Ultraviolet (UV) technology is proven highly effective at disinfecting food and water, eradicating all harmful contaminants for safe consumption. UV light is an approved sterilization method by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), utilized widely in the food and restaurant industry. UV exposure at the proper wavelength is highly effective and proven safe for removing all bacteria and viruses.
UVC light in the range of 200 nanometer (nm) to 280nm is highly effective at inactivating viruses, while UV radiation at 254nm is the most effective for removing microbial organisms in food and water. UV germicidal lamps are commonly used to ensure the health of patrons visiting dinner buffets or delis, where you will see UV lights protecting the food below.
UVC germicidal lamps are used to protect food and water, ensuring that the vegetables washed in or coming in contact with water is also clean and safe. UVC light is approved by the FDA to be effective with all food products, including sea foods, meats and all cooking surfaces.
