Fruit and Vegetable Processing

Fresh cut fruits and vegetables are critical foods necessary to maintain healthy diets. Their freshness, safe harvest, processing, and transit from field to the dinner table is boosted by having a chlorine-free microbial control agent to reduce pathogenic bacteria, decay and spoilage organisms. The same chemistry can be used as a sanitizer and disinfectant on hard surfaces and processing equipment to address pathogens of concern such as Staphyloccus, E.coli, Salmonella, and Listeria. The chemistry may also be used for treatment of agricultural and irrigation water systems to control sulfides, odor, slime and algae in sand filters, humidification systems, storage tanks, ponds, reservoirs, canals.

 

Evonik's EPA-registered peracetic acid products are formulated for superior stability and performance in the processing of fruits and vegetables from the sanitization of harvesting equipment to the treatment of processing waters for post-harvest vegetables. Our versatile products are environmentally friendly, organic approved and always accompanied by PeroxyChem’s technical expertise in fruit and vegetable processing chemistries.
