A University of Illinois study found that NSF-certified Northern Hard Rock Maple cutting boards kill bacteria. Data concluded that application of NSF-certified Boos Block Mystery Oil and Board Cream on the boards created an antimicrobial, hydrophobic surface that decreased their surface bacteria to a “clean level” in three hours without using recommended board cleaning procedures. The manufacturer still suggests following proper board cleaning steps to maintain the surface.
