Recently, an Australian organization known as Naturo Technologies has created a new technology called The Natavo Zero through which they can keep avocados absolutely fresh for at least 10 days without becoming brown and it is possible without using any chemicals, according to Mashable report.
Agricultural engineer Jeff Hastings who has invented this smart technology was once fed up seeing that every day a big amount of Avocados were wasting in front of him becoming a brown color.
According to the report Jeff also shared an experience that “It’s one of those fruits that you buy and eat where you inherently suffer disappointment, because it’s already gone brown or it goes to waste.”
Furthermore, Jeff has demonstrated that after peeling off an Avocado why it turns brown within a short period of time, well, he noticed that after slicing an avocado, a particular enzyme from the avocado reacts to the oxygen and that is the main reason that avocado becomes a brown color within a short period of time. Therefore, his new technology’s aim is to turn off this particular enzyme’s function, so that, the avocado can remain fresh for a long time after slicing.
How it works
It is a very easy process, all one would need to do is simply cultivate in the “avocado time machine” open avocados — whether it be cut, diced or split — onto the transport line where it will be dealt with for 5-6 minutes, that is it, job done. After then the avocado will remain fresh for at least 10 days, as the company said.
At the moment the company has made the machine for large food making companies, therefore, the organization is offering two models one that produces 250 kilograms (551 lbs) in 60 minutes, and one that does 500 kilograms (1,102 lbs) in 60 minutes.
However, for those who can’t get this facility at the moment from home, they are advised to be patient and wait because in the future you may be able to get this facility from home as well, though Jeff said that “Our focus is definitely on the industry, [to those] who provide a finished product to consumers, like fast food restaurants or airlines. However, it’s not impossible for us to develop a consumer scale product in future.”
So, in the future, Novato Zero technology will be at your home to keep your avocado fresh.
