Application of Ozone in Food Processing Operations

  title={Application of Ozone in Food Processing Operations},
  author={Brian Hampson and Steven R. Fiori},
The potential utility of ozone in food processing lies in the fact that ozone is a 52% stronger oxidant than chlorine. The widespread use of chlorine by the US food industry is under scrutiny and the acceptance of chlorine as the primary sanitizing agent for food process operations is being reconsidered by many processors and regulators. By US law, ozone is classified as a food additive thus its use in or on food is regulated. This classification disallows for ozone's use as a direct contact…

Accepted: 10/08/2014 Abstract The use of ozone in the processing of foods has rec ently come to the forefront as an anti-microbial agent for food treat ment, storage and processing. Ozone is now
Ozone based food preservation: a promising green technology for enhanced food safety
ABSTRACT Extending shelf life of food products is a major concern of the producers, and the food industry requires ‘greener’ alternatives to the current technologies. Ozone-based food preservation
Ozone Treatment in Prolongation of Shelf Life of Temperate and Tropical Fruits
In recent years, increasing attention has been focused on the safety of fruits and vegetables, andin particular on the intervention methods to reduce and eliminate human pathogens from fresh produce.
Study on Ozone Treatment for Vegetables
Ozone or trioxygen, is a triatomic molecule , consisting of three oxygen atoms . It is much less stable than the diatomic oxygen (O 2 ). Ozone is one of the more powerful oxidants that quickly

The reaction products of ozone that form during the oxidation of compounds found in aqueous media are reviewed and more research is required before a valid assessment of the risks of ozone by-products can be made.
Food-Safety Policy: Balancing Risk and Costs
The United States is often said to have the safest food supply in the world, yet some consumers and policymakers counter that it is still not safe enough. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)
Compendium of methods for the microbiological examination of foods
Sirloin butts from beef carcasses chilled to I or 7.2 C were vacuum packaged and stored at either 0 or S.S C for intervals of 7, 14 , 21 , 28 , or 35 days . Following storage, steaks were obtained
Effects of ozone, chlorine dioxide, chlorine, and monochloramine on Cryptosporidium parvum oocyst viability
The data indicate that C. parvum oocysts are 30 times moreresistant to ozone and 14 times more resistant to chlorine dioxide than Giardia cysts exposed to these disinfectants under the same conditions.
Efficacy of ozonated water against various food-related microorganisms
The antimicrobial effects of ozonated water in a recirculating concurrent reactor were evaluated against four gram-positive and four gram-negative bacteria, two yeasts, and spores of Aspergillus
Comparative inactivation of poliovirus type 3 and MS2 coliphage in demand-free phosphate buffer by using ozone
It was concluded that the use of MS2 coliphage as a surrogate organism for studies of enteric virus with ozone disinfection systems overestimated the inactivation ofEnteric viruses.
