OZONE FOR FOOD SAFETY AND SANITATION
The food industry has strict quality controls and standards to satisfy consumers and comply with regulations. All sanitation systems are designed to maintain safety and microbial control. But not everyone can offer a highly efficient, safe, environmentally friendly, low maintenance, and low-cost disinfection system. Ozone for food safety and sanitation can!
It isn’t easy to understand why food processing applications still widely use chlorine as a commercial disinfectant agent. The list of chlorine drawbacks is enormous. Chloride is inefficient; It has a limited effect on its ability to kill common food bacteria and cannot reduce levels of organic compounds. Chloride is unsafe or environmentally friendly; Chloride is risky due to the by-product formation/accumulation and the negative impact of chlorine in discharged water. Chlorine is not an economical solution; it has a high cost in the excessive use of chemicals and indirect expenses related to handling and storage. In addition, it leaves residues that can change food properties, affect the quality, and a significant amount of water needed for the rinse stages.
Ozone food safety and Sanitation are ideal substitutes for chlorine. In fact, it is more effective than chlorine against microorganisms. Ozone Treatment can also destroy chlorine by-products, pesticides, and toxic organic compounds in process water without leaving dangerous residue. Moreover, Ozone is safe; The USDA and FDA approved using ozone for direct contact with food products, and it is recognized as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). Also, Ozone is economic; It has a lower running cost and low maintenance. We have Absolute Ozone® Generators in the field, working without maintenance, service, or spare parts for over 17 years. Finally, Ozone reverts to oxygen, leaving no harmful chemical residuals or altering the taste of treated food.
The Benefits of Using Ozone for Sanitization
Ozone (O3) has become an increasingly popular choice for sanitizing in the food industry. Ozone is used to disinfect food contact surfaces and processing equipment as it is a safe and eco-friendly alternative to traditional chemical disinfectants. Unlike other disinfectants, gaseous Ozone breaks into oxygen within a few minutes after use, leaving no toxic residue or harmful by-products. In addition to being safe, Ozone is also highly effective. Its strong oxidizing effect can eliminate even the most resistant pathogens, making it ideal for food applications.
Ozone is recognized as a safe and effective alternative to traditional chemical sanitizers such as chlorine, iodine, and ammonium compounds. Using Ozone for sanitization can help food processors comply with regulations for food safety and Sanitation. It can help to ensure that food processing equipment and surfaces are free from harmful microorganisms that can cause foodborne illness. Ozone can also help to extend the shelf life of fresh produce by inhibiting the growth of mold and other microorganisms, reducing food waste, and improving overall food safety.
