Germ Gobbler™ – eco-friendly sanitizer

A potent, eco-friendly sanitizer and natural disinfecting agent which is non-toxic, for controlling all microorganisms across a wide variety of industries

Product Description:

Germ Gobbler™ is a revolution in toxic free, eco-friendly sanitizer and decontamination product, being the natural alternative widely used to control micro organisms. The product is manufactured from specially selected bioflavanoids and organic acids from vegetables and fruit, the ideal replacement for chlorine. Germ Gobbler™ is a broad spectrum natural anti bacteria sanitizer that can be used in a wide range of industries, including food processing, pharmaceutical, water treatment, catering, medical, agriculture, livestock and many other applications. When used for sanitizing, this powerful agent destroys any bacteria that are present, while leaving a food safe, non-toxic residue that keeps bacteria from multiplying.

Safety:
The eco-friendly sanitizer – the Germ Gobbler™,  is a much safer product to use than existing disinfecting and sanitizing methods as it presents no risk to children, pets or the operator during application, and has no harmful residual effect, it’s so safe it can be sprayed around tradesmen while they work. Germ Gobbler™ is safe to use around children, pets, and food areas, and is ideal to replace harsh disinfectants and sanitizers!

Toxicity:
Germ Gobbler™ is not toxic to humans, plants or animals making it an eco-friendly sanitizer. The product is not washed from the surface it has sanitized, consequently it continues to sanitize until bacteria/pathogen loading exceeds the volume of Germ Gobbler™ present. It is food contact safe and non-hazardous if it enters waterways.

Effectiveness:
Germ Gobbler™ is highly effective against E-coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas and Listeria

Mechanism of Action:
Germ Gobbler™ does not poison the organism, but acts mechanistically by destroying the cellular membrane of a micro-organism (cell wall intrusion). Its efficacy is due to the unique blend of bioflavanoids and organic acids included in the formulation. All ingredients are carried in a food safe naturally derived glycerin solvent which makes the active ingredient soluble in water.

FOOD INDUSTRY:

Meat Processing:
The control of bacterial contamination in meat processing and packaging is an important health and economic consideration in the meat industry. Currently the antibacterial/antimicrobial regimes for this market are dominated by products containing high levels of chlorine, bromine, sulphur dioxide, benzoates and nitrites. These chemicals are toxic highly reactive materials and pose both application and disposal issues for operators and the environment. Germ Gobbler™ is an organic, eco-friendly sanitizer that can deliver the requirements of cleaning and sanitizing in a non- toxic, non-corrosive and biodegradable system, thus greatly reducing O.H.& S. and chemical toxicity issues. Germ Gobbler™ can be used for direct carcass washing to reduce levels of common pathogens associated with food poisoning in domestic meat processing. Germ Gobbler™ is also a powerful natural antioxidant which may assist in prolonging the storage life of the meat. Germ Gobbler™ can be dosed into washing sprays or used in dip tanks or ice production for mechanical cleaning of meat after processing.

Fruit & Vegetable Processing:
Fruit and vegetable require sanitizing prior to processing or after processing to eliminate food poisoning from pathogens such as E.coli. Traditionally chlorine has been the product of choice because it is relatively inexpensive and in more recent times peroxy acid has also been used. Germ Gobbler™ is an excellent alternative to chlorine and peroxy acids in the spraying or dipping of fruit and vegetables during processing. It provides safe and effective residual sanitizing, without the risk of damage to delicate foods. Germ Gobbler™ is not deactivated by common soils so solutions last much longer. Germ Gobbler™ is ideal for washing of whole fruit and vegetables before packaging and can be used to sanitize cut fruit and vegetables such as apples, oranges, lettuce cucumber, etc prior to packaging. At the end of the process line Germ Gobbler™ is applied by sprays or dip tank system prior to packaging. Germ Gobbler™ should not be washed off the produce unless moisture will be detrimental to the product.  Germ Gobbler™ keeps killing bacteria and fungus while it is present on the produce even while in its packaging. Fruit and vegetables treated with Germ Gobbler™ exhibit improved storage life. Germ Gobbler™ can be used as a preservative for some products such as olives.  You can also use this eco-friendly sanitizer effectively on vegetables that have been cooked and require protection from potential bacteria growth.

Hard Surface Disinfection:
Equipment washed, sprayed or dipped in Germ Gobbler™ will be sanitized. Germ Gobbler™ is effective to sanitize eating tables, bench tops, sinks, stoves, fridges, cool rooms, table tops, ovens, microwaves, cutlery, crockery, work surfaces, cutting boards, cutlery, washing up water, dishwashing clothes, and cookware.

Poultry:
The control of bacterial contamination in poultry rearing, egg and carcass processing and packaging is an important health and economic consideration in the poultry. Germ Gobbler™ products can be used in a number of areas in the poultry industry. Germ Gobbler™ can be used for surface sanitation on all processing surfaces and equipment with no requirement for rinsing. The product is completely non-toxic to humans and animals and can be used for cage and pen cleaning. Germ Gobbler™ can be used during poultry rearing, as a liquid added to the water supply for the birds. The broad spectrum biocidal efficacy reduces water contamination and cross infection.

Seafood and Fish:
The control of bacterial contamination in seafood processing and packaging is an important health and economic consideration in the meat industry. Germ Gobbler™ products can be used in a number of areas in the seafood industry. Fish is washed in water treated with Germ Gobbler™ and removes slime and microorganisms very effectively.

Water used to make ice can be treated with Germ Gobbler™ prior to freezing. Spread an adequate quantity of flake ice over each layer of fish as it is stored. The slow melting of the ice will distribute Germ Gobbler™ over the fish thereby providing continuous sanitization. Dip prawns for a minimum of 5 minutes in a Germ Gobbler™/water mix. By dipping the prawns in this solution it prevents “Black Spot.” Care must be taken at this point to keep product temperature and condition stable by freezing or chilling. If the black spot has already occurred, Germ Gobbler™ will not act as a bleaching compound and remove the black spot.
