MAP Package Your Dried Foods for Improved Product Shelf Life

Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) of your dried food products like nuts, chips, and snack foods, increases the shelf life of your dried products. Your challenge as a quality professional and technical expert in Dried Foods production are many. You need to ensure your dried goods 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. Ensuring your dried food is properly packaged is complex, but worthwhile to make your products last.

At AMETEK MOCON, we our 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 dried 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 dried food product will be after packaging.
