Bread + ozone


One of my acquaintances has a question, when someone disinfect food with ozone, if bread doesn't form something harmful in reaction with ozone. I honestly don't know, but maybe someone here does?

probably the surface might be a bit oxidized, but it should't be harmful
just don't let food in contact with ozone for days and you are ok xD

feel free to correct my grammar, or any mistakes i make

Ozone, UVC and others are not very good at sterilizing sub-surface contaminants. If you could first apply a high vacuum on a bread, and then pressurize the chamber with very high pressure of enriched ozone gas, it would probably do the job a bit better.

Ozone oxidizes most stuff to their highest oxidation state. In some instances this creates harmful compounds from non-harmful ones.

It is safe, but the most common use of ozone in the food industry is in the form of ozonated water. (if the question is in general, ozonated water and bread probably won't taste that good :D)
