Irradiation treatment of spices and herbs
Spices have been used for thousands of years to improve the taste of dishes. They are an integral part of any cuisine in the world.
Spice making is a complex process that requires additional sterilization. Using ionizing radiation technology in the processing of such complex products as spices or herbs is one way to achieve maximum sterility.
The evolution of ionizing radiation technology
Over 40 years in the world, the largest manufacturers of spices and herbs process their products with ionizing radiation, which eliminates pathogenic microorganisms, guarantees quality and prolongs its shelf life.

Currently, the world has formed the industry for processing products by ionizing radiation. In large cities, sterilization centers are located at a great distance, that's why sometimes manufacturers are forced to deliver their products even more than thousands of kilometers.

BeamComplex company has developed and manufactured compact sterilization complexes intended for placement inside of the enterprises.

Results of spices and herbs treatment with
ionizing radiation
The reduction or complete elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, mold and fungi, insects and larvae, as well as viruses (coronavirus).

The only processing technology in sealed packaging eliminates the possibility of re-seeding and to increase the shelf life. An increase in storage periods allows expanding sales markets and increasing export volumes, as well as selling up to 100% of products.

After treatment with ionizing radiation, the cellular and molecular structure of spices does not change.

Organoleptic properties do not change. The weight of the product remains unchanged throughout the storage period.

After processing, the need for preservatives is reduced or disappears.

When processing spices and herbs at our company's accelerators, there is no radioactive contamination in the products. Numerous studies prove the safety of eating foods after processing.
Accelerated electron processing technology is only a tool, and the goal is to minimize losses and provide the maximum number of people on Earth with safe products.

Pathogens can be injured or killed due to DNA damage.
Ionizing Radiation technology

Accelerated electron processing is the use of electron energy and x-ray radiation (ionizing radiation) to kill pathogens.

Temperature of processed products from -32 ° C to + 4 ° C

Electron accelerator generates electrons and accelerate them approximately the speed of light; electrons penetrate the product it occurs DNA destruction of pathogenic microorganisms.

Accelerating electrons processing technology allowed to exclude outdated processing technology with chemicals or cobalt (Co-60).
