With a vast array of our products being stored in miron glass containers, they have their quality protected for longer. With so many products these days being packaged in the cheapest possible way, it’s no wonder they need to be filled with preservatives and artificial ingredients to keep them consumable. Here at Epigenetics we recognise the power of miron violet glass and that’s why we use it.
The Tomato Experiment
In order to more easily prove the quality protection given to food and supplements, a microbiological experiment was carried out with cherry tomatoes. During this test, a cherry tomato was stored in white glass and in miron violet glass, then kept at room temperature where sunlight could reach it.
The result was photographed after 7 months. The microbiological changes of the tomato stored in white glass can be clearly seen, however the tomato stored in miron glass shows no loss of colour and no signs of drying out.
Miron glass is an ancient preservative in it’s own right – if the tomato has survived the test of time, then so will your supplements.
The History of Miron
Going back in the history of mankind, violet glass is already mentioned as being used by the early Egyptians. It is interesting to note, that these sophisticated Egyptians used violet or gold jars in order to preserve and protect their most precious substances (taken from nature) for long time storage. The secret of violet glass was to be ‘kept in the dark’ for a long time however, as it was used less and less between this Egyptian era and our present day times. By the beginning of the 20th century, the glass was really only being used by pharmacists who stored their remedies in hand made, violet glass, bottles.
After many years of research, miron violetglass was developed for the protection and storage of high quality substances. By 1995, the company miron had started the first mechanical production of this special glass, bringing about the come-back of violet glass as a means of quality protection for valuable products. By 2005, many innovative companies, who highly value the conservation of Bio-energy in their products between the storage periods from production until consummation, had changed to this violet glass.
