How Sterilized Packaging Helps in Enhancing the Safety in Food Consumption
FMI predicts sterilized packaging will be crucial for maintaining the sterility of the contained items. Packaging plays a critical role in the food industry in terms of maintaining the quality and taste of the packaged food for a longer time. With the improvement in the standard of living of the consumers globally, demand for packaged food has shown rapid surge over the years.
Globally, almost 10% of the population falls ill after eating contaminated food. Additionally, 40% of diseases in children are foodborne diseases. FDA has suggested the use of sterile packaged food to improve the safety in food consumption.
According to the FSSAI, the sales volume of packaged food products surged by over 48% in the span of 2012 to 2016. With the increase in demand for packaged food and awareness for the use of aseptic and sterile packaging is driving the market growth.
Sterilized packaging is considered a medical device and thus it must undergo validation testing before being used in healthcare facilities. There are several types of sterilized packaging systems in the market today.
A report from Future Market Insights suggests that the sterilized containers are designed to maintain the sterility of the contained items while allowing the penetration of the sterilizing agent and providing an efficient way to sterilize multiple items simultaneously. However, there are a set of guidelines and standards that they must follow, with not all packaging systems being compatible with all types of sterilization processes.
There are basically three types of sterilization packages: flat wrappers, sterilization containers, and paper-plastic peel pouches. This article will discuss standards for sterilization packaging and sterilization packaging requirements for packaging manufacturers issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Packaging materials include wrapped perforated instrument cassettes, peel pouches of plastic or paper, and sterilization wraps (which can be either woven or unwoven). Packaging materials should be designed for the type of sterilization process being used and should be appropriate for the items being sterilized.
Sterilization packaging is classified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a Class II medical device. This requires it to meet certain regulatory standards, particularly regarding factors that affect sterility, such as package quality, handling, transport, and storage.
Each type of sterilization container has its own directions for use. Furthermore, regardless of container used, each sterilized package should include information on the label regarding the sterilizer used, cycle or load number, date of sterilization, and expiration date, where applicable.
