What is Fridge Buddy? There is quite a buzz going around at the moment about this product as we have all heard it being advertised on the radio and in other media, and testimonials such as the one above, are coming in thick and fast to the New Zealand owned company based in Albany. Fridge Buddy is the natural way to keep products fresh in the fridge. The filter in Fridge Buddy contains a 100% natural mineral, found only in the Mojave Desert in California. This natural mineral keeps products in the fridge fresher for longer. The active mineral ensures a drier and fresher climate by absorbing excess moisture, odours, bacteria and ethylene gas that age your perishable foodstuffs.
So what is ethylene gas? Certain foods like apples, pears, melons, berries, stone fruit, grapes, leafy greens, salad greens, sweet corn and tomatoes are more sensitive to the effects of ethylene gas. Ethylene gas is a ripening agent produced by all plant tissue and helps fruits and vegetables become colourful and tasty. However, it can also be a plant’s worst enemy by speeding up its ripening process. Removing ethylene gas from the environment drastically increases the shelf life of fruit and vegetables.
Because the mineral inside Fridge Buddy is always striving to maintain conditions of 80% to 90/% relative humidity, it will absorb and desorb moisture in order to maintain those ideal levels. Maintaining a consistent level of moisture within the environment ensures that your foods receive the right amount of moisture to keep them fresher and to retain their flavour, for longer.
One of the most attractive factors about buying a Fridge Buddy is that it is going to save a lot of money by extending the life of fruit, vegetables and other perishable products. The really good part is that it can also save money by reducing the power bill. Fridge Buddy filters absorb warm moisture particles that enter when the fridge door is opened, which means the fridge doesn’t have to work as hard to drive the temperature down to its ‘set point’. This results in a more consistent temperature in the fridge with the cooling fans not having to come on as often to maintain that consistent temperature, so cost savings all round!
