Selecting the ideal gas or gas mixture for each product.
The most suitable gases, recommended by Nippon Gases, in combination with the appropriate packaging materials, significantly extend food product shelf life and preserve its organoleptic and nutritional characteristics.

The use of modified atmospheres allows to obtain positive results on many types of food, both perishable and not: an adequate protective atmosphere retard spoilage, and protect product flavor, aroma, and texture. To prevent oxidation and bacterial growth, oxygen is removed from the package by replacing the air with nitrogen or nitrogen - carbon dioxide mixtures.

When packaging fresh meat, it is necessary to maintain a high percentage of oxygen which acts on a pigment called hemoglobin, thus helping to maintain the bright red color of the meat.
