Greentest - Your private assistant of food safety and sanitation
Green, healthy and safe, a deluge of words like this appeared more frequently these years, which definitely reflected the improvements of people’s life quality.
As the saying goes, a close mouth catches no flies, which reveals that food safety and sanitation plays a cardinal role. Yeas ago, we’d worried about if there was enough food for us, nowadays, we keep an eye on choosing healthy food, green food and safe food for our parents, our consorts, our children and ourselves. We cannot stop being apprehensive about what will happen after we eat something, is it favorable for an existed specific disease or will it cost any sorts of potential problems which may not be found immediately but may grow into a wrecked situation after many years, e.g. cancer, because of the long-lasting consumption of improper additives brought by improper food.
Some of us might have known about the dangers of pesticides in fresh fruit and vegetables, but few are aware that fresh fruit and vegetables expose them to dangerous nitrates. Nitrate is as harmful as pesticides, increasing health risks. Every country has standard screening for pesticides, but only EU has screening for nitrate, what about the rest of the world?
Here shows several substantial tips necessary enough to be noticed:
Nitrate salts are a naturally formed substance.
Nitrogen is 1 of 3 substances that are required by all plants. (carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen)
The main nitrates are ammonium, sodium, potassium, and calcium salts.
Excessive use causes pollution and health concerns.
Unhealthy nitrate accumulate over time, not noticeable.
Effect is long-term, irreversible.
Here follows some definitions about food safety and sanitation, found on Wikipedia, for us to review.
Food safety is a scientific discipline describing handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent foodborne illness. This includes a number of routines that should be followed to avoid potentially severe health hazards. The tracks within this line of thought are safety between industry and the market and then between the market and the consumer. In considering industry to market practices, food safety considerations include the origins of food including the practices relating to food labeling, food hygiene, food additives and pesticide residues, as well as policies on biotechnology and food and guidelines for the management of governmental import and export inspection and certification systems for foods. In considering market to consumer practices, the usual thought is that food ought to be safe in the market and the concern is safe delivery and preparation of the food for the consumer.
Sanitation within the food industry means the adequate treatment of food-contact surfaces by a process that is effective in destroying vegetative cells of microorganisms of public health significance, and in substantially reducing numbers of other undesirable microorganisms, but without adversely affecting the food or its safety for the consumer (U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Code of Federal Regulations, 21CFR110, USA). Sanitation Standard Operating Procedures are mandatory for food industries in United States, which are regulated by 9 CFR part 416 in conjunction with 21 CFR part 178.1010. Similarly, in Japan, food hygiene has to be achieved through compliance with food sanitation law.
Considering nitrate hazards serious, it is conspicuous that we should refuse to this unwitting nitrate effect.
Recently, according to the big data analysis, it is speculated that products for health care are going to be more popular in the future. As a matter of fact, we do not have to worry about that any more by obtaining the first device - Greentest ! It allows consumers to perform an express check, in only 3 seconds, of fruits and vegetables for contaminants, harmful substances and detect freshness, overripeness and rotting.
Greentest is the first in the line of portable compact “G” - personal safety devices. The functionality was made as easy as possible to simplify usage for people of all age groups. The proprietary Greentest algorithm accurately calculates the specimen’s nitrate content by comparing its electrical conductivity against a database obtained from exhaustive mass spectrometer testing of similar specimens under laboratory conditions
Greentest, a sophisticated food safety testing equipment, helping people enjoy a better healthy life. Greentest can be your best private assistant of food safety and sanitation you never ever had before. Come and have a look. ←
