When it comes to the food and beverage industry, health is the number one concern of all its companies. Alliant Metals has been working with companies with these services to give the product that not only gets the job done but is safe for anyone using it. Stainless steel products are most used for food and beverage companies for a number of reasons, but here are a few important points.
   Nontoxic and can be created into nonabsorbent surfaces. One of the most important aspects of stainless steel as a product is that it will not be absorbed into the food or vice versa. Stainless steel can have finishes and polishes applied to surfaces to avoid cross contamination and the negative impact it could have on customers.
   Increases sanitization. Metal surfaces with protective seals such as polishing means there is a decrease in cross contamination of foods because of how easy it is to clean these services. Having a flat, nonporous surface means bacteria and disease is less likely to be a problem in a cooking for food preparation environment.
   Does not change taste of product. Depending on the metal being used, it can affect the way a food tastes, and is often described as a metallic flavor. Stainless steel can often prevent this from happening when maintained and produced correctly for the food and beverage industry.
   Durability. Stainless steel being corrosion resistant and with added finishes can enhance normal wear. These surfaces being easy to clean mean they maintain well and have less of a chance of disintegrating.
