Fresh Wash Seafood TM – Technical Typically with a 10% solution, 10 7 - 10 8 will be reduced to 10 2. From this level, bacteria will take longer to reproduce to levels where spoilage and potential food poisoning can occur. The anti-microbial power is due to a synergistic action created by the reaction between the natural organic acids and natural sugars present in the product and in the treated food. The natural organic acids and sugars that make up the product combine with those naturally present in food to create a powerful and long-lasting anti- microbial effect. During the initial anti-microbial contact period, it combines with the pathogens present on the food and breaks down into harmless components, carbon dioxide and water. Within a few hours of application, the natural components that remain will have either combined with the organic acids and sugars present in the food, or broken down further into harmless components, leaving no detectable residues or toxicity.
