There are a number of food safety concerns that are unique to the preparation and serving of Sushi in foodservice. Sushi rice has the potential to become a breeding ground for pathogens if not properly prepared. In addition, many people prefer to eat Sushi at room temperature, which also makes refrigerated storage less desirable.

Proper preparation of acidified rice is therefore important to ensure customer safety for Sushi. To ensure that proper acidity levels have been reached, a pH meter such as the new ETI 8100 pH Plus is essential when testing each batch of rice. A maximum pH reading of 4.6 pH or below is generally considered safe. Sushi rice should be made fresh daily, ensuring the rice is cooled in shallow containers.

The new ETI 8100 Plus is a two-in-one, pH and temperature instrument which incorporates an easy to read LCD display. The 8100 indicates pH over the range of 0 to 14 pH with a resolution of 0.01 pH, and temperature over the range of -39.9 to 149.9°C, with a resolution of 0.1°C.

The 8100 Plus pH meter is manufactured by Electronic Temperature Instruments, in their West Sussex factory and is supplied as a complete kit (order code 860-820) which includes the instrument, pH and temperature probes, competitively priced at £120 plus VAT and carriage.
