Increase the Shelf Life of Your Cereal and Grain Products

Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) of your cereal and grain products like rice, corn, wheat, and millet, increases the shelf life of your cereals and grains. Your challenge as a quality professional and technical expert in the Cereal and Grain Industry are many. You need to ensure your cereal/grain products are in a modified atmosphere package (MAP) to meet shelf life requirements. You need to ensure that MAP is maintained from initial packaging through to when it is used by the end customer – which means rugged packaging with no leaks! You also need to ensure your packaging material has the right permeability properties so that your MAP is preserved. MAP processing your cereal/grains is complex, but worthwhile to make your products last.

At AMETEK MOCON, we are experts in modified atmosphere packaging QA/QC and barrier film testing and have pioneered a variety of MAP package testing tools to ensure your packaged cereal/grain products last. Our Gas Mixers and Online MAP Gas Analyzers are used to control and monitor the gas composition needed for your goods. Our Headspace Gas Analyzers and Leak Detectors provide the quality control you need to confidently ship your products to market. In addition, our permeation analyzers are used to measure the oxygen and water vapor transmission through packaging to ensure you know what the gas surrounding your cereal/grain goods will be after packaging. From MAP QA to MAP and package QC, we have the testing equipment for packaged goods.
