MicroZap

MicroZap makes food safe to eat by killing dangerous pathogens to avoid costly recalls and extends shelf life to eliminate food waste and hunger.

MicroZap originally licensed the technology from Texas Tech to kill food borne pathogens such as Salmonella. MicroZap has since advanced the technology further with 7 patents issued and 5 more pending and has successfully treated E. coli, Listeria and MRSA as well.

MicroZap's patented technology and process kills dangerous pathogens making food safe without cooking the food, so fresh food remains Fresh. A MicroZap treated loaf of bread can last 7 times longer than current loaves and can make a preservative free bread last as long as a loaf high in preservatives.
