Vejibag Vegetable Preservation Bag is an organic cotton bag that helps keep vegetables in the fridge fresh longer. To keep fresh and maintain the texture of lettuce, spinach, carrots, broccoli, celery, eggplant, beets, Swiss chard, mushrooms, etc. You can keep the green leaf fresh for up to two weeks.
Vegetables preserve well in an environment with 80-95% relative humidity. That is why it is sometimes thought that it is good to store them in plastic bags. However, plastic is not a good system since it traps the ethylene gas that makes the vegetables go quickly from ripe to past. In addition, with Vejibag we contribute to a kitchen without plastics, while we put a grain of sand against the serious environmental problem that plastics are causing.
These bags create a cool, moist environment where vegetables can "breathe." Moisture evaporates slowly so vegetables stay crisp and fresh longer.
For a good conservation the vegetables need to be clean, with an adequate level of humidity, at low temperatures and with good air circulation to reduce the presence of ethylene gas. For it:
- Wet the bag and drain.
- Wash vegetables thoroughly in plenty of water. If they are leafy vegetables, remove the damaged leaves.
- Put the vegetables in the bag and keep at cold temperature (between 0 and 4 ºC).
- If the bag dries after a few days, it is enough to rewet it.
The water in the fabric slowly evaporates and transports the moisture from the vegetables to the outside of the Vejibag bag. In this way a humid environment is created, where the vegetables can breathe and the deterioration is delayed.
