Chemical Safety in Food Safety

Food safety (or food hygiene) is used as a scientific method/discipline describing the handling, preparation, and storage of food in ways that prevent foodborne illness.

Chemical safety in food safety and sanitation refers to the use of safe chemical solutions in the cleaning of kitchens and food processing facilities, so as not to negatively impact the health of consumers.

The Consequences of not ensuring Food Safety

Acute poisoning

This is one of the most severe consequences for the health of consumers. People suffering from food poisoning typically experience symptoms such as nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, and more. The reasons for acute poisoning are usually due to the consumption of food contaminated with chemicals, disease-causing microorganisms, or food that has become spoiled during processing. Symptoms of acute poisoning typically appear within 4 to 18 hours after consumption. In severe cases, it can lead to death if not treated promptly.

Long-term health effects

Currently, many foods on the market do not immediately impact health but have the potential to cause diseases such as cancer, digestive disorders, and more. Factors contributing to this include foods contaminated with heavy metals, antibiotics, and stimulants to promote growth. Common diseases associated with long-term consumption of such foods include liver and kidney failure, central nervous system degeneration, memory loss, and Parkinson's disease.

Five principles for ensuring Food Safety

Keep it clean

  • Wash your hands before and following dietary contact.
  • Maintain sanitation in food storage and processing areas, as well as the kitchen.
  • Ensure that the kitchen and food storage areas are spotless and free of insects and animals.
