Can UV Air Purifiers be used to extend the shelf life of fresh fruits and vegetables?
The answer is unequivocally “Yes.”
A review published in the June 2019 “Trends of Food Science & Technology” highlighted a study entitled “Recent advances in detecting and regulating ethylene concentrations for shelf-life extension and maturity control of fruit.” The study examined the science of fruit and vegetable maturity and the impact of ethylene regulation on quality and shelf life. Ethylene detection and monitoring mechanisms were also described. Moreover, shelf life extending technologies for ethylene control were cataloged and evaluated.
