Food Irradiation
Principles and Applications
edited by Ricardo Molins

In 1997 the FDA approved the use of low-dose ionizing radiation to eliminate pathogens in red meat. This food processing technology can improve the safety of food and extend shelf life of certain foods by eliminating pathogenic bacteria, parasites, and other microorganisms that cause foodborne disease. Currently 42 countries allow some use of food irradiation.

This book provides a single source of information comprising all aspects of food irradiation: historical, technical, economic, and regulatory.
