The method is used for the enumeration of thermophilic spore-forming bacteria in refined sugar products (General Subjects 2 and 3) [1,2,3]. With higher colony counts and dark-coloured products use the pour plate method (see also Method GS2/3-43). With low levels of microorganisms use the membrane filter method (see also Method GS2/3-41).
