FOOD SAFE CLEANING COMPOSITION

Back~round of the Invention United States patent 4,620,937 discloses a liquid mixture of distilled, stabilized citric oil;
vinegar and water. The citric oil typically includes distilled D-Limonene, at a minimum of 50% and pref-erably at the 80% level; fatty acids and a non-ionic detergent for increased cleaning effectiveness. This material is said to be suitable for heavy duty cleaning and to be non-toxic dnd non-irritating.
While the patentee characterizes this formulation as being suitable for ingestion without harm, it is acknowledged that the formulation can be an eye irritant upon repeated long term contact. Further-more, this patentee recommends the addition of AloeVera juice to the formulation to protect the user's hands during use and to reduce the risk of skin irritation.
In United States patent 4,808,330 there is disclosed a non-toxic formulation for cleaning fruits and vegetables which comprises sodium chloride, an alcohol and coconut oil in aqueous solution.
It i5 an object of the present invention to provide a cleaning composition that is safe for the cleaning of areas that come into contact with food and yet provides cleaning efficacy equivalent to MS #1663 . . .

~ 8 ~

cleaners containing harsh chemicals that are toxic if ingested.

Summary of the Invention ~he present inven~ion is an essentially aqueous, non-toxic, cleaning composition which comprises:
a) cold pressed citrus oil;
b) an alkali metal carbonate and/or an alkali metal bicarbonate in sufficient quantity to maintain the pH of the composition at a level of from 7.5 to 11;
c) an emulsifier-surfactant system comprising:
i. a mono fatty acid ester of polyoxy-ethylene sorbitan;
ii. a mixture of ethoxylai~d mono and diglycerides of stearic, palmitic and myristic acids;
iii. a tartaric acid ester of a mono or diglyceride; and iv. sodium lauryl sulfate;
d) ethanol; and e) a minor amount of propylene glycol.

Description of the Invention The present invention is predicated on the discovery that a highly effective cleaning composition can be prepared using ingredients that are suitable for ingestion by humans to thereby provide a powerful cleaner which is suitable for cleaning foods and surfaces that come into contact with foods.

MS #1663 The cleaning composition is based upon cold pressed citrus oil as a cleaning and fragrance enhancing agent. This material is obtained by an ambient pressure extraction of the citrus fruits' peel~ Various citrus fruits such as oranges, grape-fruit, limes and lemons are suitable sources for this in~redient. Lemon oil is preferred for use in the present formulation which will typically contain from 0.0~ to lO.0 weight percent (preferably 0.3 to 1.4~) of the citrus oil.
The composition also contains an alkali mekal carbonate and/or bicarbonate to control the composi-tion's pH as well as to provide a source of alkalinity for the saponification of fatty oils. Typically, there will be present a total of up to about 1.0% of one or a combination of both of these ai~aiine materials in sufficient amount to cause the cleaniny composition to have a pH of from 7.0 to 11. In a preferred embodiment, there is present a combination Of sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate wherein the weight ratio of carbona~e to bicarbonate is from 1:9 parts carbonate to 1:10 parts bicarbonate. The amounts and ratio of carbonate and bicarbonate are preferably selscted so as to provide a composition having a pH of from 8.5 to 10.4 which is regarded as particularly safe for contact with human tissue.
In addition to the citrus oil and carbonate/
bicarbonate, the present cleaning composition contains an emulsifier/surfactant system comprising:

i. a mono fatty acid ester of polyoxyethylene sorbitan, MS #1663 . . .

..

2~2~

ii. a mixture of ethoxylated mono and diglycerides of stearic, palmitic and myristic acids, iii. a tartaric acid ester of a mono or diglyceride, and 5iv. sodium lauryl sulfate.

It is to be understood that a mixture of two or more ingredients from each of groups i, ii or iii above may be used without departing from the ~cope of this invention. The emulsifier/surfactant system ~o which typically makes up from 0.15 to ~.0 ~preferably 2.0 to 4.0) weight percent of the cleaning composition, serves the purpose of allowing the finished composition to wet out, penetrate and lift the soil from the surface being cleaned. It also emulsifies the soil to keep it in solution so that it can be ~lpeU Up with minimal, if any, redeposition. In addition to the performance attributes, this system is key to the physical stability of the finished composition which is a microemulsion which requires sufficient levels of certain emulsifiers to keep it clear and prevent phase separation. More particularly, the sodium lauryl sulfate in the system provides wetting, penetrating and soil lifting attributes. The other three ingredients are all emulsifiers which suspend the lifted soils. More particularly, the preferred fatty acid ester of polyoxyethylene (where the fat~y acid can contain from 12 to 18 carbon atoms) is prepared by esterification of sorbitol with primarily lauric fatty acid under conditions which cause the splitting of water from the sorbitol. The material is condensed with approximately 20 moles of ethylene MS #1663 2 ~

oxide per mole of sorbitol to give it water solubility and can be obtained under the trade name Tween~, from ICI America Inc. This material will normally make up from 0.05 to 80 (preferably 50 to 65) weight percent 5 of the emulsifier/surfactant system.
The ethoxylated mono or diglyceride are charac-terized by polyoxyethylene mono and diglycerides of stearic, palmitic and myristic acids. This material, which can be obtained under the tradename Durfax~, from Durkee, is normally present in an amount of from 0.05 to 20.0 (preferably 4 to 7) weight percent of the emulsifier/surfactant system.
The tartaric acid ester of a mono or diglyceride, which is normally used in an amount of from 0.05 to 20 (preferably 4 to 7) weight percent of the emulsi-fier/surfactant system is preferaDly a diacetyl tartaric acid ester of a monoglyceride and can be obtained under the trade name Panodan~ from Grinsted Products Inc.
In addition, there is included in the emulsifier surfactant system ~rom 0.05 to 40.0 weigh~ percent (preferably 25 to 35) weight percent based on the emulsifier/surfactant of sodium lauryl sulfate which serves as a wetting agent to penetrate greasyr oily soils and help to lift them from the surface beingcleaned.
Additional essential ingredients of the present cleaning composition are from 0.5 to 15.0 (preferably 2.5 to 7.0) weight percent ethanol which serves the dual function of drying agent and stabilizing agent to assist in maintaining the clarity of the finished composition. In addition, there is included Q.05 to MS #1663 -6- 2~2~5 2.0 (preferably 0.2 to 0.8) weig~lt percent propylene glycol which acts primarily as a cosolvent to aid in the wetting out and lifting of soils. It also imparts some shine to the substrate and since it is a humectant, it contributes to a soft hand feel.
In addition to the above described essential ingredients, there can be added minor amounts of non-essential materials such as fragrances, preser-vatives and dyes provided that they are selected from those which are regarded as safe for use on food bearing surfaces.
The present invention is further illustrated by the following examples in which all percentages are by weight of the entire formulation unless otherwise specified.

From the data of Table 1, it can be determined that the formulation prepared as described in Example I has cleaning power equivalent to that of Fantastik~.
A difference of 3 to 5 ml with 15 to 25 wipes i5 not a significant difference in this tes~. This was confirmed via a consumer usage panel in which typical consumers compared a formula similar to that of Example I to Fantastik~. Results from this study showed that consumers do not perceive a difference in cleaning performance between the composition of the present invention and Fantastik~.
