You may not even realize it, but much of the food you already have in your refrigerator has been exposed to activated oxygen, or ozone, before you even bring it home. That’s because food producers utilize commercial-grade ozone generators to treat fruits, vegetables, meat, and dairy before goods head out to market. Companies like Ozone Safe Food, Inc. market solutions for large food and beverage companies because the technology is effective in sanitizing both the food itself and the environment it is kept in. With the increase recently of outbreaks involving E coli, Salmonella, and Listeria, food producers are embracing activated oxygen as a solution to avoiding the sale of contaminated goods. What is referred to scientifically as the “microbiological quality” just means how fresh your food is, free from mold, bacteria, and other microbes. This was determined by a study, and subsequent fact sheet, conducted by the Department of Food Science and Technology at Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
Their conclusions regarding activated oxygen for commercial use mirror the results our experts arrived at when testing BerryBreeze™ for use in your refrigerator. Activated oxygen is a powerful oxidant that attaches itself to microbes, eradicates them, and then converts into harmless oxygen, all within about twenty minutes. What you end up with is a clean, odor-free refrigerator and food that stays fresher 2-3 times longer.
At BerryBreeze™, we believe that if it’s good enough for the large food producers to help them avoid lawsuits, its definitely worthwhile to the consumer to have the same technology in the home to protect their food and their families. And where the commercial solutions can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars, involve complex delivery systems, and even require converting it into liquid to do the job in the processing plant or factory, we want to make it as easy and affordable for folks as possible. Just pop in four D batteries and leave our hand-sized BerryBreeze™ on the top shelf of your refrigerator or other storage area (we’ve even heard of hockey moms throwing them in their kids’ hockey bags to kill the odor up in Canada). No chemicals. No filters. No hassle. Whether its fruits and veggies, grains, or other organic material, our timed sequenced release of activated oxygen is going to keep your food around longer than you’re typically used to.
