Abstract

After thirteen years of intensive research, using high doses of ionizing energy, highly acceptable wholesome shelf-stable bacon, ham, pork, beef, chicken and shrimp can be produced in the laboratory. Using doses below 1 Mrad, the shelf life of highly acceptable wholesome fish, wheat and wheat products, oranges, and white potatoes can be extended. Before production in the United States can be scaled up to commercial quantities for the broad consumer market, approvals are required from the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) and, for meats from mammals and birds, from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). These agencies have approved bacon, wheat and wheat products, and white potatoes, following receipt and evaluation of petitions containing all pertinent information including description of the process to be used and the food-package combination to be cleared, the proposed radiation source, the dose range, dosimetry methods, wholesomeness and nutritional data, positive proof of microbiological safety, absence of measurable induced radioactivity, acceptance data from taste panelists, and storage and shipping data where applicable. Collecting the data required for successful petitions has proved to be both time-consuming and expensive. To improve this situation, the whole process of data collection and of writing the petitions  More>>

(author) [French] Apres treize ans de recherches intensives au moyen de fortes doses de rayonnements ionisants, il est maintenant possible de produire en laboratoire. des denrees - lard, jambon, viande de porc etdeboeuf, poulet, crevettes - se conservant bien et de comestibilite tout a fait satisfaisante. En utilisant des doses inferieures a 1 Mrad, il est possible de prolonger la duree de conservation du poisson, du ble et derives, des oranges et des pommes de terre a chair blanche, la comestibilite de ces denrees etant tout a fait satisfaisante. Aux Etats-Unis, pour developper la production de ces denrees dans des proportions suffisantes pour alimenter le marche, il est necessaire d'obtenir l'autorisation du Service de controle des produits alimentaires et pharmaceutiques et, pour les viandes de mammiferes et de volatiles, celle du Departement de l'agriculture. Ces institutions ont approuve la mise sur le marche de lard, de ble et derives et de pommes de terre a chair blanche, apres reception et examen de demandes contenant tous les renseignements pertinents, notamment la description du procede d'irradiation et de conditionnement a faire accepter, la source de rayonnements proposee, la dose, les methodes de dosimetrie, les donnees relatives a la comestibilite et a la valeur nutritive, la preuve positive de l'innocuite microbiologique, l'absence de radioactivite induite mesurable, le certificat d'acceptation d'un groupe de degustateurs et, s'il y a lieu, les donnees relatives a l'emmagasinage et a l'expedition. Le rassemblement des donnees necessaires aux demandes d'autorisation s'est revele a l'usage long et couteux. Pour remedier a cet inconvenient, on etudie actuellement les moyens de simplifier et d'accelerer le rassemblement des donnees et la redaction des demandes. L'auteur presente des recommandations touchant certaines des methodes qui permettraient d'arriver a ce resultat. (author) [Spanish] Despues de trece anos de investigaciones intensivas con aplicacion de elevadas dosis de radiaciones ionizantes se ha logrado prolongar considerablemente en laboratorio el perfodo de conservacion de productos tales como el tocino, el jamon, la carne de cerdo, la carne de vaca, los pollos y los mariscos, sin que pierdan su comestibilidad. Aplicando dosis inferiores al Mrad puede prolongarse el perfodo de conservacion del pescado, del trigo y sus derivados, de las naranjas y de las patatas blancas en condiciones de comestibilidad plenamente satisfactorias. En los Estados Unidos, antes de pasar a la produccion en escala comercial para lanzar el producto al mercado, es preciso obtener la aprobacion de la United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) y en lo que se refiere a las carnesde mamiferos ydeaves, del United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Estos organismos han dado su aprobacion para productos como el tocino, el trigo y sus derivados, y las patatas blancas, despues de recibir y examinar peticiones acompanadas de toda la informacion pertinente: procedimiento que se aplicara, descripcion del conjunto alimento-envase objeto de la peticion, fuente radiactiva que se va a emplear, orden de magnitud de la dosis, metodos de dosimetria, datos sobre comestibilidad y valor nutritivo, pruebas positivas de seguridad microbiologica, ausencia de radiactividad inducida detectable, datos de aceptacion obtenidos por grupos de catadores y, cuando proceda, datos referentes al almacenamiento y transporte. La reunion de todos los datos necesarios para que se apruebe la peticion exige mucho tiempo y resulta costosa. Para remediar esta situacion se esta revisando todo el proceso de acopio de datos y de presentacion de peticiones a fin de hacerlo mas expedito. En la memoria formulan sugerencias sobre los medios mas apropiados para lograr este fin. (author) [Russian] Posle trinadcati let intensivnyh issledovanij s primeneniem bol'shih doz ionizirujushhej jenergii v nastojashhee vremja v laboratorii mozhno poluchit' sledu shhie produkty vysokogo kachestva, ne portjashhiesja pri dlitel'nyh srokah hranenija: bekon, vetchinu, svininu, kury i krevetki. Ispol'zuja dozy men'she 1 Mrad, mozhno znachitel'no uvelichit' sroki hranenija takih produktov, kak ryba, pshenica, muchnye produkty, apel'siny i belyj kartofel',bez ushherba dlja ih kachestva i prigodnosti upotreblenija v pishhu. Dlja togo, chtoby nachat' proizvodstvo takih obluchennyh produktov v SShA v shirokih kommerchesk: masshtabah potrebujutsja special'nye razreshenija ot Upravlenija po pishhevym produktam i medikamentam SShA', a v sluchae mjasa mlekopitajushhihsja i ptic - ot Ministerstva sel'skogo hozjajstva SShA. Jeti uchrezhdenija uzhe razreshili prodazhu obluchennogo bekona, pshenicy, muchnyh produktov i belogo kartofelja posle poluchenija i rassmotrenija hodatajstv, soderzhashhih vse neobhodimye svedenija, vkljuchaja opisanie processa obrabotki, tary i upakovki, predlagaemyj istochnik izluchenija, diapazon doz, metody dozimetrii, dannye o prigodnosti upotreblenija v pishhu i o soderzhanii pitatel'nyh veshhestv, dokazatel'stva mikrobiologicheskoj bezopasnosti, otsutstvie zametnoj navedennoj radioaktivnosti, utverzhdenie degustatorami, a takzhe, v sluchae neobhodimosti, dannye po hraneniju i transportirovke. Sbor podobnyh dannyh, neobhodimyh dlja prinjatija hodatajstva, trebuet dlitel'nogo vremeni i bol'shih zatrat. V celjah oblegchenija i uskorenija jetoj raboty peresmatrivaetsja ves' process sbora dannyh i sostavlenija hodatajstv. Dajutsja sootvetstvujushhie rekomendashh. (author)}
