Ecolab PAA Sanitizer Study

Peracetic Acid and Hydrogen Peroxide Post-dip Decay Kinetics on Red Meat and Poultry

Peracetic acid (PAA) is a widely used antimicrobial in the food and protein industries, and Ecolab led the charge to study post-application decay of PAA. The findings were published in "Food Protection Trends."

The research shows that Inspexx™ can be used as a processing aid in meat and poultry operations at up to 2,000 ppm with no long-term residues. PAA and hydrogen peroxide rapidly decays below the limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantitation (LOQ) levels within 30 minutes of immersion exposure. Ultimately, PAA and peroxide residuals on finished meat products have no functional effect and would be negligible at time of retail sale or consumption.
