​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.

   SPINACH

   Spinach and silver beet are both very perishable and
   deteriorate rapidly at high temperatures. Both vegetables
   are sensitive to ethylene damage that causes yellowing of
   the leaves. Hydro-cooling is the best method of reducing
   temperature following harvest; however both leaf vegetables
   should not be stored in PEAKfresh wet.

   Recommended Post Harvest Temperatures
   0ºC (32ºF) and 95% -100% relative humidity
 


   Packaging Method:
   Spinach and silver beet can be stored dry in PEAKfresh carton liners. For small quantities of both vegetables,
   they are best stored in PEAKfresh bags that are sealed with a twist tie. Maintenance of refrigeration is critical to
   freshness. Storage period should not be longer than three weeks.
 
   Storage Temperatures:
   0ºC (32ºF) and 90% – 95% relative humidity
