History of Irradiation
Links to Irradiation Sites
Organizational Support


Using irradiation techniques to kill bacteria in food and their ingredients dates back to the early 1900s with the first patents for food preservation issued in 1905.

The evolution of irradiative treatment continued throughout the century as new techniques and further research established guidelines and documented the safety of using irradiation on many different foodstuffs, including spices, potatoes, and a variety of other everyday consumables. Each day, more and more research is done to further the understanding of how safe and necessary treatment is to meet the health and safety needs of our families and yours in today's ever-changing society.

Over 40 countries have approved and are currently using irradiative technology to protect the food supplies of their families and their animals, as well as protecting the food chain in the future. This cultural evolution continues today and you can learn more about the history of irradiation as well as the various types of methods, uses, and outstanding benefits by following the links on this site.
