Irradiation eliminates pathogens and spoilage organisms that may be naturally present on spices, dried seasonings, herbs, enzymes, cosmetics, and supplements without exposing the products to poisonous gas, like EtO (Ethylene Oxide).
FTSI’s irradiation process takes only minutes to pass gamma rays through seasonings, supplements and hundreds of other similar products. Nothing is retained in the products and the process cannot make the spice, seasoning, cosmetic or supplement radioactive. Energy from the gamma rays eliminates microorganisms and sterilizes the product. The dosage of gamma rays depends on the density of the spices, seasonings, cosmetic or supplement and U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations. The actual dosage used will be based on the needs of the customer and will be verified for each lot.
The FTSI facility is unique in that it accommodates palletized and/or case lots of spices, seasonings, cosmetics, and supplements (Visit our Virtual tour). This allows FTSI to process large volumes at low cost. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in obtaining a quote for your specific product.
