Israeli Invention Will Keep Your Produce Fresh


The Food Protector, made by Phresh Organics, may increase the shelf life of fruits and vegetables up to three times without synthetic chemicals

You know you’ve forgotten about your fruit and veggies or have shoved them to the back of the fridge when they have lost their “Crunch Factor”. Now, you won’t have to resort to making soups because the celery isn’t crunchy, or apple pie because they’ve gone wrinkly (maybe that’s a bad example… it’s always a good time to make apple pie)!

According to Haaretz:

“A new product in development by an Israeli company located in China promises to increase the shelf life of fruits and vegetables up to three times without any synthetic chemicals.
The Food Protector, made by Phresh Organics, uses natural essential oils to protect produce from the bacteria and fungi that cause spoilage. The company, which is trying to finance production through the Kickstarter crowdfunding website, is based on research conducted by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the University of Florida. It uses a microencapsulated powder made of essential oil extracts derived from natural sources like oregano, mustard, mint and other plants.”
