AvoFresco is a white powder, composed of all natural elements, which stops the oxidation process so that fresh-cut produce and some seafood can last longer at home and on the shelf! AvoFresco is FDA approved, GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) and Kosher certified. AvoFresco does NOT contain sulfites nor other harmful substances and is absolutely safe for you to consume.
AvoFresco keeps the natural texture and color of fresh-cut produce and some seafood, for up to 15 days, without altering the flavor.
AvoFresco does not influence microbial growth. Testing shows that a slowing of microbial growth is somewhat achieved but not significant.
How is AvoFresco used?
Freshly cut produce is typically dipped in an AvoFresco solution (30g of AvoFresco per kg of produce). Delicate fruit such as bananas, avocados, or mangos, can be treated using a spray solution, to avoid damage or bruising. In addition, in certain applications, AvoFresco can be used as a dry ingredient (i.e. guacamole), where it is mixed directly into the food.
* You must start with high quality produce in order to yield quality cut fruit.
* Proper sanitation practices should be implemented in your fresh-cut process.
* A sharp cutting blade is necessary for optimal results.
Does AvoFresco change the taste of food?
No, AVOFRESCO does not cause any change to the taste of produce or seafood it is applied to.
How long does AvoFresco last?
AvoFresco is available in a dry, powered form. When properly stored away from excess light or moisture, AvoFresco has an 18 month shelf life. When used on produce and seafood, AvoFresco will keep products fresh for up to 15 days in a refrigerated environment.
