Ultraviolet juice treatment

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE USDA has approved the use of South African technology that uses ultraviolet light to treat fruit juice, reported. SurePure, the company behind the technology, said: "[It] is an approved technology alternative to pasteurisation to remove, reduce or inactivate pathogenic organisms that might prove harmful to humans if ingested. Major benefits for manufacturers utilising photo-purification technology include less chemical intervention with complete food safety resulting in a healthier, tastier, safe juice." The story reported that the technology was already used in wine, sugar syrup and milk treatment.
