In modified atmosphere packaging (MAP packaging) the ambient air inside the packaging is replaced by a product-adapted gas mixture to maintain the shape, color and freshness of the product. The modified atmosphere usually consists of carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen.
The main advantage of packaging in a modified atmosphere is to ensure the longer life of the product. In addition, the quality of the product is ensured, the use of gases in the packaging avoids enzymatic and biochemical alteration, as well as avoiding the growth of bacteria. This means that the taste of the product remains unchanged and the need to use additional chemicals and preservatives is eliminated.
