Torn & Glasser has bought an system from RF Biocidics that uses radio frequency technology to eliminate possible contaminants from foods.

The fourth-generation APEX system will be used to treat at least 10 different varieties of food for Torn & Glasser, which processes nuts, dried fruits, rice, beans, spices and other commodity products for customers across the US.

It uses volumetric heating to remove pests and bacteria using radio frequency waves and the process was developed at the University of California, Davis.

Craig Powell, RF Biocidics CEO, said the partnership is a big step forward in bringing its chemical-free alternative for food processing to consumers.

“We are able to provide Torn & Glasser with exceptional end quality for a wide variety of products while also offering technical and scientific expertise to support all of their needs.”

RF Biocidics also worked with the firm to develop a processing program to maintain the food’s nutritional content, texture, colour and taste. 

The system will be installed this year in Torn & Glasser’s processing facility in Pomona, California.
