Contamination by bacteria of dehydrated foods, spices, herbs or raw material represents a significant health problem, both in Mexico and in other countries, so that health authorities have implemented technical standards that require reducing or even eliminating harmful bacteria . Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria and Campylobacter are some of the most dangerous bacteria. Irradiation treatment can eliminate such bacteria and, unlike chemical pesticides and fumigants, does not cause loss of oils or changes in odor or taste of the products.
This treatment is already used in Mexico, mainly in dehydrated products for export to the United States of America, and is approved by the Ministry of Health for domestic consumer products. BENEBION offers a service of reduction of microbiological load or debacterization of products by the application of irradiation, both in bulk and in final presentations, as in packages or bags. The United States also approves this treatment through the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Contact us for more information.
