How to Keep Avocados Fresh

Welcome to the Abeego Test Kitchen where we explore food storage methods to understand and preserve the life of our fresh living food. Abeego is the original beeswax food wrap that breathes. Reusable for a year, Abeego keeps food fresh for longer than ever imagined.

Enjoy the second half of your avocado as much as the first! Yep, it's possible with Abeego. 
No Abeego? No problem! We'll show you how to preserve avocado and keep them green & delicious.
 
Let's dig in.
 
 
PLASTIC WRAP
Avocados are alive. They need to breathe and be protected to stay fresh. When wrapped in transparent & airtight plastic, your avo is exposed to light and the oxidation gases it releases become trapped. The result? Suffocated & slimy avocado. 
NAKED
When left naked, sliced avocado is exposed to the harsh elements of the fridge, causing it to quickly withers & lose nutritional moisture. The result? Premature avo spoilage.   
 
 
HOW TO STORE HALF AN AVOCADO WITH ABEEGO FOOD WRAP
When wrapped in Abeego, your avocado won't even know it's been sliced. Abeego breathes (letting off-gas escape) and protects (shielding the avocado from air, light & moisture).  
  1. Wrap your half avocado (pit in) in Abeego using the Squeeze technique. A Small Abeego is the perfect size for this job.
  2. Store in the fridge, pit side up.
  3. Unwrap the next day for round two of green goodness & never question how to store avocado again.

We've seen avocado kept fresh in Abeego from 2 days to 2 weeks. Is it a miracle?! Nah, it's nature.

Use the peel from the empty half of the avocado and cover overtop of the other! Much like Abeego, it will protect your precious avo while still letting it breathe.
