Food Safety Agency Praise Novel Blender
Mar 17 2010
Smasher®, the novel food sample paddle blender from AES Chemunex, has been evaluated by the French agency for food safety (AFSSA) in a comprehensive study on 150 samples with two main objectives: test the contamination homogeneity of a chicken carcass in order to validate its use as a sample to make the comparative study between conventional and Smasher® blenders; and test the Smasher® at different blending durations vs. conventional blending device with homogeneously contaminated samples.
The conclusion underlines Smasher’s outstanding efficiency for the food sample microbial analysis preparation: “The results obtained from 150 samples for each condition showed that the Smasher® tested at 15 and 30 seconds blending times made it possible to obtain results similar to those of the conventional blender tested at a 60 second blending time.
The statistical analyses made showed that the differences between the three blending times were not significant."
