Walk-in cold rooms are considered by many people in the food industry to be perfect storage facilities for both fresh and prepared food items. if so, why do fruit, vegetables and herbs not last long in refrigeration?
Simple fact is that fruit, vegetables and herbs give off ethylene gas, which gas is required for growth in the soil, but after harvesting it is still being produced. As the gas is now being produced in a closed environment, it drifts around and ripens the fruit, vegetables and herbs, thus shortening the shelf-life thereof.
Is there a solution?
Polar Africa humidity and bacteria control filters can keep fruit, vegetables and herbs fresh for 3 weeks and longer by removing the ethylene gas from cold rooms!
