    Food irradiation is used primarily as a preservation method, but it also has potential as a more general unit operation to produce specific changes in food materials. Microwave energy, on the other hand, has been employed especially to produce rapid and unique heating effects, one application of which can be food by: 6.   Food-associated diarrheal disease is a major problem in the United States. One approach offered as virtually a panacea is food irradiation. Irradiating our food would have some unequivocal benefits, but there are some important unresolved issues that must be addressed before we commit our society to a technology that could be by: 4.

    Food irradiation is a process in which approved foods are exposed to radiant energy, including gamma rays, electron beams, and x-rays. In , the Food and Drug Administration found the irradiation of food to be safe. Irradiation of meat and poultry is done in a government-approved irradiation facility. June Irradiation, carried out under conditions of Good Manufacturing Practice, is an effective, widely applicable food processing method judged to be safe on extensive available evidence, that can reduce the risk of food poisoning, control food spoilage and extend the shelf-life of foods without detriment to health and with minimal effect on nutritional or sensory quality.

Food irradiation is defined by the International Atomic Energy Agency as a process involving the exposure of food, either prepackaged or in bulk, to γ-rays, X-rays, or electrons in a special room and for a specific duration. It is a method of food preservation essentially comparable to.

Food irradiation (the application of ionizing radiation to food) is a technology that improves the safety and extends the shelf life of foods by reducing or eliminating microorganisms and insects.

This updated second edition of Food Irradiation Research and Technology reviews the latest developments in irradiation technologies as they are applied to meat, seafood fish, fruits, vegetables and nuts. Experts from industry, government, and academia define the basic principles and public health benefits of irradiation.

In the FDA approved the use of low-dose ionizing radiation to eliminate pathogens in red meat. This food processing technology can improve the safety of food and extend the shelf life of certain foods by eliminating pathogenic bacteria, parasites, and other microorganisms that cause food-borne disease.

Currently, forty-two countries practice some form of food irradiation. COVID Resources.

Food preservation by irradiation is gaining recognition as a technology that is more environmentally benign than other current processes such as post-harvest chemical fumigation, it has less impact on thermally sensitive compounds than thermal decontamination technologies such as hot water or steam, and the technology is more accessible and cheaper.
