Electrolyzed Water as a Disinfectant for Fresh-cut Vegetables

A Stomacher® 400 was used to aid the study into whether electrolyzed water could be used as a disinfectant for fresh-cut vegetables. The Stomacher® 400 was used to conduct a homogenate test. The study found that electrolyzed water containing 15 to 50 ppm available Chlorine was effective as a disinfectant for fresh-cut vegetables without causing discolouration.
