Fruits and Vegetables Washing


Fruits and Vegetables

An alarming percentage of fresh produce perishes long before it reaches the consumer. Washing removes bacteria, including E.coli, from the surface of fruits and vegetables. Washing with typical chemicals after harvest leave a bad taste/ smell leading to consumer rejection. Alstasan Silvox solution can be sprayed upon, or washed with, to ensure farm-fresh appearance, preserve original taste and quality even after prolonged storage during marketing. Anti-ageing property of silver extends shelf life of fruits and vegetables.


ALSTASAN SILVOX (Silver Hydrogen Peroxide based Biodegradable Fruit Disinfectant) manifests to be an efficient disinfectant that aids in addressing the following areas of concern involved in the washing of fruits and vegetables. Silver has an anti-senescence property that increases their shelf life. 

Conventional disinfectants fail to protect against re-exposure to pathogens, but silver H2O2 guarantees a long lasting protection from microbes all along the delivery chain.
