Do you wake up on some mornings thinking about what to eat for breakfast? You need something healthy or maybe you are someone who regularly loves fresh fruit or vegetables in the morning. Some daily issues we are faced with is cost and shelf life of our fresh produce. Some produce stays fresh longer than a cup of raspberries, and some of us that enjoy these with cereal or pancakes frequently, find that it can’t stay fresh a long time. Buying in bulk is not a good option in some cases.
Maybe you heard of ozone treatment or currently use an ozone generator to wash your produce. It is not only extending shelf life up to three weeks on some produce depending on conditions and storage, but it removes bacteria, viruses, E. coli, and your fruits and vegetables taste fresh. “Research and commercial applications have indicated that ozone can replace chlorine with more benefits. In 1997, ozone was self-affirmed as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) as a disinfectant for foods by an independent panel of experts sponsored by EPRI. This self-affirmation was timely for the produce industry in light of the President’s Fruit and Vegetable Safety Initiative. The produce industry is successfully using ozone all over the world.” (Ozone Safe Food Technologies, Inc.) In 2000, FDA and USDA approval was granted.
To treat your produce with ozone, fill your sink with water and place the Aqua-6 diffuser stone 2 to 4 inches deep in sink. Place the fruit and/or vegetables to be treated in the water and operate the Aqua-6 for 15 minutes by selecting Function #4 (Average sized sinks should be half-full). Follow the same procedure above to wash your raw food and meat. For utensils, rinse off food debris and treat in clean water with ozone for 15 minutes. Our Aqua-6 Multi Purpose Ozone Generator is our best seller and practical to use for many other applications like ozonating drinking water, dental hygiene, odor removal, and making natural liquid oil. It can be used with fish tank, spas, hot tubs, and wading pools up to 500 gallons.
