Extend the shelf life of fresh fruits and vegetables with Ethylene Absorbers. Ethylene Absorbers are manufactured from natural zeolites. The absorbers increase the shelf life and safety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and seasonal flowers. When placed in food packaging, the absorber removes ethylene gas through oxidation. This process ensures the freshness and quality of the fruits and vegetables in transit and storage.

After harvesting, fresh vegetables, fruits, and flowers release ethylene gas and water vapour. The ethylene gas and water vapour catalyse the ripening process, causing faster deterioration and microbial damage. Hence, ethylene absorbers are the most efficient way to prevent weight loss while improving quality and shelf life. They are loaded with a specific composition blend of zeolite powder and potassium permanganate that absorbs ethylene and moisture while inhibiting volatile bacterial growth.

Ethylene causes deterioration and ripening, whilst excess moisture is likely to accelerate decay and the formation of mould and fungus during storage and transportation or after removal from the packaging. Ethylene absorbers go well with fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers as they are non-toxic, chemically inert and can be disposed of as ordinary waste. They safeguard and increase the shelf life of fresh fruit in various ways and are offered in multiple sizes and types based on customer and volumetric requirements.

At Stream Peak, we are committed to providing food businesses of all types and scales with high-quality and effective packaging solutions. We ensure to comply with standards and provide solutions that enable companies to achieve high returns on investment. Our Ethylene Absorbers have four main applications:

  • Control of the atmosphere for storage
  • Slowing down the ripening of fruits and vegetables
  • Absorbing ethylene during the shipping of agricultural produce
  • Reduce food wastage
