MIRON Glass Containers


Biophotonic glass can be traced back to the Ancient Egyptians who understood the beneficial qualities of violet glass for preserving food and wine. Biophotonic glass filters the visible light spectrum, only allowing through Infra Red and UVA (violet) protective light.

MIRON glass jars are considered to be ‘heirloom quality’ and they can last a lifetime with normal daily use. This unique violet glass only allows the transfer of beneficial wavelengths of light to enter the space within the jar - blocking all frequencies that would otherwise cause organic substances to rapidly degrade or decompose.


Amazing MIRON storage test with Chives:

Glass storage containers that are either clear, green or amber are permeable in the visible light spectrum and don’t offer adequate protection against decomposition of organic (carbon based) material that results from exposure to natural daylight. As an experiment, a selection of herbs and spices were stored for up to three months in several types of glass (clear, amber, violet) and were either exposed to the sun for several hours a day or kept indoors ...

After two months of testing fresh Chives, the visible quality change was recorded with photographs and the difference in aroma was reported by volunteers. The illustration below showing Chive samples exposed to the sun were bleached and degraded in the clear and amber glass jars. However, as photographed in this experiment, the sample stored in MIRON violet glass showed no colour change. The aroma of the Chives (as detected by the volunteers) stored in MIRON violet glass was reported to be significantly stronger and fresher. And another impressive test was conducted with a cherry tomato that remained edible for several months!   The Chive test was conducted by Dr. Niggli and Dr. Max Bracher
