Fresher, longer lasting prawns.

Prawnfresh is a safe and easy-to-use non-residual product that controls the onset of melanosis in wild-caught and farmed prawns. This results in prawns that have a much longer shelf life, which in turn increases their market value.

Prawnfresh is much safer to use and more effective than sodium metabisulphite, which only masks the melanosis – in effect bleaching it out.

Prawnfresh solves all these problems. The active ingredient in Prawnfresh is safe to use and leaves no chemical residues or taints. It works by inhibiting the enzyme present in the prawn that results in melanotic blackening. Prawnfresh produces a much more natural looking prawn in terms of coloration. It extends the shelf life much longer compared with sodium metabisulphite treated prawns. It also results in a better tasting product.

An independent study on the various alternative treatments to sodium metabisulphite found that Prawnfresh delivered the best results*. As well as being safe and effective, it is simple to use and is applied in a dip.

Prawnfresh is approved for use by the EU (EC 2006/52) and in the Nordic Economic zone.
