Is food DNA co-purified using the QIAsymphony mericon Bacteria Kit?

Processed foods always contain high concentrations of DNA that has been liberated during industrial processing. In principle, this is co-purified during the QIAsymphony mericon Bacteria Kit protocol. However, in a sufficiently grown enrichment culture, the amount of free food DNA is negligible compared to the concentration of enriched bacteria.
