FDA Approved this Toxic Coating on Your Produce -including Organic

Apeel, a mysterious Bill Gates and World Economic Forum-backed food coating that makes rotting produce appear fresh, is approved for use on USDA Organic produce under the name Organipeel. A new food coating called Apeel, backed by Bill Gates and the World Economic Forum, has appeared on shelves in Idaho and is approved for use on USDA Organic produce under the name Organipeel. The coating is invisible and can’t be washed off, and it makes rotting produce appear fresh. Apeel has a presence in 8 countries, operating 30 supply networks and distributing produce to 40 retail partners, which then goes out to tens of thousands of stores around the world, including Trader Joes, Costco, Walmart, and Albertsons. The company says they have developed ‘solutions’ for limes, mandarins, apples, and oranges, and other applications to follow include “everything from asparagus to pineapples, mangoes, lemons and tomatoes”. However, its primary ingredient is Mono- and diglycerides contain trans-fat, which promotes inflammation in the body and has been associated with heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and obesity.

Below is an excerpt from the Organic Material Review (OMRI) article on Apeel. Call to Action included!

The Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) gave it the green light, presumably based on citric acid being the active ingredient. Citric acid is a non-organic ingredient allowed in organic as long as it isn’t synthetic, but it’s only 0.66 percent of the Organipeel formulation!

At first blush, concerns about Apeel seemed like fake news. Fact-checkers were quick to point out that the safety data sheet circulating the internet was for a different product with the same name, not for the edible food coating backed by Bill Gates and the World Economic Forum that was raising hackles on social media.

But, when members of the Organic Consumers Association alerted us to news that Apeel’s is being used in organic, we had to investigate. The main ingredient in Apeel is monoacylglycerides. The industrial process they use to extract monoacylglycerides from grape seed leaves residues of ethyl acetate, heptane, palladium, arsenic, lead, cadmium and mercury.

How big of a food safety concern is Apeel?

Given everything else Bill Gates and the World Economic Forum expect us to swallow or inject, we can’t be too skeptical, but are the problems with Apeel on the same level as other food safety concerns?

Is it as important to avoid Apeel as it is to reject genetically engineered foods? Toxic pesticides? Factory-farmed animal products laced with livestock drugs, including mRNA vaccines? Indigestible insects? Lab-grown meat-replacements?

Our conclusion is that Apeel carries the same health problems as similar preservatives commonly used to extend the shelf-life of ultra-processed food. On that basis alone, we advise avoiding Apeel, including the version used on Starr Ranch’s organic apples, known as Organipeel.

Weston A Price Review of Apeel

The Weston A. Price Foundation wrote an informative article about Apeel back in 2018, “Is Apeel Appealing?” that concluded:

Do our foods need to be traveling on boats for months at a time before sitting on shelves even longer? And what about the nutritional value of our foods? Will it be affected by Apeel, and does that matter to us? Is Apeel’s “second skin” even appealing?

Ultimately, the arrival of Apeel in the marketplace can serve to remind us of the many reasons to eat local, traditional, organic, biodynamic and chemical-free foods.

That’s the most important takeaway. Nowhere does anyone claim that Apeel does anything to maintain nutrient density.

Even with refrigeration, every day post-harvest is a loss. Most produce loses 30 percent of nutrients three days after harvest.

Get the best nutrition by eating straight from the garden or farmers’ market. You’ll have no need for Apeel!

The arrival of Apeel in the marketplace reminds us of the many reasons to prioritize our purchase and consumption of local, traditionally produced, organic (check with suppliers to see if they are using Apeel products), biodynamic and chemical-free foods wherever possible.
