ABSTRACT
It is important for consumers that the disinfectants used in the food processing industry should ensure the quality and microbiological safety of food. It is also important that they should not endanger their health through toxic intermediate products. Consequently, a growth of interest has been observed in alternative disinfectants, including ozone. An ozone molecule, owing to split of the third atom of oxygen, is a strong oxidant and an effective agent in destroying microorganisms. It is used for disinfecting waste and drinking water as well as throughout the food processing industry. Ozone is used for disinfecting equipment, production areas and in the food industry.
