VICTORIA FRUIT DRYING OIL
Victoria Fruit Drying Oil is a Multi-Purpose Drying oil used to assist the drying of grapes and other fruits.
ingredients are based on ethyl esters which are the most cost
effective materials to increase the rate of drying. This oil is
formulated with a unique blend of emulsifiers that confers
excellent emulsion stability to provide easy and reliable
emulsification at the point of use.
VICTORIA FRUIT DRYING OILTM was first manufactured by the
Victorian Chemical Company in 1939 for use by the grape growers
in the Sunraysia region of Australia. In the intervening period the
performance and stature of the product has been enhanced
through the introduction of fatty acid ester technology.
VICTORIA FRUIT DRYING OILTM was the first product to be
manufactured using Food Grade Vegetable Oil. Following this,
approvals were granted by the American Food and Drug
VICTORIA FRUIT DRYING OILTM is commonly viewed as the market
leader. This can be attributed to the length of time that it has been
adding value to grower’s produce through reliable performance
and innovative development.
Always follow the directions for use on the label.
Avoid applying to immature fruit of less than 22º Brix
For even-drying, the fruit must be completely covered with
emulsion. To help ensure this, emulsion may be reapplied 4-5
days after the initial treatment. However, drying time is
retarded by additional unnecessary applications of emulsion.
If rain occurs within three days of spraying and removes a
significant amount of emulsion, it should be reapplied.
Avoid Spraying at low ambient temperatures (15ºC).
Apply emulsion within 4 days of cane cutting or vice versa.
