In 2001, the FDA recognized the use of ozone in the food industry as Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) in gaseous and aqueous phases as an antimicrobial agent on food, including meat and Poultry. It is the only disinfectant capable of a 3-log reduction or greater which is approved to be applied directly on food. Ozone kills bacteria and other pathogens on contact which makes food safer and stay fresher for longer.
Ozone gas is created by exposing oxygen to an electrical charge. Ozone infused water is produced by suspending Ozone gas in water. For more information about ozone infused water generators, click here.
