Texas Food Safety Engineering

 

Irradiating for safety

 
 

The Texas Food Safety Engineering is a research group at Texas A&M University dedicated to solve problems related to food safety issues.

We are interested in the application of sound engineering principles to design efficient irradiation treatments for fresh produce as well as meat and other food products using electron beam technology.

The emphasis is on developing dosimetry plans using sophisticated imaging and computing simulation techniques to assure uniform dose throughout the food.

Due to the rise in illnesses, and some deaths, caused by consumption of unsafe food products in the United States and around the world, we are looking for alternative technologies to treat food products for safety purposes.

Our objective is to develop a technology that will help our food supply to be safer by preventing, treating, and predicting foodborne contaminations. If you are interested in knowing more about this program please contact us.
