Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP)
Determination of gas volume inside sealed packs is important in establishing the correct gas:product volume ratio - a crucial factor in modified atmosphere packaging.
Gas headspace analysis can accurately measure the oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen composition in the headspace of sealed flexible or rigid packages, including metal packaging.
Campden BRI’s packaging team can pack products within selected modified atmosphere gas mixes for trials and assessment in a range of rigid and flexible packaging formats, using our new Dansensor gas mixer, Multivac machine and Proseal tray sealer.
Samples can be returned to the manufacturer or stored for further evaluation.
Campden BRI offers a complete shelf life evaluation service. Product can be stored from -18°C up to 40°C with temperature cycling to mimic abuse if desired. Products can be tested at suitable time points for relevant organisms, assessed by trained quality assessors and chemical analysis can be incorporated where appropriate.
