Biotechnology extends the shelf life of food !
In food and beverage industries, companies can never escape from non-conforming production batches. Food quality is very closely linked to hygiene of the production tools which can affect the bacteriological level of a product.
CONTROL THE QUALITY OF YOUR FINISHED PRODUCTS AND INCREASE THEIR SHELF LIFE
At each stage of production, the quality of food products can be deteriorated by production tools with which these products are in contact. An effective management of the hygiene of production installations is therefore paramount to keep total control of the bacteriological state of those installations and guarantee optimal shelf life of food products.
Enzymatic range combined for an optimum level of hygiene and by extension, shelf life
Nevertheless, it is possible to detect contaminated areas associated with a biofilm on open surfaces and in closed circuits. While conventional methods do not enable any detection of biofilms, Realco/Realzyme has developed and patented a method to show the presence of a biofilm: the Biofilm Detection Kit.
To combat biofilms,Realco/Realzyme has developed a range of products made up of a specific cocktail of enzymes: the BIOREM range. This enzyme-based detergent will optimally clean and prepare the surfaces for application of a disinfectant/sanitizer (biocide). The bacteria/micro-organisms will then be killed during the disinfection stage of the biofilm treatment process. As a result, the combination of our cleaning solution with an EPA-registered sanitizer will fully remove a biofilm contamination and ensure optimum hygiene of production installations.
As a compliment to biofilm treatment, enzymatic detergent solutions clean in-depth and eliminate stubborn residues not controlled by conventional cleaning. This increased cleaning performance slows down the reappearance of the biofilm and allows preventative treatment action against the biofilm to be spaced out.
Increase shelf life of products due to an optimum level of hygiene
This combined enzymatic program allows irreproachable quality standards to be reached and for a level of hygiene to be reached which cannot be achieved with conventional cleaning solutions, thus increasing shelf life (see graph A) and quality (food safety) of finished products (see graph B).
This range represents numerous advantages for food and beverage production companies:
- Restoring or extending the shelf life of products
- Avoiding the destruction of non-conforming batches
- Maintaining performance of the tools of production
- Increasing productivity
- Providing industrial companies with non-corrosive hygiene solutions
- Keeping a good brand image
