Garden Fresh Stored Longer

Natural Healing Tools Violet glass – the perfect storage for delicate products

This time of year, garden harvest can be plentiful. But all the effort to plant, nurture and harvest shouldn't be ruined by not storing properly!

Storage test with tomatoes

In order to more easily prove the quality protection given to food stored in Natural Healing Tools Violet Glass, a microbiological experiment was carried out with cherry tomatoes. 

During this test, a cherry tomato was stored for 7 months in a white glass and in a Natural Healing Tools Violet glass, and then kept at room temperature where sunlight could reach it. The result was photographed after 7 months. The microbiological changes of the tomato stored in white glass can be clearly seen. The tomato stored in Natural Healing Tools Violet glass however shows no loss of color and no signs of drying out.

Storage test with chives

Sprayed-, white-, green- and brown glass are permeable in the visible light spectrum and don’t offer enough protection against decomposition caused by light. As an experiment, several herbs and spices were stored for 3 months in several types of glass (white, brown, violet), and were either exposed to the sun for several hours a day or kept inside.

After 2 months, the visible quality change was recorded with photographs, and the difference in smell determined in a blind test with volunteers. The illustration shows clearly that the chive samples that were exposed to the sun have bleached in brown and white glass. As photographed in this illustration, the sample stored in Natural Healing Tools Violet glass shows no color change. The smell of the chives stored in Natural Healing Tools Violet glass was also clearly stronger and fresher.
