Keeping our food fresh and more resistant to spoilage got potentially easier these days. People from Fenugreen came up with a very good alternative which is already a sales success, the Freshpaper. This magical biodegradable paper uses organic ingredients like spices and botanicals to keep foods fresh two to four times longer than usual. It comes a little bit smaller than square paper towels. The organic ingredients that makes it up prevent spoiling by inhibiting bacterial and fungal growth also hindering enzymes that cause over-ripening in produce.
The use is simple, just place a sheet in your storage underneath the fruits and veggies. It will keep them fresh for longer.
Freshpaper emits a maple-like scent. It comes from one of the organic ingredients that the paper is made from. It’s fenugreek, used also in maple syrup flavoring. When the scent fades, it’s time for replacement. But you can always compost or recycle the used one.
