Alicyclobacillus spp. is an important thermoacidophilic, spore-forming spoilage bacterium that is a major concern for beverage and juice industries. In order to develop effective control strategies and adequately address the prevalence of contamination sources, it is necessary to characterize Alicyclobacillus' ecology in fruit, juice and beverage production and processing environments.
