|20130344210||Food Treatment Method - A food treatment method involves applying alkali metal bisulfate to an outer surface of a food, by an application process beginning with the alkali metal bisulfate in a solution and ending with the alkali metal bisulfate at least partially crystallized when it contacts the food surface. In certain embodiments, the application process causes at least partial evaporation of solvent from the solution. For example, the application process may include forming droplets of the solution, and/or propelling the solution with a gas having a relative humidity not greater than 60% or a temperature of at least 20° C. In certain embodiments, the beginning solution is an aqueous solution including the alkali metal bisulfate at a concentration within a range from 30% to 80%.||12-26-2013|
|20130251819||Method of Reducing Microbes on Food - An antimicrobial composition useful for microbial reduction on food includes an oxidizer and an acid component. The oxidizer includes hydrogen peroxide and/or peroxyacetic acid. The acid component includes one or more inorganic acids or their salts. For example, the acid component may be selected from sodium acid sulfate, sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, phosphoric acid, sulfamic acid, nitric acid, hydrofluoric acid, or combinations thereof. In certain embodiments, the antimicrobial composition additionally includes one or more surfactants. A method of reducing microbes on food includes applying to the food the above-described antimicrobial composition.||09-26-2013|
|20120301580||MICROBIAL CONTROL METHOD AND FOOD COMPOSITION - A microbial control method includes applying dry particles of alkali metal bisulfate to an outer surface of a dry food to control microbial contamination of the food. A food composition includes a dry food having an outer surface covered with dry particles of alkali metal bisulfate that control microbial contamination of the food.||11-29-2012|
|20120067292||CONTROL OF AMMONIA EMISSIONS FROM ANIMAL AGRICULTURE OPERATIONS - An apparatus is disclosed for applying a chemical, such as an ammonia control chemical, in an animal house. The apparatus includes spreading apparatus adapted to be installed at an elevated position in the animal house and adapted for spreading the chemical onto the floor in the house. The apparatus also includes feeding apparatus adapted for feeding the chemical from a supply to the spreading apparatus. A method of controlling ammonia emissions from an animal agriculture operation includes applying an ammonia control chemical during both the early part and the late part of the grow out of the animals so that the chemical contacts ammonia from animal waste and reduces or prevents its emission into the air.||03-22-2012|
|20110086146||ANTIMICROBIAL COMPOSITIONS FOR MEAT PROCESSING - A method and composition for reducing microbes during a meat processing operation are provided. The composition includes an acid blend that is a blend of (a) an organic acid selected from the group consisting of lactic acid, acetic acid, and mixtures thereof, and (b) a second material selected from the group consisting of alkali metal salts of an inorganic acids, mineral acids, and mixtures thereof.||04-14-2011|
