Food Safety

Brainerd’s Terrastat Peracetic Acid antimicrobial solution can be used in food processing applications. Applying Terrastat directly to meat, poultry, pork and seafood carcasses, parts, and organs effectively reduces contamination of pathogenic bacteria, Escherichia Coli, Salmonella Typhimurium and Listeria Monocytogenes as well as other product spoiling bacteria.

The fastest growing segment of PAA users is the Food Processing industry. Rising concern regarding hygiene along with high vulnerability to microbial infection in foods is the reason Brainerd has committed to being an industry leader in producing PAA solutions. Our Terrastat PAA product can be customized to aid in the disinfecting needs of your business. The benefit of using our PAA in your food processing plant is it can be applied directly to the meats to kill microorganisms yet still breaks down into environmentally friendly by-products (acetic acid and water). Brainerd’s custom blends of Terrastat PAA are the perfect solution to help your business produce the healthiest and safest foods possible.
