Pure Bioscience announces partnership for new antimicrobial treatment on cut produce

Pure Bioscience, creator of the patented non-toxic silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial and SmartWash Solutions, has announced a partnership for an antimicrobial pre-treatment on cut produce.

SmartWash Boost, the new combined application of PURE Control with SmartWash, takes produce food safety to a new level: 99.8 percent lethality. This food safety innovation is the result of more than three years of SmartWash Solutions testing and validating the combination of the two intervention steps. Results consistently demonstrated superior incremental pathogen reduction and risk management. It provides superior removal of microbial contaminants, reducing the potential for outbreaks and recalls before they happen.

“SmartWash Solutions has been at the forefront of technological advances in the food processing industry — combining science, engineering and technology to increase efficiency and improve food safety,” said Jim Brennan, President, SmartWash Solutions. “The enhanced performance of the combined application of Pure Control and SmartWash antimicrobials assures consistent superior pathogen reduction and therefore risk mitigation. This is the most advanced risk management approach for prepared packaged salads.”
