What approach do you use to go grocery shopping? Do you make a weekly menu plan and an ingredient list, then head to the store solely for those items? Do you scour the classified ads for the best offer before creating a menu around it? Perhaps you’ll go for a walk along the aisles until something strikes your eye.
You want cuisine that not only tastes delicious but is also safe to eat, whether you’re a Sunday dinner fanatic, a vegetarian, or a skilled sous-chef. Food safety is a serious worry for everyone, especially as the number of large food recalls has increased in recent years. While some recalls may be necessary to be extra cautious, today’s consumers expect greater standards of food safety.
Concerns about food safety and the risk of foodborne illness are prompting food manufacturers to respond. Many are turning to modern technologies to meet stringent safety, quality, and preservation requirements. High-pressure procedures, ultrasonic equipment, pulsed electric fields, ultraviolet light, and ionizing radiation are all used in these devices. These technologies can eliminate viruses and other diseases while also prolonging the shelf life of items without the use of preservatives. See the included links for further information on these important technologies.
