Hypochlorous Acid is safe and effective as a no-rinse sanitizer on produce. There are no harmful residues, no alterations in taste, no odors, and no discolorations. Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water has been cleared by the FDA for no-rinse sanitation of produce if generated from EWCO systems. See FCN 1811 on the FDA website. Also see the letter from USDA Organic.

Hypochlorous Acid Generator is electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid which is highly effective against Escherichia coli, Salmonella, and Listeria. To learn more please visit our research page and search by microbe or search industries such as produce or agriculture.

Hypochlorous Acid Generator

Hypochlorous Acid Generator, or electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid, is a safe and effective antimicrobial on fruits and vegetables. Electrolyzed water has demonstrated in numerous studies to be highly effective for inactivating  E. coli O157:H7, Salmonella enteritidis, Listeria monocytogenes, and spore-forming bacteria. Hypochlorous Acid Generator is a no-rinse sanitizer. No post-rinse with potable water is required. Hypochlorous Acid Generator leaves no harmful residues, does not alter taste, does not leave an odor, and does not cause discoloration of produce. Hypochlorous Acid Generator satisfies the demand for implementing safer and more natural food products.

Hypochlorous Acid solution is ideal for replacing the water used in produce washers. There are no limitations to the capacity that can be produced. For large produce washers, the Hypochlorous Acid Generator can produce tons of electrolyzed water (hypochlorous acid) per day. The systems can also be stacked to meet any produce washer need. Electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid is a powerful oxidant that is stable in solution. When saturating produce contaminated with microbial pathogens, hypochlorous acid quickly inactivates the pathogens by damaging their cell walls and disrupting their internal proteins, lipids, and DNA.

For greenhouse growers, electrolytically generated hypochlorous acid can be used to clean and disinfect hydroponic channels and eradicate biofilm in irrigation systems. Adding low concentrations to irrigation water can control buildup of bioflim and reduce bacteria at the roots of plants.
