Treatment

Spice Chain understands the need for microbiologically safe products, when it comes to mitigating the risk of food borne illness. Together with partners in industry, Spice Chain offers a number of treatment methods to reduce microbiological counts.

All treatments processes are FDA approved and validated annually by a third party.

Ethylene Oxide & Propylene Oxide – A treatment using a fumigant gas to ensure the elimination of harmful pathogens like E-Coli and Salmonella and offer acceptable microbiological reduction for food products.

These treatments are recommended by the American Spice Trade Association (ASTA).

Steam Treatment – The most natural of treatments used in organic processing and in applications where natural labelling is a must. The use of dry steam to heat the product to temperatures and hold times that ensure microbiological reduction is the basis of this treatment process.

Irradiation – Treatment using gamma irradiation to ensure a 5-log reduction in microbiological growth. The most effective form of treatment in reducing risk.
