The Issue

When you’re processing food, brewing beer, or making wine, facility hygiene and sanitation is of the utmost importance. Bacteria such as E. coli, Salmonella or Listeria can be transferred between foods or to food from surfaces, creating the possibility of foodborne illness. Beer can be spoiled or contaminated, causing odors or sour tastes that can ruin an entire batch. In wine-making, spoilage bacteria can also create bad flavors or smells unintended by the vintner.

    6 reasons why food processors must use chlorine dioxide

    ClO₂ is strong enough to be an EPA-approved and efficacy-tested hospital disinfectant, yet mild enough to be an FDA-approved food contact substance. Pure chlorine dioxide can also be successful in destroying and preventing biofilm, which is one of the biggest challenges for food processors in destroying harmful bacteria. In addition to these spectacular disinfecting qualities, ClO₂ has a mild odor when used and is less corrosive than bleach.
