Technology


At the foundation of these products is a biosurfactant based API having a primary function of sanitizing different Fruits and Vegetables pre-harvest, post-harvest and prior to consumption in a household. The compositions, on the whole, have properties of an amphiphile having resemblance to an emulsifying agent which solubilizes hydrophobic insoluble pesticides, toxins and unwanted chemicals from the surface of different produce. Another property of the composition is that it lowers the surface tension of water from 72 mN/m to around 32-35 mN/m, thus reducing the adherence of chemicals or any other material and micro-organisms. This helps in lowering the angle of contact of the foreign substance and biomolecule. A novel property of the product is that it acts on the pathogens by disrupting their cellular membrane thus eventually inhibiting their growth and eliminating them from the surface. As a result of all this, the oxidation process is postponed extending the shelf-life of fruits and vegetables.

Why Wash


Here’s the Fact:

  • Appx. 78 million food borne illnesses are reported each year
  • Symptoms include vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea
  • Appx. 5,000 deaths occur each year
  • Up to 20 sets of hands touch our food before it even arrives at the supermarket
  • Less than 1/10th of 1% fruits and vegetables are tested for food safety and pesticide level.
  • Most of our fruits and vegetables are waxed carnauba and other petroleum based waxes are mixed with fungicides, chemicals.

Some of the studies show that pesticide can cause health problems such as kidney damage, cancer, nerve damage, ADHD in kids Alzheimer’s Birth Defects, Breast Cancer, Depression, Fertility Issues, Immune disorders, Low IQ in kids, Respiratory problems and many other diseases. Farmers tendency to spray banned pesticides on vegetables poses grave health risks to consumers.

Impacts


Losses Due to Less Shelf life

About 30 per cent of the total fruits and vegetables produced are rendered unfit for consumption due to spoilage after harvesting as they are highly perishable commodities. As such, India incurs post-harvest fruits and vegetable losses worth over Rs 2 lakh crore each year

India’s major agricultural produce losses estimated at Rs 92,000 crore

About 16 percent of fruits of vegetables, valued at Rs 40,811 crore ($6 billion), were lost, according to an analysis of production data between 2012 and 2014, at wholesale prices, by the Central Institute of Post-Harvest Engineering and Technology, Ludhiana (Punjab).
