BIOGON® C - Food Grade Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide inhibits growth of many fungi and bacteria and as it has higher density than air it provides good blanketing properties. 

Applications and use:

    - Modified Atmosphere Packaging
    - Freezing & Cooling
    - Carbonation of beverage products

BIOGON® O – Oxygen for food and beverage 

Food grade oxygen is used in: 

    - 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.
