The majority of the research that has been done regarding the practical applications of hypochlorous acid has been in the field of food safety. The research clearly demonstrates that hypochlorous acid is safe and efficient for ensuring microbial counts are maintained below infectious levels on food and contact surfaces.
Hypochlorous Acid vs. Quaternary Ammonium (Quats)
Hypochlorous acid has advantages over chemicals such as Quats when sanitizing food contact surfaces because Quats are not safe on food. Before cleaning with Quats, all food must be removed from the area before sanitation can take place. This is not required when using hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid can be used continuously throughout the work day regardless of whether food is exposed.
Direct Food Sanitation
Hypochlorous Acid vs. Ozone
Hypochlorous acid has advantages over ozone. Ozone is a gas and is not stable in solution therefore it cannot be used to sanitize contact surfaces. Ozone is however used for food sanitation however it must continuously be regenerated as it is continuously leaving solution into the air. Being that ozone is an irritant to the lungs and respiratory tracts, ozone is limited in the concentrations that can be used, therefore limiting the oxidation potential that can be obtained for killing microbial pathogens. Hypochlorous acid is non-irritant and is also stable in solution. Hypochlorous acid can be used at high concentrations (60 ppm) for food sanitation without requiring a post-rinse.
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS
The following search suggestions will provide you with a myriad of resource materials, such as medical publications, case studies and news articles relative to hypochlorous acid (HOCl). We have systematically researched this material over the years to realize the facts and further our knowledge and understanding of this wonderful product. As a result of our research, we are encouraged by the affirmation of the scientific community as to the positive effects of HOCl on humans, animals, and the environment.
Waiver: While we have found a mechanism and formulas to produce a superior, stable and highly effective HOCl solution, we make no claims whatsoever as to its use, whether on person or in these studies.
