Ultraviolet

Ultraviolet (UV) application is a nonthermal technology currently being tested on food products. A wavelength of 220-300 nm has been found to be germicidal against a number of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, protozoa, molds, yeasts, and algae. In this process the penetration effect of UV-C radiation depends on the type of liquid, its UV-C absorptivity, soluble solids in the liquid, and suspended matter.
