Industry, Government lab, and University experts will discuss the non-thermal disinfection of juice, milk, and tea, as well as the use of UV for process preparation and product packaging solutions at at special session on UV+EB for Food Safety, taking place Monday, May 7, 2018 at the RadTech UV+EB 2018 Conference in Chicago, IL. UV is a proven technology, offering an economically-sound, effective, and versatile dry-process technology, that improves plant and consumer safety and offers the further preservation of different foods as well as extended shelf life. This session, sponsored by the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), presents the latest updates on the science based validation and commercialization of UV technology for food applications from seed to stomach.
This first of its kind session includes topics related to: Global regulations related to UV for food safety; validation of shelf life extension; and a user’s perspective of UV treatment of beverages. In addition, with the rapid emergence of LEDs, the symposium will address the use of UV LEDs for indoor crop growth simulation, pathogen inactivation, and spoilage reduction; and will conclude the event with a UV treated cold pressed juice tasting. RadTech 2018 features over 100 presentations and 80 exhibitors, for more information and to register, visit http://www.radtech2018.com.
