Effectiveness of Electrolysed Water on Foodborne Pathogens

According to the Australian Institute of Food Safety, in Australia there are around 5.4 million cases of food poisoning each year resulting in an average of 120 deaths. Scientific case studies and subsequent research papers have asserted that “electrolysed water is highly effective in reducing or eliminating foodborne pathogens on kitchen boards and various food products, such as fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables, on which it reduced populations of pathogens to undetectable levels”.
