Food Safety Concerns Spawn New Technologies
Extractors made by FMC Corporation drain oranges without letting the juice come in contact with the peel. In tests conducted in a pilot study with the FDA, a 6.37 log reduction was achieved by Orchid Island Juice Company, Ft. Pierce, FL. using the FMC system. Orchid Island's John Martelli said "there were a number of scientists who said five-log reductions were unattainable without pasteurization." The new process has seen similar results with other manufacturers.
