Ozone Treats Natural Products Against Microbes
Florida, NY-- May 23, 2004--Pharmline, Inc. a manufacturer of high-quality food supplements, phytochemicals, and fine nutritional chemicals, is pleased to announce the installation of a proprietary ozone sterilization system to treat botanicals and natural products against microbes.
Although some European firms use comparable systems, Pharmline is the first company in the U.S. to develop this system. One of the main advantages of the ozone system is that it offers a cleaner, safer end product than other sterilization systems. Since ozone completely decomposes in about twenty minutes to simple oxygen, it leaves no residue. This makes it a superior disinfectant for natural products. The ozone system is extremely effective against a myriad of microbes, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi. It can also be used to sanitize food storage rooms and packaging materials, which helps control insects during storage and prevents spoilage during shipping.
Ozone, a form of oxygen that is usually associated with smog, or its ability to protect us from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, was approved in 1997 for use in the U.S. food processing industry to sanitize food products. First used to cleanse drinking water in France in 1906, ozone has been used in U.S. water treatment plants since 1940, and to treat bottled water in the U.S. since 1982. Today, approximately 200 municipal water treatment plants use ozone to help cleanse their drinking water. It has evolved as a powerful and safe tool in food safety, and is undisputed in the scientific community as the most effective natural bactericide of all the disinfectants or purification agents.
