Nitrogen Generators for Food Packaging

Dominick Hunter

Many processes in the food and beverage industry require a supply of nitrogen gas. Potato chips, nuts, tortilla chips and other snackfoods have their packaging filled with nitrogen gas to preserve their freshness and extend shelf-life. This technology, known as Modified Atmosphere Packaging, is also applied to many other foodstuffs, including yoghurt, cheese, fruit juice, soft drinks, dried coffee, dried milk and even naan breads. domnick hunter MAXIGAS nitrogen generators supply the nitrogen that ensures these products reach consumers in the very best condition.
