About X-ray Inspection of Food

METTLER TOLEDO tackles some of the most common misconceptions about x-ray inspection of food in a new white paper – How Safe is X-ray Inspection of Food?

The paper answers important questions for food manufacturers, including:

  • Why use x-ray inspection?
  • What are the effects of x-rays to flavours, textures and nutritional value of food?
  • What is the difference between x-ray inspection and food irradiation?
  • What is the difference between x-ray radiation and radioactivity?
  • How safe are x-ray systems used in the food industry?

The eight-page paper explains that, with production lines getting faster and consumer expectations rising, manufacturers are under pressure to adopt high-speed and reliable methods of food inspection to ensure their products are safe. X-ray systems do just that.

The paper uses layman’s terms to explain the principles behind x-ray inspection and how it can help food manufacturers comply with national and international regulations. Yes, people are right to be wary of radiation, but this white paper dispels a few myths and delivers some surprising facts.

The paper is available to download free at www.mt.com/xray-safety
