In hot times, like the one we live in, it is easier to break the cold chain in foods that are to be stored in refrigerators. In addition, infections such as Escherichia coli, salmonella and other pathogens, which may be present in fruits, meats, shellfish and other foods consumed by the public, are easier to proliferate.
For that reason, using the strength and effectiveness of an ozone generator is always the winning option. Thus, greater profitability is achieved with a system that surpasses any chemical that leaves residues on its surface. It is safer, faster, more profitable … something that will undoubtedly help improve the results of any crop, as well as product quality and company growth, thanks to ozone generator technology.
And an ozone generator can intervene in all phases of processing. From freezing to cooling, through food safety and packaging technologies.
Use ozone for food processing
Ozone is a powerful oxidizing agent that also meets organic standards. Hence, it will improve productivity in an agricultural project, achieving products with a fresh flavor and healthy appearance.
The demand for high quality products that are conveniently packaged is increasing. This is true for both consumer and food service markets. The challenge is how to get there, in the most profitable and sustainable way possible. This increases the shelf life and appearance of the product by changing the way pre-cut products are processed. The answer is in ozone generators. The washing and disinfection with ozone surpasses the traditional methods that leave chemical residues, and end up leaving an unpleasant smell and taste.
Ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms, being a highly effective disinfectant. As an oxidizing agent, ozone is one and a half times more potent than chlorine and 3000 times more reactive.
Ozone is a safe and vigorous disinfectant and oxidant, therefore, it is used to control the growth of unwanted organisms in equipment used in food processing industries. Ozone does not act as a systemic poison for microorganisms, but destroys them through the oxidation process, for that reason, it is impossible for a microorganism to develop resistance to oxidation.
The ozone equipment installed by GreenBioZone will allow the production of ozonated water for washing the product, reducing, in addition, the consumption of water in general, fighting mold and bacteriological elimination, and minimizing the loss of product, while increasing the useful life.
