The quality and freshness of food is key to health and wellbeing. Nature offers a perfect spectrum of nutrients: vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates that give energy, boost stamina and enhance mood. When stored at the right temperature and humidity, foods retain their delicious freshness and flavor for much longer. By this article we want to explain you how Liebherr’s Patented BioFresh Technology works.

After a long day at work, you need food quickly and that’s what you get with fresh fruit, fruit juice, a crispy salad or a tasty portion of vegetables! Right?  What’s more, not only are they a quick, tasty treat, but they also enhance your mood! However, to preserve the vitamins and nutrients that they contain, you’ll need to have the right storage environment at home. Food’s shelf life is determined firstly by its freshness, and then by the temperature and humidity at which it’s stored. For this reason Liebherr has developed it’s BioFresh technology, which stores food at just above 0°C, with the support of high-precision electronics. Understand more about it in our this video!

Targeted humidity for specific foods

Humidity regulation in the BioFresh drawers makes it possible to individually set the humidity in DrySafes or HydroSafes.

DrySafes with low humidity (dry climate) are ideal for storing meat, fish and dairy products.

Meanwhile, fruit and vegetables are optimally stored, unpacked, in the BioFresh HydroSafe. Fruit and vegetables have a high water content, and this should be preserved during storage. When the HydroSafe is compactly filled, an environment with a humidity level of up to 90% is created, so the moisture in the food is retained, keeping it crisp and fresh for much longer. Kiwi fruit stored in a BioFresh HydroSafe retains its delicate flavour, vitamin content and appetising appearance for 80 days, compared to only 40 days under normal storage conditions. An alpine cheese stays fresh for 10 days in a normal refrigerator compartment, but for an incredible 110 days in a BioFresh DrySafe!

The app tells you everything you need to know about foods and their vitamin content, and gives shelf life comparisons for conventional refrigeration versus BioFresh & BioFresh Plus storage.

The detailed presentation means you can quickly and easily access all kinds of information about fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and dairy products. The vitamin and mineral content of 130 different foods can be viewed by simply tapping the screen, and you can search for favourite foods or products that contain specific vitamins.
