I don’t know about you but I seem to throw away a lot of produce that I couldn’t eat fast enough before it spoiled. I like to do my grocery shopping once a week and I love salads. So often I buy what I think is the most fresh and will last through the week. I hate when I go to my veggie draw on Wednesday and find that some of the items I bought didn’t even last a few days. I recently found Bluapples®.
Bluapples® help prolong the life of produce by absorbing and neutralizing the ethylene gas buildup. Ethylene gas is given off by all living plants, especially fruits, vegetables and flowers, and acts as a chemical signal to speed up the ripening process.
There are three key elements to long produce life: a) temperature – keeping produce cold; b) humidity – using vented plastic bags to keep a moist, but not wet environment; c) ethylene gas management – using the Bluapples®. Disruption of any one of these elements will cause premature spoilage.
I have been using the Bluapples® since I moved into my new apartment so about a month and I really have seen a difference in how long my produce stays fresh. I like to clean and get my product all ready to use the day I buy it. That way when I want a salad everything is ready and it only takes a couple minutes to get it ready or grab it to bring to work. So last Saturday I cleaned and tore up some lettuce, onions, mushrooms and a few other items. I ate my last salad on Friday – everything was still fresh – no brown lettuce! How nice it was to finish what I bought instead of tossing it.
What I like about the Bluapples® the best is their great price $9.95 for a pack of two which last about 3 months. What a great value. I know I have thrown away more than $10 a week in product often! You can buy your own Bluapples® HERE online.
