Abstract

Research into the uses of ionizing radiations for the control of insects infesting stored foodstuffs has demonstrated the technical feasibility of irradiation for the treatment of grain. Studies in radiation entomology have established the susceptibilities of the principal grain storage insects and the extent to which environmental factors may modify the efficacy of treatment. Investigations into chemical and physical properties of irradiated grain have shown no adverse effects on organoleptic and manufacturing properties at the dose level required for disinfestation. Work on the wholesomeness of irradiated grain has shown no loss in nutritional adequacy, with the result that clearance has been given in the United States for the human consumption of irradiated wheat and wheat products. Engineering considerations suggest that irradiation is an economic competitor to chemical methods for the treatment of grain at large exporting or collecting centres. With bulk storage and automated conveying systems now established as the most expedient method of handling grain between producers and consumers, it can be wisely predicted that implementation of radiation disinfestation into the grain handling industry will follow in the foreseeable future. Information on infestation problems and the grain-handling industries of various countries is used to illustrate the likely future potential  More>>

(author) [French] Les recherches sur l'emploi des rayonnements ionisants pour la desinsection des denrees alimentaires emmagasinees ont demontre qu'il est techniquement possible d'utiliser l'irradiation pour le traitement des cereales. Les etudes de radioentomologie ont permis d'etablir les sensibilites des principaux insectes infestant les cereales stockees et la mesure dans laquelle les-facteurs inherents au milieu ambiant peuvent modifier l'efficacite du traitement. Les recherches sur les proprietes chimiques et physiques des cereales irradiees n'ont fait apparaitre aucun effet defavorable sur les qualites organoleptiques et les qualites meunieres, boulangeres et autres, aux doses necessaires pour la desinsection. Les etudes sur la comestibilite des cereales irradiees n'ont revele aucune perte de valeur nutritive; en consequence, les autorites des Etats-Unis ont permis la consommation par la population de ble et derives irradies. Les considerations techniques semblent indiquer que l'irradiation peut etre consideree, du point de vue economique, comme un concurrent des methodes chimiques pour le traitement des cereales dans les grands centres d'exportation ou de ramassage. A l'heure actuelle, les methodes de stockage en vrac et de transport automatise'se sont imposees comme moyens les plus expeditifs de manipulation des cereales entre le producteur et le consommateur; on peut donc prevoir que l'application de la radiodesinsection au cours des operations de manipulation des cereales ne tardera pas a se generaliser. Partant de renseignements sur les problemes d'infestation et sur les industries des cereales dans les divers pays, l'auteur fait ressortir les possibilites d'avenir en ce qui concerne l'emploi de l'irradiation pour le traitement des cereales a l'echelle internationale. (author) [Spanish] Las investigaciones sobre el empleo de radiaciones ionizantes en la lucha contra los insectos que atacan los alimentos almacenados han demostrado que es tecnicamente posible tratar los granos por irradiacion. Las investigaciones radioentomologicas han permitido determinar la sensibilidad de los principales insectos que atacan los granos y la medida en que los factores ambientales pueden alterar la eficacia del tratamiento. El estudio de las propiedades quimicas y fisicas de los granos sometidos a las dosis de radiaciones que la desinsectacion requiere no muestra ningun efecto adverso sobre las propiedades organolepticas u otras de importancia para la futura utilizacion. Los trabajos sobre la comestibilidad de los granos irradiados indican que estos no pierden propiedades nutritivas, lo que ha dado lugar a que en los Estados Unidos se autorizara el consumo humano del trigo irradiado y de sus productos. Consideraciones de orden tecnico indican que, en los grandes centros de exportacion o almacenamiento de granos, la irradiacion puede competir economicamente con los metodos quimicos. Una vez establecido que el almacenamiento en grandes cantidades y los sistemas automaticos de transporte son los procedimientos mas rapidos y economicos para hacer llegar el grano a los consumidores, se puede predecir con bastante seguridad que en un futuro no muy lejano la irradiacion constituira una de las etapas del proceso de distribucion del grano. En la memoria se informa sobre algunos de los problemas que plantea la infestacion y se expone la forma en que la distribucion esta organizada en diversos paises a fin de ilustrar las ventajas que encierra la irradiacion para el tratamiento de granos en una escala internacional.
