Liquid nitrogen in food industry
You maybe have heard that liquid nitrogen can rapidly freeze the food, haven’t you? And what are its advantages and benefits? Let's get to know the liquid nitrogen in food industry with ITO (Thailand).
Ultrafine bubble (UFB) technology (Part 2)
The previous content has discussed the benefits of the ultrafine bubble technology in agriculture, livestock, and fisheries, cleaning raw materials and various surfaces. Today, we will continue to learn about the use of the ultrafine bubble technology in food production processes and waste management from the food industry and how to create these tiny gas bubbles.
Ultrafine bubble (UFB) technology (Part 1)
Simple bubbles when transformed into the micro-nano level can do more than you think. Let's learn about the technology of these tiny bubbles and their application in the food industry with ITO (Thailand).
Frozen food storage management
Freezing is a method of food preservation commonly used in food that goes bad quickly such as ready-to-cook fresh food, ready meals, or foods in which nutritional values decay easily, or have substances that are sensitive to temperature, light, oxygen, etc. Freezing uses a principle of quickly solidifying water in the products, making the molecules of the substances unable to react to one another, thus the foods last longer. It also suppresses the growth of microorganisms and kills parasites. For instance, USFDA suggested controlling parasites in fish consumed raw such as sushi and sashimi by freezing the fish at the minimum of 20 degrees Celsius for 7 days or stored at -35 degrees Celsius for 15 hours to control parasites in fish (conditions may depend on the size of the fish as well).
Pay attention to the hygiene of the footwear for good hygiene in the food industry
Innovation for sustainable physical contamination prevention
It is known that external impurities pose a food safety risk. One of the main channels of contamination is the presence of humans as a carrier of dust and dirt into the production or high-risk areas, causing dirt, germs, or foreign matters to contaminate food and harm consumers.

Pest Control in Food Industry
Pests are one of the big problems of good hygienic food production control due to causing a large of damage such as damage or dirtiness of raw materials or equipment resulted from gnawing, droppings, waste scattering, contamination of animals or animal parts (e.g. dog hair, cat or rat hair, insect wings, insect legs), secretions or droppings in food, carriers of pathogens, parasites and microorganisms that spoil food, and allergens, etc. Bringing these animals into the factory area may be caused by mixing with raw materials such as weevil eggs in grains, drosophila in fruits and vegetables, pests hang onto the employees such as by stepping on insect carcasses and not changing or proper cleaning the shoes, animal entry and exit while opening the door in/out or along the openings, holes and sewers or the air such as flying insects or bird droppings, etc.
Organizational Transformation into Digital Age by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Technology
Optical Character Recognition known as OCR technology is a technology used to distinguish the characters from a digital photograph such as a scanned image and printed images on various materials. The system consists of image acquisition hardware, such as camera or scanner, and character detection software.
Modern Food Industry with the Role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) System in Conjunction with Computer Vision Technology
Nowadays, many technologies have played significant roles in food industry; for instance, either to increase production capacity, accuracy, work efficiency or to reduce the loss of raw materials, resources, time, contamination, labor shortage problem or to be used in dangerous locations
Food grade material
In the food industry or even in everyday life, we often hear the terms “Food grade” or “Food safe.” Both are similar, but they have different meanings as follows: “Food grade” means to materials suitable for direct contact with food, while “Food safe” means food grade materials and products are suitable for use and do not pose a danger to food safety. 
High Speed Door: Prevent Contamination with Technology
One of the critical points of environmental contamination, whether it is dust, insects, pests, dirt, allergens or microorganisms, is the entrance area, which is the connection point to the external environment. When the door stays open while the employee walks in and out, it has a chance to let foreign matter and dirt slip into the production area, which can result in food safety issues.
