Avocados aren’t cheap and, while food waste of any kind isn’t ideal, it’s especially irritating to see expensive produce go to waste. Unfortunately, the all-too-familiar browning caused by oxidation when avocado flesh is exposed to air comes quickly, so if you aren’t mashing the entire avocado for your toast or eating the whole batch of guac in one sitting, you’re going to have unappetizing leftovers you’ll likely end up tossing.
Yes, you can still eat avocado that has turned brown, at least for a couple of days, but the oxidation does bring a bitterness that ruins the flavor, so you’re not likely to take more than one bite. And yes, you can use lemon or lime juice to help delay oxidation, but only if you have it on hand and if your snack can tolerate a more liquid consistency. AvoFresh, however, is a convenient powder that can be mixed directly with mashed avocado or added to 8 ounces of water and sprayed onto slices or a leftover half of avocado before storing. Made from vitamin C and calcium carbonate, it’s OMRI-certified organic, gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO, and will not just prevent unappetizing browning from oxidation, but will help preserve your avocado (sliced, mashed or simply exposed) for up to seven days.
Each packet of avoFresh contains enough powder to preserve up to three small avocados and, while lemons and limes (like most fruits and vegetables) generally can’t cross international borders, avoFresh can, making it ideal for traveling avo-lovers.Bra

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
Breweries are everywhere today and, while many craft and microbreweries specialize in particular styles of beer, few are quite as specialized as Ghent Gruut Brewery in Ghent, Belgium. Here, the current craze for hop-heavy India Pale Ales is entirely eschewed as absolutely no hops at all are used in the brewing process. Before you clamor to claim this can’t be beer at all as everyone knows the four ingredients of beer are grain, water, yeast, and hops, consider hops weren’t actually added to beer until the 13th century. Before then, all beers were flavored with herbs and spices, or gruut, as the French population of medieval Ghent called them.
