Miron glass is the ultimate way to protect your perishables from sunlight and UV degradation and preserve their quality.
Studied and developed in Germany, miron glass uses complex biophotonic technologies to block the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part. At the same time miron glass allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products.
Whilst ageing and decay is a natural process, some of the products produced in this chemical reaction may compromise the health of our environment and bodies, increasing our risk for illness and disease.
Miron glass bottles are highly versatile in their applications and can be used in many areas of your day to day life including as the perfect on the go water bottle or in the kitchen as a quality storage container.
By actively filtering light, miron glass bottles protect their contents helping to extend the shelf life of products and conserve their taste, smell, colour and structure. Miron glass bottles assist in preventing and delaying the decaying process, ensuring you use products of high quality that support you to a life of good health and wellbeing.
Test of Quality with Chives:
Sprayed-, white-, green- and brown glass are permeable in the visible light spectrum and don’t offer enough protection against decomposition caused by light. As an experiment, several herbs and spices were stored for 3 months in several types of glass (white, brown, violet), and were either exposed to the sun for several hours a day or kept inside.
After 2 months, the visible quality change was recorded with photographs, and the difference in smell determined in a blind test with volunteers. The illustration shows clearly that the chive samples that were exposed to the sun have bleached in brown and white glass. As photographed in this illustration, the sample stored in MIRON violet glass shows no color change. The smell of the chives stored in MIRON violet glass was also clearly stronger and fresher.
