Test results confirm Citrofresh is effective against four major virus types including HIV & Avian. This certified organic anti-bacterial range of products may also play a role in preventing the spread of Avian Flu and three other viruses according to a European virology researcher, Retroscreen Virology Laboratory. The researcher found that Citrofresh demonstrates “significant virucidal activity” against HIV, human influenza virus, as well as the virus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome. Citrofresh is an organic bioflavonoid compound that was developed and brought to market by Citrofresh International Ltd., a publicly traded Australian company.
Because Citrofresh is non-toxic, growth in worldwide food markets as a disinfectant is foreseen. In theory, the product would kill Avian Flu at the source. Retroscreen, which issued its report in late September, suggested that a solution with 5% concentration of Citrofresh, and five minutes of contact time, would be sufficient to eliminate all of the viruses. Citrofresh does not currently offer products to help in the fights against HIV, flu, nor SARS. However, the company believes it can enter those markets and is researching applications. In a written release the company said “The ability of Citrofresh to be both a broad spectrum biocide (including efficacy against HIV), provides Citrofresh with a unique opportunity. Citrofresh will market a range of “Barrier Protection” products to be used in the first instance for men’s health (post intercourse spray or lotion) subject to the results of trials on efficacy.” Citrofresh operates in the following markets: food and agriculture; cleaning, sanitizing and disinfectant; human health and personal hygiene; and animal health. Its line of products is certified by the National Association for Sustainable Agriculture Australia Ltd. (NASAA), which is accredited by the United States Department of? Agriculture (USDA). Citrofresh also complies with the EU Regulation 2092/91 and exceeds the European Suspension test and chemical disinfectants and antiseptics basic bactericidal activity. Currently, the company is seeking distribution opportunities worldwide.
