Fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers release ethylene gas into the air after they are harvested. This gas (also known as the “death or ripening hormone”) decreases the shelf life of fruits, summer crops and flowers from the time they are harvested until they are offered for sale in the market.
Shrinking, shriveling, molding, rotting, developing brown spots, softening, emitting unpleasant odor, sprouting, changing in color, tasting bitter (for example, carrots), and deteriorating citrus peels are some of the effects of ethylene gas. The suitable solution for controlling the rotting process is to use Ethylene Absorber Sachet.
