Antibiotics act as growth promoters but can contribute to an increased human exposure to antibiotics, development of pathogens with antibiotic-resistance and increased allergies due to its presence in foods. In fact, the presence of residual antibiotics in foods constitutes an important health risk because the increased microbial resistance detected in latest years. In addition, the presence of residual amounts of antibiotics produces important difficulties to food processors for the extent and control of food fermentation.

Key words: Antibiotic resistance, Food processing, Growth promoters, Residual antibiotics.
