Have you noticed how much easier it is to find healthy, pre-packaged food options these days? Pre-packaged food used to be full of salts and preservatives. Your choices were limited to food that had already been cooked and was then frozen and ready for re-heating before you could dig in to it. Today, we have many more fresh, raw food options giving consumers some healthy choices for quick-fix meals or snacks on the go.
MAP Makes Fresh Frozen Food Possible
The reason for this explosion in options can be traced back to food grade industrial gases. Mississauga consumers have no doubt noticed the variety of fresh, great-tasting food options they can buy thanks to these gases. Food grade industrial gases most often include Nitrogen, Oxygen, and Carbon Dioxide. These three gases help make “Modified Atmosphere Packaging” (MAP) possible. MAP packaging enhances a food’s shelf life while still retaining the natural flavors and nutritional benefits of the food. It’s used to package fresh fruits and vegetables, but also fish, seafood, meat, poultry, and even baked goods.
MAP gases are specifically chosen for their odourless, colourless, non-toxic qualities. When combined in the right amounts these three gases can be used to create unique gas mixtures that preserve many different kinds of foods. Together with advances in freezing, chilling, and packaging technologies, these industrial gases are finding their way to kitchens all around the country.
- Preserve taste, texture, and colour of foods.
- Ensure food consumption safety.
- Extend food shelf life.
- Reduce food waste and business losses.
