And if it’s not small insects, it is oxidation that forms a threat to the quality of food: it causes foods to go off, i.e. fats and oils becoming rancid.

Contactless and non-invasive measurements of oxygen in food packaging

Posted by Masterpack Group B.V. on 8 januari 2019 11:37:52 CET

Oxygen inside the packaging of food or beverages can lead to oxidation of the product causing rancidity or product deterioration. The optimal oxygen storage levels can vary depending on the packed product. Using the Masterpack Modified Atmosphere technique, you can control the composition of the gas atmosphere within the packaging. This mostly means reducing oxygen levels and other gasses to create the right conditions for prolonged shelf life for any product. However, controlling the gas composition after filling is not only about putting the right gas mixture in, it also means keeping it optimal for prolonged periods.

How to handle pest control through Modified Atmosphere in bulk packaging
