Application Of Gas Packaging For Shelflife Extension Of Food

The application of MAP using various gas mixtures has been used successfully by many food-processing and food-packaging companies around the world to extend the shelf life and retain quality of a variety of food products. Examples of food products currently gas packaged as well as the composition of gas mixtures used to extend the shelf life of each product are shown in Table 5. The optimum blend of gases for a specific product can be determined not simply by trial and error but only through a detailed, systematic study of the interdependent variables influencing product shelf life. These include the physical, chemical, and microbiological composition of the food product, the expected shelf life of the product under the normal storage conditions, and the choice of packaging film of correct gas-and moisture vapor-permeability characteristics. The application of MAP involving gas mixtures for shelf life extension of selected food groups is briefly reviewed.
