The Science of BerryBreeze™
BerryBreeze™ is the first device of its kind to be proven effective by independent laboratory tests. It’s a machine that’s inspired by sustainable food practices, and while we’re proud of our design, we’re even prouder of the science behind it. To help you get an idea of what BerryBreeze™ is, how it works and why it’s so important, we thought we’d shed some light on the scientific principles behind the BerryBreeze™ revolution.
How Good Food Goes Bad
Food doesn’t just age. It’s attacked. Microscopic organisms in the air like bacteria, fungi and refrigerator mold find their way onto your foods and slowly break them down at the cellular level. These microbes are literally eating your food. As they do, they multiply and produce toxic waste products.
At first, this process is invisible to the naked eye, but as the organisms continue to feast upon our refrigerated strawberries, chicken breasts and pasta leftovers, we begin to see the damage for ourselves. Foods wither and shrink. They become discolored and begin to smell. Green, black or fuzzy white mold colonies bloom. Some microbes are relatively harmless, but some can be deadly. And one thing’s for sure – once food goes bad, there’s no getting it back.
The Food Waste Epidemic
So what happens when your food finally crosses over to the dark side? You throw it out, of course. You wheel your garbage cans to the curb, and then a truck comes along to haul your trash away. Out of sight, out of mind, right? But the story isn’t over.
The EPA estimates that about 32.5% of the trash Americans throw away is recycled or composted. Around 12.5% is burned, and 55% ends up in landfills. At the dump, your food continues to decompose. It attracts rats and other rodents. The runoff from dumps and landfills can even make its way into groundwater, eventually finding its way into rivers, lakes and finally the ocean.
As foods decompose, they also produce methane gas, the second most commonly emitted greenhouse gas in the United States. Every year, landfills around the world produce an estimated 30 to 70 million tons of methane, and this contributes immensely to global warming.
As you can see, the foods you toss out every week can have a serious effect on the environment. Environmental stewardship starts at home, and living a truly sustainable lifestyle means doing your part to stop the food waste epidemic.
Oxygen to the Rescue
How does BerryBreeze™ solve these problems? Our machine uses activated oxygen to keep food fresh for longer, and when foods don’t expire before we have a chance to consume them, we cut down on food waste.
Activated oxygen is the same gas that protects the planet from the sun’s harmful UV rays. The BerryBreeze™ circulates pure activated oxygen through your refrigerator, helping to protect your foods from bacteria, refrigerator mold and other pathogens. By neutralizing these microbes, BerryBreeze’s™ patented technology extends the life of your foods. After all, foods that aren’t being attacked by colonies of mold and dangerous bacteria don’t decompose as quickly.
The result is a fridge full of foods that stay fresh longer and retain the nutrients that help you and your family live healthier lives. And without all of those microbes spoiling your foods, your fridge smells a lot better too. When you use BerryBreeze™ to protect your foods, you’re greeted by the clean smell of cool, fresh air every time you open your refrigerator door.
Patented and Proven
BerryBreeze™ uses patented technology and has been independently researched and reviewed. An independent study conducted by R&D Enterprises proved that the BerryBreeze™ is “very effective” in eliminating strong food odors and in extending the storage life of perishable foods inside your refrigerator. For the full reports, see the following white papers.
The Easiest Technology You’ll Ever Learn, The Freshest Food You’ll Ever Eat.
The BerryBreeze™ is a lightweight 9.1 oz device (5w x 2.5d x 5.2h inches), battery-operated oxygen generator, with no filters to clean, and no maintenance required. While generating oxygen, the LED on the front of the BerryBreeze™ glows green in color continuously. When in standby mode, the LED light blinks every 3.5 seconds. When the batteries are low the LED light turns red, suggesting it is time to replace the batteries. Batery ilfe is estimated at approximately 5 to 6 months, before requiring replacement. The BerryBreeze™ uses a microprocessor to control its automatic operating system. After your BerryBreeze™ is activated, it will generate oxygen continuously for the first 60-minutes of operation; then automatically switch to standby mode for 170-minutes. At the conclusion of the first standby mode period, the BerryBreeze™ will automatically activate itself to generate oxygen for 10-minutes. Then, it will repeat, again and again, a cycle of 230-minutes in standby mode and 10-minutes in generation mode until the batteries require replacement and you repeat the initial activation process by reassembling the upper half of the BerryBreeze™ with the lower half (battery compartment).
Step 1 Open the box and remove your BerryBreeze™ from the packaging material.
Step 2 Press both tabs on the sides of the BerryBreeze™ at the same time to separate the top half of the unit from the lower half (battery compartment). Insert four (4) “D” size batteries properly into the lower battery compartment of the BerryBreeze™ (Batteries not included). Firmly reattach the two (2) halves of the BerryBreeze™.
Step 3 Once the two (2) halves are securely attached, the light on the front of the BerryBreeze™ will glow solid green for about 1 hour, indicating the
BerryBreeze™ is activated. Following this mode, the light will blink green every 3.5 seconds to indicate the BerryBreeze™ is in the standby mode. Your BerryBreeze™ will automatically cycle between standby mode (blinking green) and active mode (solid green).
Step 4 Place the BerryBreeze™ on the top shelf inside your refrigerator. Do not remove the BerryBreeze™ from your refrigerator during operation,
except to replace the four (4) “D” size batteries about every 5 to 6 months (depending on quality and freshness). Batteries are not included.
