Scientists Find A Genius Way To Preserve Food

It was on a drive through verdant farmland in California that Apeel CEO James Roger heard a story on the radio about global hunger. “According to the numbers, we were producing more than enough food to feed people,” Roger recalled.

After researching the issue, he realized spoilage was at the root of the problem. In 2012, he founded Apeel Sciences, which aims to extend the shelf-life of food and reduce waste. Rather than relying on chemical agents to preserve fresh produce, it develops a special protective coating to slow down the rotting process. Also, Apeel says the process is doubling the shelf life of fruits and vegetables and can triple it inside their lab. It aims to extend the life of some produce by four times.

Food typically rots when moisture exits, oxygen gets in and mold takes over. To prevent this, Apeel takes the skins, seeds and pulp of homogeneous fruits or veggies — such as grapes from a winery or tomato skins from a ketchup factor — and presses out an oil rich in fat lipids. The company turns the oil into a colorless, odorless, tasteless powder that is tailored for each type of produce to which it will be applied.

This is fascinating! Check out this video below explaining the idea and process!
