The patented design is inspired by sustainable food practices, and while we’re proud of the design, we’re even prouder of the science behind it. The BerryBreeze is the first device of its kind to be proven effective by independent laboratory tests. 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.
The BerryBreeze provides an uncomplicated solution, based on science and nature, packaged in efficient technology. Activated oxygen (O3), both protects the upper atmosphere from radiation and purifies and sanitizes the air in our lower atmosphere. In a refrigerator or storage space, activated oxygen neutralizes bacteria, mould, and other microbes by inhibiting ethylene gas that triggers decay. This keeps food in a “living” stage 2-3 times longer than normal, staying fresh and odour free.
Activated oxygen consists of three oxygen atoms. It is created either when ultraviolet light or electricity break down the oxygen molecule into two single oxygen atoms, each of which quickly attach to two more oxygen atoms (O2). It is an unstable gas whose half-life is approximately 30 minutes. While stable, the third oxygen molecule fights to break free, destroying polluting organic molecules by “oxidizing” them. The third oxygen atom attaches, eliminating pollutants, effectively disinfecting and deodorizing.
The BerryBreeze is battery-operated and uses a patented timing sequence that releases a consistent level of activated oxygen. In two studies commissioned by the FDA, internationally-recognized activated oxygen experts Dr. Dee Graham and Dr. Rip Rice determined that limited regular exposure to activated oxygen posed no risk to humans and enhanced the shelf-life of other organic materials. It is equally effective in refrigerators, practically all storage units, and small, uninhabited areas.
Using the BerryBreeze also has a positive effect on the planet. Food waste is a large component of solid waste and a large portion of methane emissions. The BerryBreeze is the clear choice for both home and global wellness.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I store my fresh fruit and vegetables?
One of the biggest contributors to wilting and aging in vegetables (especially leafy greens) is loss of moisture. The air in your refrigerator tends to be very dry so higher moisture produce like Kale, Spinach, or Lettuce are best stored in high moisture places like a Crisper/Vegetable bin. Put the BerryBreeze on the top shelf in your fridge. The O3 oxygen needs to get to your food so remove the packaging (or buy it without in the first place) on foods such as cucumbers, whole lettuces or tomatoes. If the food is bought in plastic containers, such as strawberries or mushrooms, remove the lid or make sure there is sufficient access for the air to get through and not airtight.
How long will my BerryBreeze last?
If our present experience is any indication, forever. Okay, we’re exaggerating of course, but we do have units at our headquarters that are still going strong after five years of use, and they don’t show signs of tapping out any time soon. When you create a product that’s built around the laws of nature, it’s a product that’s built to last.
How is the BerryBreeze different from other products on the market?
The BerryBreeze keeps your food fresh naturally while working to address our society’s food waste and pollution problem. Other products use toxic chemicals and even carcinogens to help extend the life of your food. The BerryBreeze is the only product on the market to use a superior patented technology that produces activated oxygen. Activated oxygen is nature’s way of cleaning the air and removing toxins and pollution from the environment, and we use it because it neutralizes ethylene gas while fighting germs, mildew, refrigerator mould and other harmful microbes in your fridge. Unlike other products, the technology behind the BerryBreeze has been thoroughly researched and tested, and that makes it a proven way to keep food fresh, safe and delicious for much longer than you can with refrigeration alone. Best of all, we do it all without the need for absorption packs or disposable filters, so you won’t have to put any time, energy or extra money into maintaining your BerryBreeze.
