Fruits & Vegetables:
Fill the washing container with water and leave in the kitchen sink. Add 1 pump of Natural Food Wash to 3 liters of water. Fully submerge the fruit and vegetables for 30 seconds.

Raw Meat & Seafood:
Place the meat or seafood in a washing container in the kitchen sink. For every 1 kg of meat, massage 2 pumps of Natural Food Wash all over the meat. Carefully add water to the container and allow the meat to be fully submerged for 5 minutes. Thereafter, pour the water out, refill the container with water to rinse. Discard the water, and your raw meat and seafood is now safe.

SHOULD WE CLEAN RAW MEAT & SEAFOOD?
The answer is an absolute yes. Proper washing of raw meat and seafood removes dangerous bacteria and fungus, eliminates odors, slows the growth of microorganisms, and keeps the raw meat and seafood fresher, and for longer. Although many germs and bacteria can be killed with proper cooking temperatures, certain harmful bacterial spores (e.g. listeria) can survive in high heat. When chilled meat and seafood is brought home from the store, it is advisable to wash them to ensure safety, especially in warm and humid conditions.
Traditionally, it is not uncommon to find households in Southeast Asia washing meat with salt, flour, lemongrass, and turmeric, etc. to remove the gamey or fishy odor of meat and seafood. However, there is a limit to the effectiveness of these traditional methods, nor can they remove dangerous pathogens. The Gramp’s Asia Natural Food Wash is a rare option to effectively clean away the smell and the germs and bacteria.
Safety aside, cleaning away all undesirables off raw meat and seafood means brining out and enhancing their natural taste. Using this Natural Food Wash means not needing extra seasoning to overpower any unwanted taste. Every chef at home will appreciate this.
In the United States, agencies like the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA) have advised against washing meat primarily because using an effective meat wash is not common practice in the country. Running the meat under a tap might splash harmful bacteria all over the kitchen. A simple water bath does nothing to clean meat and seafood. However, the Gramp’s Asia Natural Food Wash has been laboratory tested to remove e. coli, salmonella and other dangerous pathogens and offers a safe way to wash meat. Follow the usage instructions below and meat and seafood can be cleaned safely.
