In this video, you will learn about food sanitization. One of the most important parts of food preparation is the cleaning and sanitizing. Cleaning is the removal of food or soil debris where the bacteria live.
Sanitation is disinfecting the preparation area. Food particles and bacteria can dry on the table surfaces. Many particles are not visible to the naked eye. Surface scratches and grooves can harbor germs too. Sanitizing efforts are very important when preparing food. Water helps loosen food and other particles for easy cleaning. The water should be from an approved source so that you are not cleaning with dirty water. When they are visible, repeated washings may be needed. As part of the cleaning steps, make sure you sanitize cutting boards, equipment, utensils, dining room surfaces, etc. Fresh soapy water in a sink is a good place to start. At a minimum, change wash water before each meal. Each time to clean the wash water, use clean linens. Those used in other areas should not be reused. Sanitizing is done after washing and rinsing are completed. Food contact surfaces need to be completed before preparing the food. If you are interested in learning more, keep watching this video.
