Hi to everyone

 

I am working in sugar boiled confectionery products. in process, we are passing the syrup through 80 mesh for filtering  the physical contamination like dust, stone. We used to follow two methodology to validate the CCP and the same is mentioned below. Kindly suggest any other methodology to validate 80 mesh.

 

Methodology: 

 

1. Ash content of over – flow and under –flow of samples were checked and compared to observe reduction in ash content after filtration. 

2. Syrup sample contaminated with sand powder of various particle sizes. Filtered through 80 mesh filter and the particle size in the filtered sample was  checked. to ensure that no particle of size above 177 microns in present in the filtrate.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Hi Moorthi,

 

CCPs are based on safety risk assessment.

 

From the above info, I am dubious that hazards 1,2 would be risk-associated with CCPs.


Kind Regards,

If you are producing product for the United States, FDA released an article long ago about foreign material contamination maximum size for injury. It states that anything under 7 mm is not a hazard. By this thinking, 80 mesh screen would obviously accomplish this goal. I will paste a link to this document from FDA below.
