The demand for antioxidant solutions for lettuce increases

FOOD freshly, a company specialized in the production of natural antioxidants, develops antioxidant products that improve the shelf life and quality of fruits and vegetables used by IV range processors. Its powder solutions mixed with water prevents the oxidation process of food after it is cut or peeled. In recent months, the company has observed that there is a particularly high demand for solutions for lettuce.

"Demand is particularly focused on the Romain and Iceberg varieties, which present an added difficulty for many IV range processors," stated Benjamin Singh, the director of the technical sales department at FOOD freshly. "The processors that contact us are concerned because this type of salad develops a pink coloration that is driving them up the wall. These salads usually come packaged in a modified atmosphere or even in a vacuum to reduce this coloration. However, this process does not minimize oxidation. Some lettuce varieties are even more problematic and processors require additional protection to reduce low-quality products that lead to customer complaints. FOOD freshly offers this security, even without needing to use the aforementioned special packaging," stated Alberto Labrado, the company's sales manager.

Quick immersion in the FOOD freshly solution prevents the lettuce's browning for up to 8 days so producers don't need to use any special packaging, which is no longer a prerequisite for offering this type of food in the IV range.

"FOOD freshly products do not modify the flavor of the products and are better than simply using acid to prevent oxidation. They do not contain preservatives or allergens or other problematic and unhealthy ingredients such as sulfites. Many of the solutions are even accepted for organic production, with ORGANIC certifications. The company offers solutions for lettuce, apple, avocado, and many other foods used in IV range."

This year Fruit Logistica will return to Berlin and FOOD freshly will be present at the fair in stand 21 F-04 for anyone who wants to make a personal appointment. FOOD freshly is happy to have the opportunity to participate at the fair again, present all its innovations, and meet in person with its business partners and potential customers again.
