Ozone application in Aflatoxin Reduction - destruction: Ozone is approved under GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by US FDA, when used on raw agricultural commodities, since 2001. This use of Ozone is consistent with section 201(q)(1)(B)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act since 2001.
Aflatoxins are resistant against Gamma radiation.
Ozone is an unstable gas with a pungent, characteristic odor. It is producedin situ from oxygen either by ultraviolet irradiation of air or by passinga high voltage discharge through air. It is a potent oxidizing agent thatdecomposes at ambient temperature to molecular oxygen.
Ozone is approximately 3000 times powerful then chlorine in killing bacteria and other microbes. Even at low concentration it has high microbe killing power and Ozone does not leave behind any residues. Ozone destructs mycotoxins like Aflatoxin using Creegie Mechanism.
Aeolus has several installations to reduce Aflatoxins from peanuts andother food grains. Ozone also fumigates the food grain and oil seeds for longterm storage.
Please share your oil seed and food grain processing capacity andprocess details. We can offer you the right solution for removing Aflatoxinsand Mycotoxins from it with our Ozone Generators and their applicationmechanisms.
