Pesticide reduction

Pesticide reduction

Ozone is a powerful oxidant that destroys mycotoxins and pesticides.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has formally approved the use of Ozone as an antimicrobial agent for the processing, storage and manufacture of ingredients in aqueous or gaseous form.
This approval was published on June 26, 2001 (FDA, 2001).

Mycotoxins are toxic substances produced by the secondary metabolism of certain mould species, growing on foodstuffs (cereals, dried fruit, etc.) before/during harvest, or during storage.

Different types of mycotoxins are produced by different moulds:
Numerous pathogenic effects depending on the substance: hepatotoxic, genotoxic, neurotoxic, mutagenic, teratogenic, carcinogenic, immunosuppressive…
Ozosteril is a continuous process for the reduction of mycotoxins in dry and divided foodstuffs via ozone (O3) treatment. Its design is based on the unique, patented combination of a vibrating conveyor and an Ozone generator.
Ozosteril achieves high performance in mycotoxin load reduction, while maintaining the organoleptic properties of the products. Taste, color and moisture are preserved, as this is a cold process (no heat, gas or irradiation is used).
