tl;dr Do you know where to buy, food contact PAA in packaging ≤5kg and concentration ≤5% ?

I was going to buy Peroxyacetic Acid that already have long history of use has been approved by EU, but it is next to unavailable in UK's professional online shops.

Not many shop sells PAA that supposed to be used for food contact surfaces. But finding one smaller than 25kg is impossible! I would need only 500g or ml, considering the dilution., but I could live with anything up to 5kg Then again only availability of small containers is with sellers not providing info that them products can be used with food contact surfaces.

I need specifically this product, for it's proven no rinse application and being food contact authorized.



I never used this, and I don't think brewers would, considering it forms acetic acid after use...

I found this, but it is 5 gallons: https://www.brewcitysolutions.com/product/san-o2-gard-peroxyacetic-acid-sanitizer/

    PAA is a sanitiser used quite frequently by professional brewers. – Frazbro Dec 22 '19 at 22:04
  • I understand, but there is acetic acid produced by it, shouldn't it affect the taste? – Philippe Dec 23 '19 at 13:26

    If there were a notable acetic flavour, do you think professional brewers would continue to use it? – Frazbro Dec 23 '19 at 21:42
