Belle Green Wise, a Japanese company, has developed Aura Pack that keeps vegetables and fruits fresh for months, by preventing the loss of moisture and eliminating excess CO2 buildup.
“Aura Pack has three features. The first concerns the fact that vegetables have a water content of at least 90%. As long as water isn’t lost, they stay crisp and fresh. If vegetables are wrapped in this film, it’s hard for water to evaporate. The second feature of this film is, it controls respiration. Like people, vegetables take in oxygen and release CO2. The more congenial the environment, the more stable this process is, making it harder for vegetables to get bruised. In a pack, it’s possible to create a congenial environment. The third feature of Aura Pack is, it resists condensation, so it’s hard for moisture to form. As I mentioned earlier, if vegetables don’t lose water, it’s hard for water droplets to form on the film.”
