How is hypochlorous acid used in the seafood industry?


Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) can be used at harvest and processing to sanitize raw seafood as a no-rinse sanitizer at up to 60 ppm per FDA FCN 1811. HOCl can be dosed in the water for creating sanitized ice for storing or displaying seafood. It can be applied via hoses to clean equipment and sanitize work areas. Employees can step into foot bathes and be misted by HOCl when entering a processing facility.
