Irradiation and the ‘Ick Factor’ Large-scale food irradiation probably makes sense as a safety precaution, but it’s not likely to happen. By Mark Bittman. It is well recognised that irradiation can destroy bacteria and other micro-organisms in food – depending upon the dose. This processing / preservation method is controversial with many in the public being strongly against it. It is however the preferred method for preservation in some specific food types due to the nature of those foods.

Arvanitoyannis Journals - El Sevier, Journal of Food Quality, Trends in Food Science and Technology. Irradiation involves subjecting certain foods (primarily spices, some fruits, and a limited amount of meats) to intense doses of ionizing radiation in the form of gamma rays, X-rays, or electron beams before sending them to market. Considered a food-safety intervention since , when it was approved to control insects in wheat and flour, irradiation kills or deactivates .

Food irradiation improves food safety and maintains food quality by controlling microorganisms and extending shelf life. However, acceptance and. Food irradiation has been recognized as a reliable and safe method for the preservation of food and for improving the hygienic quality and nutritional value of food.
In addition to the control of microorganisms of numerous food commodities, ionizing irradiation can be used to reduce several carcinogenic agents and antinutritional factors, such. Trends towards more specific food safety and control systems also need to be addressed, especially of machine generated irradiation technologies to provide effective means to ensure food quality, and minimize losses and waste without relying on radionuclide sources, while addressing consumer concerns related to the use of ionizing radiation.
About this book. The benefits of food irradiation to the public health have been described extensively by organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA and the World Health Organization.
The American Medical Association and the American Dietetic Association have both endorsed the irradiation process.
Food irradiation is the process of exposing food and food packaging to ionizing ng radiation, such as from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams, is energy that can be transmitted without direct contact to the source of the energy capable of freeing electrons from their atomic bonds in the targeted radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or.
Food irradiation is a widely studied food processing technology. The FDA has approved irradiation for beef, pork, lamb and poultry, fruits and vegetables, grains, and spices –. Food irradiation is the treatment of food with a type of radiation energy known as ionizing radiation.
Ionizing radiation may be used for various reasons depending on the food: it may be used to kill microorganisms that can cause human illness or cause food to spoil; to control insect or parasite infestation; or to slow the ripening or sprouting of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Food irradiation—a food safety, food preservation or quarantine measure used in more than 50 countries—is a process in which food is exposed to a source of ionizing energy.
