LOCTEC™ packaging protects nutrient potency

Growing the World’s Best Superfoods is one thing, but protecting their valuable nutrients right up until the bottle is opened is another. The biggest enemy of superfoods is oxygen which can quickly damage sensitive vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants, reducing nutritional potency.

The best foods and beverages ALWAYS come packaged in glass with metal caps or 100% metal cans.

LOCTEC™ Oxygenless Packaging removes the oxygen from inside the glass bottles AND KEEPS IT OUT while on the shelf, ensuring the potency of the important nutrients you pay for are protected.

Superfoods packed in cheap plastic bottles are NOT protected from oxygen degradation (the oxygen molecule passes right through HDPE plastics) which can dramatically reduce nutrient potency in as little as 30 days after packing.

The graph below shows the difference packaging makes — the upper line is Spirulina in glass with a metal cap seal, the lower line is in a plastic bottle. The Spirulina in the plastic bottle lost 38% of its beta-carotene in the first month while that in the sealed glass bottle with metal cap lost none.

How does this happen? Simply, plastic packaging does not protect food from oxidation. The most common form of plastic packaging is HDPE (high density polyethylene) and the oxygen molecule easily penetrates this cheap plastic packaging and oxidises many valuable nutrients in the foods they contain.

Oxygen is the number one enemy of superfoods as it can damage many of the valuable nutrients potent superfoods contain, such as the abundant antioxidants, sensitive vitamins and many food enzymes.

For your superfoods to reach you with the best nutritional potency intact, the only true choice is LOCTEC™ Nutrient Protection Technology.

Loctec Oxygenless Storage

How does LOCTEC™ Nutrient Protection Technology work?

LOCTEC™ removes oxygen from the bottle at the time of packaging and creates an oxygen-barrier seal to keep it out of the bottle. So the starting point is already far superior to standard forms of packaging where that level of oxygen-barrier control cannot be guaranteed.

Our LOCTEC™ packaging is made from glass with metal caps that are 100% oxygen-proof and 100% recyclable, unlike plastic bottles, composite cans (recycled cardboard with plastic and glue added) and plastic pouches.

No oxygen or moisture gets into our glass bottles after they are sealed, so no deterioration occurs during the products shelf life.

Once the sealed glass bottle is in your possession of course you will open it and some oxygen exposure will occur. But the base level of nutritional value will be maintained at true, original integrity.

Reducing use of toxic plastic

Our choice to use LOCTEC™ packaging is also part of an ecological commitment and our way of playing a small role in reducing the amount of plastic being produced and used in the world today.
