Placing this card in the fridge may keep your food from spoiling too soon  1 Month ago

Can placing a napkin-sized laminated card inside your fridge keep the edibles inside from spoiling too quickly?

A family-owned Boston-based company Nature’s Frequencies claims sticking its $75 Food Freshness Card in the center of a typical sized refrigerator, can extend the shelf life of fruits, vegetables and bread up to 50% longer. 

It works outside the fridge, too, and can be placed under a fruit bowl, in a bread box or anywhere you want to slow down food storage. The card itself is guaranteed to last at least one year.

The card does not have to touch any of the food either, which can remain in their original containers until you're ready to eat them.

The Food Freshness Card was one of last week’s recipients of the annual Edison Awards, given out to innovative products. It took top honors in the food tech category.

The card was manufactured under three U.S. patents and independently tested by Modern Testing Services in Norwood, Massachusetts. 

At the Nature’s Frequencies website, you can watch time-lapse video comparing how fast raspberries, tomatoes, spring mix greens, and other foods go bad, with and without the card.

Even with that, the card invites skepticism, and, no, I haven't tested it yet myself.

Individuals can buy the card at the Nature’s Frequencies site for $74.95, though the company is mainly pitching its technology for industrial use. In other words, to the folks who may sell, store or deliver the perishables to your local grocery store.

Though the explanation for how this all works can get rather technical (with some of the details kept under wraps), in simple terms the card inhibits mold and bacteria growth to extend shelf life and keep food fresher. It has about a 3-foot radius.

Food waste is a huge global problem, of course, especially when you consider all the people around the planet who go hungry.

Nature’s Frequencies points out that 1.3 billion tons of food are thrown out each year, costing average American family $2,200 a year. On top of that, supermarkets throw out about 43 billion pounds of food annually, and restaurants 50 tons.
