Details of ethylene adsorbent sachet
Fresh Vegetables, Fruits & Flowers post harvesting release ethylene gas and water vapour. The ethylene
gas and water vapour produced work as a catalyst to the ripening process which in turn causes faster spoilage and microbial damage.
PECTINGUARD sachets are the most effective way to inhibit weight loss, improve quality and shelf life.
Sachets are filled with a special composition mixture of zeolite powder and potassium permanganate that
causes ethylene &
moisture absorption while simultaneously causing volatile bacterial inhibition (VBI).
Ethylene causes shattering, deterioration and ripening on the other hand excess moisture is likely to speed up decay and the development of mould and fungus either during the storage/transportation period or after removal from the packaging.
Keep It fresh Sachets can be easily placed with fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers. The sachets work in
multiple ways to protect and extend shelf life of fresh produce. Keep it fresh sachets contain ethylene
absorbers in a breathable Tyvek & Dupont membrane that can work under high humidity conditions.
PECTINGUARD Sachets are available in different gram sizes from 2, 5 and 10, gram according to
customer & volumetric requirement.
How ethylene adsorbent sachet works
Absorption of Ethylene – The ethylene produced by the fresh produce is absorbed by the special minerals in the sachet that selectively absorb ethylene molecules.
Oxidation of Ethylene – The Ethylene is attracted towards the media in the sachet and gets oxidized to water and carbon dioxide.
Absorption of moisture – The excessive moisture produced within the package is also absorbed which in turn inhibits microbial growth within the package.
The option of having a Natural Vaporising Bio Inhibitor is available with these sachets. The active ingredient is a natural plant extract, which has the capability to inhibit microbial growth in its presence.
Simply place the recommended number of sachets in the fruit and vegetable conventional corrugated
boxes or export packing. PECTINGUARD sachet/pouch absorbs ethylene gas from the pack and create a
bacteria free environment to extend the shelf life of packed fresh fruit and vegetables. Doses would
depend upon the kind of fresh produce and the quantity of ethylene produced.
