Modality to reduce pathogens in food ingredients
Radiation-based gamma processing kills microorganisms through a non-invasive process that penetrates several types of packaging, which means the food ingredients are not removed from their packaging. The process is safe. There are no residuals left on the products, which makes gamma irradiation ideal for pathogen reduction in food ingredients.
