How it works

The technology behind d2p anti-fungal technology.

1

The moisture released from the food adds to the humidity inside the packaging and concentrated on the packaging surface.

2

Silver ions enter the bacteria’s membrane and cause damage and disruption to the cellular wall before penetrating the cell.

3

Silver ions are highly reactive with the cell enzymes and can deactivate these vital molecules.

4

Silver ions interrupt the cell DNA preventing replication and cell formation.
