The E.G.G. – keep your fruit and veg fresher, longer


The Ethylene Gas Guardian – or E.G.G. – keeps your fruit and veg fresh and tasty by absorbing the natural ethylene gas that they emit. Ethylene is a ripening gas which is a natural part of the growth process, but if there’s too much of it in a closed fridge environment it makes surrounding stuff go off quicker (tip: that’s why you should never store bananas, which are ethylene emitting ninjas, near to any other ripe fruit). Priced from $4.99 (or £3.99).

 The answer to this puzzle is most likely in what else is in your fridge. Many fruits and vegetables, especially if they have been damaged, give off ethylene gas as they ripen. Much of the produce in your refrigerator is sensitive to the presence of even very low levels of ethylene gas. The refrigerator acts as a trap for the ethylene gas given off by the generating varieties, allowing it to build up to damaging levels. Although not hazardous to humans, the ethylene gas leads to the early aging and rotting of your produce.
