH foods taste bitter. Low pH foods can be canned using either boiling water baths or pressure canning. Sufficient acidity (low pH) can prevent botulism spores from germinating. High pH foods require pressure canning (which reaches higher temperatures) in order to kill any botulism spores.

Yes. Botulism bacteria can grow and is more likely to do so in a sealed container. Boiling for 10 minutes or freezing will kill the botulism bacteria but not the spores. You can't depend on odor or flavor either: four strains of the botulism bacteria are odorless. It's not worth the chance.

Probably not. Antibiotics work to kill off bacteria. Botulism is caused by neurotoxins formed by Clostridium botulinum. The bacteria might not even be alive when the disease hits.You get botulism from a toxin produced by bacteriaAlso - it can enter the body through a wound contaminated by the organism and the organism needn't be present if the toxin has already been produced. Infants may get it from eating unpasteurised honey but most botulism occurs after eating improperly canned or cooked foods.

Normally, you do not get botulism poisoning from eating raw plants from the garden. You get it from eating prepared food that has not been refrigerated. At one time it was common at church picnics. Potato Salad made with mayonnaise would sit out in the sun while the congregation worshipped in church. During that time the botulism bacteria would reproduce and produce their toxin. After several hours the people would come out to the picnic. They would eat poison potato salad. Again. With commercially canned food, the food would be cooked in large kettles. It would be placed in cans and sealed while the temperature was above 180 degrees Fahrenheit 80C. Home canning frequently lets the temperature get low enough for botulism to live in a home canned product. With botulism, after the bacteria are killed, the poison remains. So, if you suspect that some food might have the botulism bacteria, you must throw it out. Reheating it will only kill the bacteria. It will not remove the poison. You must throw it out.

Well, you can. Boiling or cooking the food will kill the weevils. If boiling, the weevils will go out with the liquid when you are draining the food. Most people would not want to eat bugs, though.

Yes, boiling does denature (kill) yeast.

Decomposition is caused by bacteria. The process of canning involves heating the product to kill the bacteria and then sealing it up in a sterile state. Some bacteria, such as botulism, can grow without air so if the canning is not done properly the food can spoil, sometimes not in a way you would notice immediately.

By use I believe you mean eat. Canned food may still be safe to eat after the expiration date IF the can has no damage to it and has no signs of bloating. Any dents deformities or damage to a can may allow it to grow botulism. This a deadly food born pathogen THAT CAN KILL YOU!Most expiration dates on unrefrigerated, non temperature sensitive items like dried pasta are there because it loses flavor or the preservatives lose effectiveness and they clump or lose color.

nope. the alcohol in the beer would kill it.

food poisoning,cant always be removed but to help reduce it you can heat the food in boiling water.this will kill all the bacteria

Yes, boiling water will kill a plant.

Since temperature is one requirement fo grow,then extreem temperatures can be used to kill bacteria on the food depending on the type of bacteria and it's optimal temperature. So by boiling/heating of food.

No, it is not right to kill a silkworm when it is in its cocoon by boiling it. That would be cruel to kill an animal like that.

Boiling water does kill spores. This is because spores are like tiny plants in storage so the boiling water harms them.

Yes, but you must ensure that the heat penetrates the whole of the food. It can take some time for the centre of a piece of food to get hot.

Enzymes are not alive, so they cannot be killed. Typically though, bringing an enzyme to a boiling temperature is enough to denature it. There's no evidence though that denatured enzymes in food at all affects the nutritional effects of the food.

kills bacteria and doesnt kill plants and animals

Yes it does kill the bacteria
