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.
Techniques such as high-pressure processing, pulsed electric
fields, radio-frequency electric fields, ultraviolet light, and
irradiation have been shown to be faster and less disruptive to
quality than traditional thermal processing...
Scientists are developing a hand-held sensor they say will help
save lives by quickly pinpointing the presence of a deadly E. coli
strain and other harmful germs in food and drinks, in some cases
