"The product meets SASO standard for Pesticide residues".
All sucrose product spills present effluent management problems because of microbiological degradation. Spills should be contained and recovered by mechanical means. Any such products should be considered to be "NOT FOOD GRADE".
- Materials of Construction
- Some Engineering values
Food standards apply to the design and materials of construction of any plant and handling equipment. Corrosion-resistant or stainless steel is preferred. Particular attention should be paid to the microbiological, environmental and effluent consequences of wet-cleaning process lines and product handling areas.
