Irradiation has been accepted as an effective food safety method for various foods over 50 years. Gamma rays from radioactive isotopes of Cobalt 60 or Cesium 137 are used for food irradiation applications. The main concern about food irradiation is the detection of these irradiated foods and also loss of detection of irradiation through the storage period. Photo Stimulated Luminescence (PSL) is one of the physical techniques that can be used for irradiation detection. The aim of this study is to analyze the behavior of PSL signals of irradiated spices with respect to storage period, storage temperature, origin and type of samples.
