Pulsed Light Processing

A new processing technology uses intense flashes of broad-spectrum white light to kill microorganisms on packaging and food surfaces and in air and water. The flashes have a duration of 100 to 300 millionths of a second and effectively kill all microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, spores, cysts, protozoa, and viruses) in less than a second. The process is effective for sterilization when the light can reach all surfaces (such as the surfaces of packaging materials) or the total volume of a product such as water and other transmissive fluids. Microbial levels on foods, including pathogens, are reduced to extend shelf life and reduce public health risk. The process is marketed under the trade name of PureBright® by PurePulse Technologies (a subsidiary of Maxwell Technologies Inc.), 4241 Ponderosa Avenue, San Diego, California 92123.
