Since the FDA’s approval of ozone as an anti-microbial agent in 2001, ozone sanitation systems have been widely accepted as an effective means to improve food safety and quality.
Ozone treatments have the benefit of forming fewer undesirable by-products than chlorine treatments, such as trihalomethane, chloroform, and other dangerous compounds. Ozone is faster acting than chlorine, steam, or hot water and allows for superior disinfection of microbes (including mold, bacteria, viruses, and cysts).
According to Kevin T. Higgins article from Food Processing Magazine, “Is Ozone the Next Sanitation Superstar“, more food industry manufacturers agree that as the efficacy and cost advantages of ozone become more widely understood, the technology’s role in plant hygiene will grow.
