Irradation Free

While there is much controversy on the topic of irradiation, GOFoods takes the position that good, clean food does not need to be irradiated in any way. Irradiation is a method used to treat fresh produce with the intention of destroying microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, and insects. The dehydration process can accomplish this same process naturally without excessive cost.

Food irradiation is potentially damaging to the long- and short-term health of consumers as the process can delay the ripening of food as well as result in loss of nutrients; vitamin E levels, for example, can be reduced by 25% after irradiation, and vitamin C by 5–10%, and when added to a long shelf life, consumers may be left with product containing empty calories.
