OCION PF91 is an inspired food grade disinfect used commercially to control the bacteria, fungi and food fly that cause spoilage in harvested fruits and vegetables.
OCION PF91 can extend the shelf-life and freshness of post-harvest produce by controlling the growth of micro-organisms that cause spoilage.
OCION PF91 uses minute quantities of natural minerals in biologically active ionic form to reduce microorganism and pest that cause food spoilage and food borne illness.
Appealing to health-conscious commercial operations and consumers alike, the active ingredients in OCION PF91 acquire the following international food grade standards.
GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe), according to the US Food and Drug Administration, a chemical or substance added to food is considered safe when used on food products at the recommended rates. Therefore, it is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic act food additive tolerance requirements.
Establishing an MRL (Maximum Residue Limit) is exempted from the requirement of a tolerance under EPA 40 CFR 180.940 and by FAO and WHO when applied as food-contact surfaces sanitizing solutions, dairy-processing equipment, and food-processing equipment and utensils or to raw agricultural commodities after harvest at a recommended rate (80 ppm) of application. It’s also exempted by global CODEX Alimentarius International Food Standards.
Proudly listed on the OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) Product List©. OCION PF91 qualifies as organic under the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP). The listed products are used by certifiers, growers, manufacturers and suppliers to confirm that an item is approved for organic use according to USDA rules. It may be used in certified organic production or food processing and handling according to the USDA National Organic Program regulations.
How It Works
The ionic minerals in OCION PF91 interact with multiple sites of micro-organisms including cellular membrane, plasmid, DNA, and RNA. This leads to inhibition or death, and reduces the proliferation of these microbes.
When applied on post-harvest fruits and vegetables through dip or spray, OCION PF91 kills and inhibits the growth of micro-organisms, reducing the speed at which spoilage occurs and extending the shelf-life of the produce. Once treated OCION PF91 forms a protective barrier on the fruit and vegetables which can offer protection all the way to the store shelf.
OCION’s innovative Aqueous Ionic Matrix (AIM) technology enhances the antimicrobial properties of natural minerals in OCION PF91. In this modern world with fast growing population, the consumer demand for high quality, fresh produce has never been higher. Today’s smart food buyers want and expect year-round choices and healthy alternatives. The business of handling perishables demands keen attention to uncompromising measures that preserve freshness and quality. OCION PF91 is used commercially to control the bacteria, fungi and insects that cause spoilage in harvested fresh fruits and vegetables, effectively extending the shipping and shelf life of produce. It’s fast and easy to use, don’t produce any by products, tasteless and odorless, environmentally responsible, safe for use on food, as active ingredients are natural essential minerals. Therefore, it is exempted from establishing an MRL and recognized as GRAS approved ingredient. It also listed in OMRI Listed Product and qualifies as USDA ORGANIC food grade substance.
What Users Are Saying
I heard of this product from one of my friends in Hong Kong, and have tried it on some vegetables and fruits myself, and was surprised by the results. It really kept them fresh for ten days under the hot temperature of summer in China. I’m really interested in it and eager to use plenty of your product. Thanks!
