Food is one of the essential factors in sustaining human life. Food safety must be ensured to protect human health. Both thermal and non-thermal methods are available means of ensuring food safety. In the non-thermal methods disinfection applications using traditional chemical solutions have an important place. There are many chemicals having been used in the food industry as disinfectant from the past to the present. Since various negative factors associated with the type of the chemicals used such as deformation of the food structure, corrosion on food contact surfaces and the presence of chemical residues after disinfection, alternatives to traditional disinfectants have been investigated. In this context, the use of electrolyzed water as a disinfectant is getting common in many countries. A lot of research has been conducted on electrolyzed water in recent years since it is not only non-toxic, easy to use and cheap but also safe and environmentally friendly. This review contains information about electrolyzed water, types of electrolyzed water and their mechanism of action as well as areas of use and application in the food industry.
