Produce Experiment

Since we got our Enagic Leveluk SD501 water ionizer, I have been experimenting with it's many uses. It produces water from pH of 2.5 up to 11.5, and each pH level has a variety of uses.

I have been using the 11.5 pH -also referred to as 'Strong Kangen' or Strong Alkaline' water- to clean my produce before we use it. To be honest, I used to clean most of my produce by holding it under running tap water and giving it a scrub if it seemed particularly dirty. Well, this was a real eye-opener for me. I had seen the demo for using the strong Kangen water to clean tomatoes and it was quite impressive but I wanted to try it myself. So I began soaking all my produce in a bowl of Strong Kangen water for a couple of minutes. I could not believe what was left behind in the bowl when I would remove the produce! I noticed the discoloration of the water as well as the quantity of particles of dirt and who knows all what, left behind in the bowl. The strong Kangen water strips away the pesticides etc which are on the food. I also notice great flavor and extended freshness.

Well, today I thought I'd take a few pictures. I had purchased tomatoes and strawberries at the grocery store this afternoon and was cleaning them for use. So to compare the difference between cleaning with regular tapwater and the Strong Kangen, I used two bowls - one with tap water, the other with Kangen. My pictures aren't great but I hope it gives you an idea of the difference.

Here's my bunch of vine-ripened tomatoes.

The bowl on the left is regular tap water, the bowl on the right contains the Strong Kangen water.
I placed two tomatoes in each bowl and let them sit there for a minute or two.
You can see the discoloration of the Strong Kangen water in the bowl on the right

Then I took the two tomatoes that were in the tapwater along with the other unwashed tomato and placed them in the Strong Kangen water

As you can see the Kangen water looks pretty yellow!

 Want to see the strawberries?
Prepped for cleaning!
Half in the tap water on the left, other half in the Strong Kangen on the right.
Both show discoloration and lots of 'debris' Notice the tapwater is more pink from the color of the strawberries, the Kangen water appears darker and dirtier. I then took the strawberries which had been in the tapwater and washed them in the Kangen.
All  clean!
This is the water after all strawberries have been washed in the Kangen.
Closer view - kind of yucky!
Well, I hope that gives you and idea of how important it is to get your produce clean, and how helpful the Enagic ionizer is. Even with our best efforts regular tap water doesn't get our produce clean and free of pesticides.

Feel free to ask any questions, and I'll be sharing some more tips soon!
