Radiology Fact of the Month
AHEC
Food irradiation (the application of ionizing radiation to food) ) is a technology that improves the safety and extends the shelf life of foods by reducing or eliminating microorganisms and insects. Like pasteurizing milk and canning fruits and vegetables, irradiation can make food safer for the consumer. Food must be labeled with a logo indicating irradiation. The FDA has approved meat and poultry, shell eggs, fruits and vegetables, herbs, sources, and flour. Currently since most of these foods are not grown commercially, only ground meat, spices, and some fruits such as papaya are using this technology. Irradiation can change the flavor, odor, texture color and nutritional content of food. Eggs that are irradiated are more watery and have less color and brightness. It also destroys the niacin and vitamins in the eggs.
