PremiumColor: The best light for Fruits and vegetables

Making fresh produce healthier, look better, taste better and last longer

The fresh food department is where shopper loyalty is forged, and therefore often the main motivator for a trip to the store.

Fruits and vegetables present specific challenges where loss and waste are concerned. Because they are living tissues, fresh fruits and vegetables are subject to continuous change and deterioration. We’ve carried out comprehensive experiments on fresh fruits and vegetables to find out what light is best for both presentation and preserving quality.

The importance of vitamin C in a healthy diet

Lighting has a particularly important role in the production of vitamin C in fruit & vegetables. Vitamin C is essential for the proper functioning of the human body.  However, the human body is not able to make (or store) vitamin C It is therefore important to include plenty of vitamin C-containing foods in a daily diet.

Fruit & vegetables are considered the most important source of vitamin C for humans. Consequently, it would be a health benefit if the vitamin C levels of the fresh fruit & vegetables available in supermarkets today could be as high as possible. This is where lighting can play a key role.
