WHAT DOES FOOD IRRADIATION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

food irradiation

Food irradiation

Food irradiation is the process of exposing foodstuffs to a source of energy capable of stripping electrons from individual atoms in the targeted material. The radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or generated electrically. This treatment is used to preserve food, reduce the risk of food borne illness, prevent the spread of invasive pests, delay or eliminate sprouting or ripening, increase juice yield, and improve re-hydration. It is permitted by over 50 countries, with 500,000 metric tons of foodstuffs annually processed worldwide. Food irradiation is criticized because of the potential for irradiation to initiate chemical changes that will be different from the chemical changes due to heating food, and the potential danger of these substances. Research has discovered that all but one family of products are produced when heating food, the unique products are non toxic, and the non-unique products occur in lower or comparable frequency to heating food. Others criticize irradiation because of confusion with radioactive contamination or because negative impressions of the nuclear industry.
