Research strenghten once again wood antibacterial properties

Monday June 6th, 2016

Recent research published on peer review journal Food Protection Trends confirmed, once again, wooden pallets’ anti-bacterial properties, especially if compared to plastic.

This study conducted by Boersig and Cliver (M.R. Boersig, D.O. Cliver, The Role of Pallets In Microbial Food Safety,  Food Protection Trends,  October 2010, Vol.30, No.1, Pages 576-579, International Association for Food Protection) states that the number of bacteria decreases considerably when they come in contact with wood surfaces, while it  multiplies on plastic surfaces.
