January 21, 2020

In this episode of The Food Files, Ravi Jadeja, FAPC food safety specialist, discusses his research on determining the suitability of sodium acid sulfate as a produce wash sanitizer. Fresh produce such as fruits and vegetables are high in vitamins and minerals, making them an essential part of the world’s diet. However, foodborne illness related to the consumption of fresh produce is widely reported. Dr. Jadeja's research has shown a novel sanitizer, sodium acid sulfate, could effectively eliminate foodborne pathogens from produce.
