Rave Review by Customer: Jean Foo (Analyst, Healthcare Industry, Singapore)

“The vegetables from ENF hydroponics farm were extremely crisp and fresh. The aroma of the vegetables smelt very fresh upon opening the packet. My colleagues were envious and amazed at how green, clean and fresh my salad looked compared to theirs. I also noticed that the vegetables could last much longer in my fridge before withering compared to those bought from the supermarkets. The best part about the hydroponics vegetables is that I know that no pesticides were used and I don’t have to worry about it affecting my health.  ENF vegetables are super delicious and hygienic.”

ENF empowers you in 3 ways …

  • PREVENT sickness by nourishing your body with fresh, nutritious vegetables that are vital for your health
  • PROTECT yourself and your family from the risk of eating vegetables that contain toxic pesticide residues
  • PRESERVE the shelf life of your vegetables, thereby saving you money.

PREVENT Sickness

It is important to eat lots of vegetables.  Vegetables provide nutrients vital for your health and maintenance of your body.

The Singapore Health Promotion Board advocates filling half your plate with fruit and vegetables every day to maximize your nutrient intake.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, vegetables are important natural sources of many nutrients, including potassium, dietary fibre, folate (folic acid), vitamin A, and vitamin C.

  • Potassium helps to maintain healthy blood pressure.
  • Dietary fibre helps reduce blood cholesterol levels, lowers risk of heart disease, and helps reduce constipation.
  • Folate (folic acid) helps the body produce red blood cells.
  • Vitamin A keeps eyes and skin healthy, and helps to protect against infections.
  • Vitamin C helps heal cuts and wounds, keeps teeth and gums healthy, and aids in iron absorption.

PROTECT Against Pesticide Residues

Found on many conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables, pesticide residues pose a health risk.

Pesticides are used by conventional farmers to protect plants from the damaging effects of weeds, plant diseases and insects.  There is no question that these can be toxic.  This is why the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) imposes strict regulations on both the types and amount of pesticides used.

To protect yourself against pesticide residues,

  • Wash your vegetables thoroughly with water.  But pesticide residues can also be absorbed through the roots of a plant and cannot be washed off.
  • Avoid pesticide residues altogether by buying vegetables that are grown without the use of pesticides.

PRESERVE Shelf Life of Vegetables

Fresh vegetables are living systems.  Before harvesting, losses of cellular substances and moisture due to respiration and transpiration are replaced by water, photosynthesis and minerals from the plants.   After harvesting, these losses are not replaced, and deterioration occurs.  This causes a quality decline of the nutrients and limits the shelf life of the vegetables.

Buying locally grown and freshly harvested vegetables will ensure that you get quality nutrients from your vegetables.  Your vegetables also stay fresh longer, minimizing spoilage and saving you money.
