Food irradiation is the process of exposing food and food packaging to ionizing ng radiation, such as from gamma rays, x-rays, or electron beams, is energy that can be transmitted without direct contact to the source of the energy capable of freeing electrons from their atomic bonds in the targeted radiation can be emitted by a radioactive substance or generated.

Application of Radiation Most widely used techniques of irradiating food are gamma radiation from CO60 and Cs Electron beams from linear accelerators 6. RADIATION TREATMENT OF FOOD Radappertization: used in canning industry, kGy.

Irradiation, as used in food science, is the application of this energy to a specific material, such as food product, with the purpose of increasing storage stability through reduction of microorganisms, elimination of parasites or insects, or blockage of enzyme Cited by: Radiation processing of food involves the controlled application of energy from ionizing radiations such as gamma rays, electrons and X-rays for food preservation.

Gamma rays and X-rays are short wavelength radiations of the electromagnetic spectrum which includes radiowaves, microwaves, infrared. The efforts of the U.S. Army throughout Vietnam during this time allowed for growing political stability in South Vietnam leading up to the 3 September election.
