Food Processing

Ozone technology is beginning to be used effectively in the food processing industry because of the numerous advantages it offers over traditional methods of disinfection and preservation. Ozone is an organic-compliant powerful oxidizing agent and disinfectant that can be used to control biological growth of unwanted organisms in products and equipment used in the food processing industries

Why Ozone in Food Processing Industry?

Ozone is particularly suited to the food industry because of its ability to disinfect microorganisms without adding chemical by-products to the food being treated, or to the food processing water or atmosphere in which food are stored. A recent development in the food industry is ionizing the gases inside sealed food packages to create ozone that kills bacterial pathogens

A simple system incorporating CECON ozone generator can produce ozonated water. Utilizing ozone technology for your business can be a better, safer, faster and more cost-effective solution

Ozone is Approved for Use with Food

The USDA (U.S Department of Agriculture) and FDA (U.S Food and Drug Administration) have approved ozone as an antimicrobial agent for use with food processing. Ozone has been given GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) approval by the USDA and the FDA for direct contact with food products, including all meat and poultry products. With regulatory approval, ozone has become a great option for cost-effectively disinfecting food

Advantages of Ozone in Food Processing

  • It is a non-chemical alternative for treating water and sanitizing food contact surfaces
  • It is a non-thermal way to control pathogens and microbes in food processing
  • It is environment friendly and leaves no residues in food or water
  • It significantly improves the shelf life of meat and organic products
  • It is faster and better at killing microbes than chlorine
  • It can be generated onsite, so no storage is required

Ozone Applications for Food and Food Processing

  • Chemical-free sanitizing of food-contact surfaces, including conveyors
  • Meat and Poultry Production, Processing & Preservation
  • Disinfection and Preservation of Fruits and Vegetables
  • For Sanitizing Packaging and Container material
  • Sea Food Processing and Preservation
  • Sanitizing water to make ice
  • Deodorizing air and water
