UV Irradiation of Strawberries Saves Water

A team of researchers in Spain finds UV irradiation of strawberries is just as effective as rinsing them in chlorine-treated water, but may use less water because the wash water can be re-irradiated and reused. The research appears in “Inactivation of Salmonella enterica, Listeria monocytogenes and murine norovirus (MNV-1) on fresh strawberries by conventional and water-assisted ultraviolet light (UV-C)” published in the Apr. 2021 edition of Postharvest Biology and Technology.
