Colloidal Silver Keeps Eggs Fresher, Longer Say Researchers
You might already know that adding a little bit of colloidal silver to your refrigerated milk can as much as double the shelf-life of your milk.
You might also have read that manufacturers in Brazil are already using silver-impregnated milk cartons to achieve the same benefit.
But what you might not know is that brand new research demonstrates that antimicrobial silver can also double the shelf life of eggs. Here’s the scoop no one else is talking about…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
As you might know, colloidal silver has been demonstrated to extend the shelf life of milk by as much as double its usual shelf-life.
You may have even read that adding an ounce of 10 pmm colloidal silver to a quart of milk that’s just beginning to sour will completely reverse the situation, making the milk taste fresher and sweeter than it did when you first opened the carton.
This helps prevent waste and saves money.
What’s more, if you put that same amount of colloidal silver into a freshly opened quart of milk, the milk will last for up to a week longer in the refrigerator than it otherwise would have.
Because of this manufacturers in Brazil are already using silver impregnated plastic milk cartons to keep milk fresher longer. They claim it increases the useful shelf life from seven days to 15 days.
Indeed, according to an article in Food Science & Technology, “The material’s performance in extending the shelf life of fresh milk was tested over a period of one year by Agrindus, Nanox and independent laboratories. Shelf life extension has now been certified and the company has embarked on bringing the material to market.”
So how does colloidal silver extend the shelf-life of milk? Colloidal silver is a safe but powerful natural antimicrobial agent. And it keeps milk fresher, longer, by dramatically reducing the populations of milk bacteria that are responsible for souring the milk.
If you’d like to learn more about colloidal silver’s proven and astonishing ability to quite literally double the shelf life of milk, you can read my previous article here: Colloidal Silver Doubles Shelf-Life of Milk, Say Researchers.
Works With Eggs, Too!
What you might not know is that this same shelf-life extending benefit can be enjoyed for the eggs in your refrigerator, too.
Indeed, brand new research demonstrates that antimicrobial silver can double the shelf life of eggs. What’s more, researchers in India are already developing a silver impregnated egg carton that will extend the shelf life of eggs by up to two weeks.
According to an article in the Times of India:
“Paper trays coated with a concoction of silver nanoparticles created by Indian researchers can extend the shelf life of eggs by up to two weeks, a scientist said on Wednesday. The development is meant to help small village farms store eggs for longer periods of time and sell them accordingly without deterioration of egg quality.”
What Indian researchers are doing is this:
They’re coating cardboard or stiff paper egg trays with gelatin mixed with silver nanoparticles. Then they store the eggs in the trays. This in turn dramatically reduces bacterial contamination on the surface of the egg shells.
This reduction of bacterial contamination on the egg shell surfaces is important, because these pathogens are always looking for tiny, microscopic cracks in the shell so they can penetrate the shell and contaminate the raw egg inside.
According to researchers from the Veterinary and Animal Sciences University in India, “The reduced microbial surface contamination raises the shelf life of eggs from 10 to 14 days to 25 to 30 days.” In other words, the shelf life of the eggs is essentially doubled simply by putting them into contact with antimicrobial silver while in storage.
The researchers even had a study published in the Bulletin of Materials Science, where they stated that the silver nanoparticle-coated egg trays showed “strong antimicrobial activity against commonly found bacteria on egg shells” including E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus and Salmonella.
The Times of India went on to say, “In village chicken farms, they get small numbers (only 5 to 10 eggs a day). With the coated paper trays, the villagers can accumulate the eggs over a longer period of time and sell them without compromising on quality.”
In other words, they’re using silver-coated egg cartons to keep the eggs from spoiling before they can get them to market.
It’s my belief that simple innovations like this, if used worldwide, have the potential to save hundreds of millions of dollars a year by preventing food waste caused by rapid spoilage.
But more importantly, such innovations can also help slow down the spread of food-borne pathogens that cause some 250 different food-borne diseases and sicken some 48 million people a year in the U.S. alone, killing thousands of them and costing hundreds of hundreds of millions of dollars a year in medical treatment.
Interestingly, on the CDC website, in the list of foods most likely to be associated with foodborne illness, fresh foods such as meat, poultry, eggs, milk and shellfish top the list while fresh fruits and vegetables come in a distant second.
So this new innovation is extremely important, since eggs are among the top foods causing food-borne illnesses, worldwide.
Do You Really Need
Silver-Impregnated Egg Cartons?
Of course, you don’t really need silver impregnated egg cartons to prevent bacterial contamination and keep your eggs fresher, longer.
Instead, you can simply put some 10 ppm colloidal silver into a pump spray bottle, and lightly spray or “mist” your freshly purchased eggs. Then, allow them to air dry before putting them into the refrigerator.
Or just open the lid on a fresh carton of eggs, and spray or “mist” both the eggs and the inside of the carton with colloidal silver, lightly, before allowing it to air dry and placing it into the fridge.
This kills the pathogens on the outside of the egg shell that are constantly trying to penetrate the eggs through small, microscopic cracks in the shell, and spoil them.
Another important point: Spraying your eggs with a little bit of 10 ppm colloidal silver and allowing it to air dry before refrigerating them will help prevent food-borne pathogens from cross-contaminating other food items in your refrigerator, as well.
After all, cross-contamination of fresh foods is very common in the refrigerator. For example, you might grab a couple of eggs to use for making potato salad, and in the process get Salmonella on your hands which is then spread to everything else you touch in your refrigerator, such as the potatoes, celery, etc.
So spraying your eggs lightly with colloidal silver after you’ve brought them home from the store can help remove at least one potential source of such cross-contamination from your refrigerated foods.
Not Available in the U.S.
Unfortunately, in the United States, the development of consumer products that incorporate antimicrobial silver into their makeup to help stop the spread of pathogens (and help prevent disease that might otherwise result) is being fought by radical environmentalists who want to severely restrict silver usage.
These radical environmentalists claim that the silver being used in consumer products (such as silver-impregnated egg cartons, or milk cartons, or even on computer keyboards) might end up in landfills and harm good bacteria in the environment.
Of course, the environmentalists don’t seem to understand that the silver came from the environment in the first place. And that any silver leached from a consumer goods product back into the environment is only returning the silver to where it came from.
Silver has been ubiquitous in the earth for millennia, and has never caused a problem. And nanosilver has been used commercially for its disinfection qualities and for antimicrobial (i.e., infection-fighting) purposes for nearly 120 years, and once more, has never caused a problem.
The bottom line is that the radical anti-silver environmentalists in the U.S. would apparently rather see people die of food-borne illness and disease than allow silver to be utilized in consumer products such as egg cartons, milk cartons, or the silver-coated butcher paper that Israeli researchers developed several years back to help stop the spread of pathogens on meat.
But here’s the truly good news:
You can enjoy the same food-disinfection benefits of silver simply by spraying colloidal silver onto your fresh foods before refrigerating them. This works with fresh fruits, fresh veggies, milk, cottage cheese, and just about anything that would otherwise spoil easily.
Some people even wash their fresh fruits and veggies in a combination of colloidal silver and vinegar before putting them into the refrigerator, thereby cleansing the food of pesticides (i.e., via the action of the vinegar) while the silver destroys pathogens that might have contaminated the food. To learn more, see the article A Simple, Effective Colloidal Silver Fruit and Vegetable Wash.
If you’re into home canning, you might also want to take a look at the short but quite interesting article, Using Colloidal Silver when Canning to Help Keep Food Fresh Longer!, which explains how to increase the shelf-life of home-canned foods by adding a small amount of colloidal silver.
Three more short articles you might want to check out are:
- Paper Embedded With Colloidal Silver Nanoparticles Could Help Resolve Food-Borne Illness and Disease
And of course, rather than hoping the powers-that-be finally allow milk cartons or egg cartons impregnated with nanosilver to be sold in the U.S., you can do what tens of thousands of nature-wise consumers do, and spray your own eggs with colloidal silver or add a little bit to your milk to keep it fresher longer.
And with 50% or more of the fresh meats in supermarkets now contaminated with pathogens such as the deadly, drug-resistant MRSA bacteria, having colloidal silver on hand in case of a nasty case of food poisoning is now more important than ever.
After all, as many natural health enthusiasts have discovered, colloidal silver wipes out the MRSA pathogen with ease.
Myriad of Uses for Colloidal Silver
Colloidal silver can be used for an astonishing array of additional healing and disinfecting purposes, including:
- Spray your store-bought meats and other fresh foods with colloidal silver before refrigerating, to kill any nasty pathogens such as MRSA on the food surfaces!
- Spray colloidal silver onto kitchen counter tops to kill germs, mold, mildew and other microbes!
- Soak your store-bought fruits and vegetables in it to eradicate potentially harmful bacteria and fungus from the food surfaces!
- Clean and decontaminate faucets, door knobs, and other contact surfaces such as your kitchen cutting board or that filthy blade on your kitchen can opener!
- Add a couple of ounces to your daily laundry as a natural disinfectant agent that will keep clothes, bath towels, dish rags, and other fabrics fresh and germ-free for weeks on end!
- Soak your toothbrush in it to prevent microbial contamination!
