What's in your Ice?Tony He, Senior Director - Business Development, Franke Foodservice Systems Asia

On a long hot summer’s day, nothing should be more refreshing than an ice-cold drink, but have you ever considered that the ice in your drink may not be as safe as you had imagined?

Ice contamination is everywhere - from mold and algea to yeast and bacteria, ice contamination is real.

Ice contamination spreads easily starting with the growth of mold and algae growth inside of the ice machine which provides amiable temperature and humidity. Further intervention from human hands in the transfer of ice from the ice machine using ice buckets and scoops whether to ice holding bins or to your cups directly further adds to ice contamination.

As a result, there are frequent reports of contaminated ice impacting food safety. Most solutions in place to keep ice machines and thereby ice clean are ineffective due to the lack of systematic ice safety protection. From the point that ice is formed to when it is either scooped or dispensed into your glass, the ice would have been exposed to several contamination points as shown in the diagram above.
