Hi Charles.C ,
I agreed suggestions for the (1) and (3).
but I litter bit confuse for (2)" Ask yr kit supplier the same question as per yr Post 9." What is point 9
Secondly it was requested. Can you share sesame anti-allergen chemical accordingly to the food safety? And also effective for the microbiological control or increase the 150ppm to 250ppm existing sanitizer.
Looking for your repose.
Thanks and regards,
Hi Ashfaq Hussain,
Post 9, not Point 9. I meant you should inform supplier yr present C/S procedure and ask if they have a better idea.
I deduce the proposals in Posts 6, 7 not workable for you.
I also deduce you have so far only used Agra strip for testing C/S removal of sesame residues.
After checking, I should correct my PS Post 10 since trisodium phospate can be a heavy duty cleaner. afaik it is not a general purpose sanitizer albeit effective in some applications.
IMO yr first problem seems to be lack of quantitative knowledge as to the efficiency/reproducability of the cleaning procedure both (a) overall and (b) particularly with respect to sesame residue.
For (a) and indirectly (b), the best achievable result can be quantitatively evaluated via ATP/ protein test kits and if the (validated) Agra strip still positive, will need to modify/change the Cleaning procedure or the strip LOD (or maybe both) if you desire an Agra negative sesame allergen result.
(As per Scampi's last comment in Post 5, my guess is that the present cleaning procedure is simply not powerful enough to get < 5ppm. Yr phosphate supplier can maybe suggest a stronger option or try more "scrubbing").
Regardless of above theory, if it can be accepted by yr customer, a trial of a higher LOD test strip (eg allergen or protein type) is probably the quickest alternative.
Re ^^^(red) - So what is the present Sanitizer/concentration and the present micro result/objective ?
PS - Should note that one caveat with relaxing the LOD is that if it results in carry-over to other products which are then tested using, say, 5ppm test strips, a positive result may cause lot rejection since afaik, there is zero tolerance for this allergen.
(May depend on the details of yr Product Labelling/ Local Regulatory Allergen Regulations)
