The Canadian food safety specialist has developed an organic solution that eradicates 99.9% of harmful pathogens during the milling process without impacting the flour’s nutritional, sensory and functional characteristics.
A new joint project between DuPont Qualicon and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) aims to develop testing to detect hard-to-identify strains of E.coli that are not regulated and have been causing increasing instances of food contamination.
Pieces of metal may have fallen into sweet treats in the UK
and E. coli is suspected in pizza and beef patties
in the US, reminding snack manufacturers that both physical and
pathogen contaminants can lead to costly recalls.
