Desarrollan tratamiento con arándanos rojos y cítricos para combatir norovirus
A team of Canadian researchers have developed a treatment combining fruit extracts and irradiation to prevent outbreaks of foodborne infections.
Fresh produce is a major vehicle for noroviruses, a group of viruses that are the most common cause of gastroenteritis in developed countries. However, the viruses are said to be resistant to cold pasteurization treatments such as irradiation, which are used to destroy bacteria, moulds, parasites and insects. The irradiation process uses gamma rays or X-rays to destroy these viruses but at the dose needed to eliminate them, it can affect the physicochemical properties of fresh produce.
