Does VegieFresh Really Work?
Extending the shelf life of food, particularly fresh ingredients, is a big challenge for households. VegieFresh is a product that claims to keep produce fresh and edible for longer. It promises to help reduce waste and spoilage by increasing the shelf life of vegetables and fruits by as much as 50%. This is said to allow the extended storage of food by up to three months, hence allowing consumers to save thousands of dollars a year on spoilage. The VegieFresh works by housing produce inside a clamshell package made out of natural mineral mix (with zeolites) that absorb ethylene gas, preventing the accelerated spoilage of fruit and vegetables that it comes into contact with. To use, the fruits and vegetables is placed inside the VegieFresh before storing in the fridge.
