BIOX-M is different to other sprout inhibitors available on the market in that it is a 100% natural product without artificial additives. Its excellent antisprouting capability is at least equivalent to chlorinated synthetic products.
Potatoes treated with BIOX-M can be stored at temperatures higher than 46 degrees. This helps to prevent sugar formation and reduces carcinogenic compounds (acrylamide) produced when frying. Packaging size: 20 liter PE-HD canister. It was introduced to the market in November.

Limeburst Fingerlimes, Australia
Hall 3.2, Stand A-14
Fingerlimes are an unusual variety of Australian citrus that retain their juice in caviar-like vesicles. The juice bursts free from the vesicles when chewed producing a slightly acidic, lime-like taste unique to the fingerlime. The “citrus caviar” is attractive as a decorative ingredient in food preparation.
Although a traditional product, fingerlimes have only recently been developed for marketing on an international scale, and are targeted chiefly at the high-end restaurant and foodservice sector as a novel and unique product that can be a key taste accompaniment to both complex and simple dishes.
Limeburst Fingerlimes are available in four varieties – Limeburst Green, Limeburst Burgundy, Limeburst Pink and Limeburst Black. These varieties have fruit caviar that is opaque, deep red, pink and bright green respectively. The fingerlime is the size and shape of a finger, between 10-17 centimeters in length, and weighs 25-30 grams. It was introduced to the market in the spring.
