​PEAKfresh is modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) made specifically for fruit and vegetables as well

as cut flowers and plants. With a natural mineral embedded in our products, we are able to modify the
composition of the air surrounding the packaged item in order to extend the initial fresh state of the
product. PEAKfresh has long been used by growers, shippers and retail chains to preserve the
freshness of produce during transit and storage. Most recently, NASA began using PEAKfresh to

extend the life of produce sent to and consumed by the astronauts at the International Space Station. 
   Brussels Sprouts can be stored successfully in excellent condition
   for around five weeks so long as they are stored dry in PEAKfresh
   carton liners. Immediate pre-cooling following harvest by either
   hydro-cooling or forced air ventilation will prevent yellowing of the
   sprouts and discoloration of the stem and maintenance of
   refrigerated storage at 0ºC with a very high level of humidity is
   critical to retaining bright green leaves. Extended storage may
   result in black specking of the leaves. Brussels sprouts are very
   sensitive to the presence of ethylene which has the affect of
   yellowing the leaves and they should not be stored in areas where
   ethylene from fruit will accelerate damage.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) 95% -100% humidity.
   Packaging Method:
   Properly pre-cooled Brussels Sprouts can be stored successfully

   in PEAKfresh carton liners that are folded closed at the top. By
   not sealing the liner allows for the ventilation of excessive build-up
   of carbon dioxide and other gases. This is important to avoid the
   possibility of flavor damage over extended periods of storage.
   Brussels sprouts packaged into smaller bags for domestic storage
   or food service use should be sealed with a twist tie.
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) 95% -100% humidity.
   Important Please Read:
   All recommendations for the use of PEAKfresh products are given

   in good faith and based on proven field experience. Packaging
   method storage temperatures and humidity levels, transit and
   destination conditions are factors likely to affect the performance
   of PEAKfresh products and no liability for indirect or consequential
   damage can be accepted. We recommend that PEAKfresh
   products be trialed under local conditions before introduction to
   large scale commercial applications.
