New “Avocado Time Machine” Will Stop Fruit From Browning

Australian company has found a way to “switch off” oxidizing enzyme using only pressure.

The Natavo Zero, a new machine developed by Australian company Naturo Technologies, has the potential to “revolutionize the global avocado market” thanks to a new technology that prevents freshly cut avocados from browning for a minimum of 10 days. The machine employs pressure (akin to the High Pressure Pasteurizing [HPP] process used by many juice companies) to “switch off” the enzyme responsible for oxidizing the flesh of the green fruit in an all-natural process the company says uses no chemicals, acids, or additives. “[The Natavo Zero has the capacity to] create a significant impact in the associated food services, retail, and manufacturing industries,” Naturo said. News of the life-extending technology is particularly useful in 2016, as not one but two lines of all-vegan avocado-based ice creams debuted this year.
