What Are Yellow Chopping Boards Used For?
Yellow chopping boards are used for preparing cooked meats, including beef, pork, poultry, and other non-oceanic animal produce. They can be found in many professional establishments to reduce the risk of cross-contamination between ingredients that otherwise could lead to serious illness.
Why do we Use Different Coloured Chopping Boards?
We use different coloured chopping boards to prevent cross-contamination. It should be noted that cross-contamination doesn’t refer to exposure to harmful bacteria, though. The term cross-contamination also applies to the transmittance of allergen residue that can cause severe allergic reactions. The standard colouring system states that yellow chopping boards should be used for preparing cooked meats only and that purple chopping boards should be used for allergens. But as long as you have a designated coloured chopping board for one group of ingredients each, you can reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
What is the Best Thickness for A Yellow Chopping Board?
There isn’t necessarily a “best thickness” when it comes to chopping boards. But here at Plastic Chopping Boards, we offer a range of thicknesses based on your requirements. Our thinnest commercial chopping boards begin at a thickness of 12mm and range up to 25mm.
How do You Properly Clean Yellow Chopping Boards?To properly clean yellow chopping boards, you should apply boiling water to their surfaces. This will kill any bacteria that may still be present after use and prevent the likelihood of mould forming if the board isn’t cleaned properly. We ensure our boards are heat-resistant and can withstand boiling streams of water inside a dishwasher without warping. But if you’d rather clean your chopping boards by hand, we recommend wearing a pair of thick washing-up gloves, dousing your chopping board in boiling water, and scrubbing. This will kill the bacteria and remove the remaining residue.
