Nitrogen and MAP for food packages

Nitrogen and MAP for food packagesEver wondered what keeps your coffee so fresh and aromatic?

Why crisps are crisps as freshly made from the packets?

The answer to most of the things related to packed food freshness is the almost inert gas Nitrogen. We would rather call it a saint as it does too many of good deeds rather than harm. Its presence in abundance and its quality makes it a favorite for many food industries. MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) is a common solution if the food industry that helps in fighting food decay. Oxygen is present everywhere and it is reactive as compared to nitrogen. Hence if its percentage in food packets is more then it supports bacterial growth. This will lead to spoilage of food items in packages. On the contrary, Nitrogen does not support bacterial growth and provides food in the packages with longer shelf life.

There are some food items that are having a real benefit from the MAP. To list some of them,

  • Coffee
  • Rice
  • Pasta and noodles
  • Rice
  • Biscuits
  • Packed sandwiches and many more food items

PSA Nitrogen Plants

The reason why we should use Nitrogen for MAP is because of its properties. It is colorless and odorless. It has the characteristics of being inert and do not add any kind of taste to the product. Nitrogen is a dry gas. Hence, with all these golden properties that it has, we prefer using nitrogen in place of any other gas.

Nitrogen for MAP is available to the industries either by cylinder or by bulk liquid nitrogen. Manufacturers like Trimech India make nitrogen available to industries through transport. But we suggest that it is better to have an onsite nitrogen generation plant to avoid transportation of nitrogen cylinders. Remember that this is a cost-effective method as well it is hassle free. The industry owners interested in MAP for food packaging should also note that besides cost friendly, it adds to the convenience.
