How to keep sliced fruit from browning

Anyone know what the "all natural" ingredients in Spresh are?

  1. Citric acid, I would imagine. The bottle says, "ingredients: water, natural acids."

      Agreed. In fact, save yourself the money, buy an empty spray bottle and add some lemon juice to it and you'll get the same results at a fraction of the price, and no whats included too.

        Hard to know until it comes on the market and can be taste tested, the video seems to claim that it doesn't have a lemon flavor - which kids often object to.

      1. Don't know about Spresh, but I use Fruit Fresh (a product made by the Ball canning supplies company) which lists its ingredients as ascorbic acid, citric acid, dextrose, and a silicone product to prevent caking. You need very little of it. About half a teaspoon in a quart of sliced sugared fresh peaches keeps them from turning for several days.

        1. So, the entrepreneur of the start-up Spresh says that his product - unlike spritzing lemon juice - is flavorless.
