Organic Spray To Clean Your Fruits and Veggies. It works!!
It always amazes me that in a country obsessed with cleanliness and germs, we in the United States still assume that a quick rinse under cold water is sufficient to clean our foods before eating. Think about it. Pesticides, fertilizers, dirt, road grit, molds, fungi, waxes – or worse! On your food! I believe that, like Australia, we in the US will soon make fruit and vegetable washes part of our daily routine.
Detergent residues on dishes have already been linked to specific health problems. I for one prefer to use time proven soap based technology to maintain my world. The human organism evolved to deal with the chemical combinations found in our natural world. For the past hundred years or so we have bombarded ourselves with new chemical combinations on our food, in our air, water and soil, and on our bodies.Why use questionable chemicals to clean off other questionable chemicals?
All the competing food washes I have checked out were made from the same detergent bases we are being told to keep off our bodies. Some are even touted as “organic”, while offering no substantiation to back up that claim. Perhaps they mean that it will work on organic foods. Or perhaps they mean organic in the organic chemistry sense – meaning that the chemicals are made from carbon atoms. Soap products have been safely used by humans for thousands of years – detergents for less than a hundred. Which would you (and/or your customers) prefer?
Vermont Soap, the certified organic soap manufacturer, is pleased to inform health conscious consumers that its 100% natural, certified organic fruit and veggie wash not only makes the food they consumer safer, but taste better too. Produce Magic is an eco-friendly alternative for avoiding contaminated produce and food-borne illnesses that strike 48 million Americans each year.
Recent testing done by Quadrants Scientific, Inc. found a quarter million microorganisms on unwashed produce purchased at grocery stores. The San Diego-based analytical laboratory conducted the research for the NBC San Diego TV station following passage last month of the federal Food Safety and Modernization Act.
The FDA will for the first time have a congressional mandate to inspect domestic food processing facilities. The new legislation significantly enhances FDA’s ability to oversee the millions of food products coming into the United States from other countries each year.
Perhaps one third of produce in America contains a lot of residual pesticides. Although buying organic does reduce exposure to harmful chemicals and pesticides found in conventionally farmed produce, it does not guarantee contaminant-free fruits and vegetables due to drift from conventional farms, contaminated soil and other factors.
“Rinsing fruits and vegetables with water will remove loose dirt and soil, but not the harmful residues often found on produce,” says Larry Plesent, Vermont Soap‘s Founder. “Pesticides used in growing produce are designed to be waterproof in order to remain effective after it rains. To successfully remove chemicals you need to use a surfactant to break them down. Produce Magic uses a natural, organic soap based surfactant to effectively remove residues,” adds Plesent.
Unlike other produce washes on the market today that are made from detergent bases, Produce Magic is 100% natural and certified organic. It is made from renewable and organic vegetable and botanical sources including saponified organic oils of coconut, olive and jojoba and a natural citrus essential oil blend with organic orange oil, organic aloe vera and rosemary extract.
“Detergent residues on dishes have already been linked to specific health problems, but soap products have been safely used by humans for thousands of years.” says Plesent. “Why use questionable chemicals to clean off other questionable chemicals?”
Produce Magic is also extraordinarily mild and hypoallergenic. This environment-friendly fruit and vegetable wash is biodegradable and free of artificial colors, fragrances, preservatives, animal products or gluten. Vermont Soap does not test on animals.
Produce Magic can be used a number of ways. It can be sprayed and rinsed or applied directly to foods or a brush for a scrub and rinse. For root crops and larger volumes, Vermont Soap suggests adding just enough Produce Magic to a container of water to work up a hint of foam. The actual percentage will vary with temperature and hardness of the water source.
