- Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) – oxygen is usually used for packaging: fruit and vegetables - oxygen allows the product to breathe and retain its freshness. red meat – oxygen is used to maintain the colour of the meat. If the meat turns brown or grey, that means that concentration of oxygen is too low. - Preparation of Drinking water - Inerting
BIOGON® N – Nitrogen for food and beverage
Food grade nitrogen is used in:
- Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) applications to prevent pack collapse - In food packaging, nitrogen gas is used to eliminate the oxygen in the atmosphere, thus minimizing the growth of micro-organisms and the oxidation of fat. - Quick freezing and cooling - Inerting - Wine treatment - In the storing and bottling of wines and oils, nitrogen is used as an inert gas to eliminate oxidation and extend the shelf-life of the products.
We offer a wide range of two or three-component BIOGON® food grade gas mixtures of food grade oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
Depending on your product characteristics, we supply customized gas mixtures, in varying percentages of oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen.
We will work with you to assess your process and site requirements to develop the right gas mixture for the food packed. Get in touch with our experts to find the gas mixture most suitable for your product.
BANARG® is the food grade gas mixture that contains 96% of Nitrogen (N2) and 4% of Ethen (C2H2).
