How can you prevent the rapid deterioration of fresh lettuce and fresh meat? Use a drip tray in your 1.4 and 2-liter vacuum containers to keep the excess liquid separated from foodstuffs.
Vacuum packing prolongs the shelf life of vegetables, fruit, and fresh meat
By removing air with a vacuum pump, you remove oxygen, which is besides temperature and moisture the leading cause of food deterioration. By storing vacuum-packed foods in a cold environment, you prevent the effect of temperature and O2, and you’re left with the matter of moisture. We recommend the use of drip trays when vacuum packing moist or freshly washed food items. Moisture drips through trays and your food is separated from excess water.
Examples of using a drip tray for 1.4 and 2-liter vacuum containers
Rectangular drip trays are the best solution for storing:
- fresh meat, which won’t get the foul smell for laying in excess juices;
- freshly washed lettuce, which will stay fresh longer and won’t turn black because of excess water;
- slices fruit, which won’t get mushy and soggy.
Drip trays can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
Drip trays are made of polypropylene free of BPA and safe for contact with food.
