    Review on Radiation as a Means of Food Preservation and its Challenge Girma Kebede, Ashenef Simachew, Haimanot Disassa,Tadele Kabeta and Tilahun Zenebe Wollega University, School of Veterinary Medicine, Nekemte, Ethiopia Abstract: Food irradiation is a process of exposing food to ionizing radiation for the purpose of food safety and preservation. Abstract. Radiation “refers to a physical phenomenon in which energy travels through space or matter” (Radomyski et el. ). Irradiation, as used in food science, is the application of this energy to a specific material, such as food product, with the purpose of increasing storage stability through reduction of microorganisms, elimination of parasites or insects, or blockage of Cited by:

    Cyanobacteria and algae having complex photosynthetic systems can channelize absorbed solar energy into other forms of energy for production of food and metabolites. In addition, they are promising biocatalysts and can be used in the field of “white biotechnology” for enhancing the sustainable production of food, metabolites, and green energy sources such as by: Food irradiation is a form of food processing that can extend shelf life and reduce spoilage. Foods are exposed to radiation to kill insects, moulds and micro-organisms, but no detectable levels of radiation are left behind in the food. It is mandatory for irradiated foods to be labelled in accordance with regulations by FSANZ.

Radiation sterilization, reviews of the literature in selected fields. (Chicago, Radiation Sterilization Project, Quartermaster Food and Container Institute for the Armed Forces, []), by Armed Forces Food and Container Institute (U.S.) (page images at HathiTrust) Ionizing radiations; their production, effects, and utilization.

Similar to other food preservation methods, food irradiation offers advantages and disadvantages relative to the types of food to be treated. It is increasingly recognized as an alternative method to fumigation of food to control insect infestation and microbial contamination, as well as facilitating trade in fresh and dried by: Radiation dose was originally designated as rad, and 1 rad was defined as the quantity of ionizing radiation that results in the absorption of ergs of energy per gram of an irradiated material.

The current unit is gray (Gy), and 1 Gy is equivalent to rad. According to the international health and safety authorities. Food preservation - Food preservation - Food irradiation: Food irradiation involves the use of either high-speed electron beams or high-energy radiation with wavelengths smaller than nanometres, or angstroms (e.g., X-rays and gamma rays).

These rays contain sufficient energy to break chemical bonds and ionize molecules that lie in their path.

The status of food irradiation in the world in was investigated using published data, a questionnaire survey and direct visits.

The results showed that. Application of Radiation Most widely used techniques of irradiating food are gamma radiation from CO60 and Cs Electron beams from linear accelerators 6. RADIATION TREATMENT OF FOOD Radappertization: used in canning industry, kGy.

Radicidation:equivalent to pasteurization of milk,kGy. Radurization:equivalent to. Hence, food research workers constantly seek new and improved preservation methods. In recent years, the use of radiation has shown great promise.

Processing In radiation preservation gamma rays or electron beams destroy the spoilage micro-organisms. Both have similar effects although they differ in the manner in which they penetrate the Cited by: This book describes in detail those new and emerging food preservation techniques that are now, or soon will be, commerically exploited.

The editor, a leading figure in this field, has assembled a team of well-known and respected contributors, who cover chemical, biological and physically based-approaches. Emphasis is placed both on the innovative exploitation of traditional 5/5(2).

The World Health Organization (WHO) designated food irradiation as a perfectly sound food preservation technology that is needed in a world where food borne diseases are on the increase, and where in between 1/4 to 1/3 of the global food supply is lost post-harvest.

Food irradiation is the process of exposing food and food packaging to ionizing ng radiation, such as from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams, is energy that can be transmitted without direct contact to the source of the energy capable of freeing electrons from their atomic bonds in the targeted radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or.

Introduction. Food irradiation is a recognized and established food processing technology worldwide. Decades of research studies proved its safety and resulted to its recognition by national and international experts (Ehlermann, ).In fact, as early asthe Joint Food and Agriculture Organization/ International Atomic Energy Agency/ World Health Organization Cited by: 7.
