MAP in the Dairy and Ice Cream Industries

MAP is food packaging in which the earth’s normal breathable atmosphere has been modified in some way. Usually combined with lowered temperatures, it is a highly effective method for extending the shelf-life of food. Air Products’ Freshline® food grade gases will help extend your dairy and ice cream products’ shelf life, improving quality and minimising waste. Our experts will help you choose the right food gas mixtures, depending on your products and production processes.

Oxygen

Oxygen causes oxidative deterioration of foods and is required for the growth of aerobic micro-organisms. Generally, oxygen should be excluded in MAP but there are often good reasons for it to be present in controlled quantities including: to maintain a fresh, natural colour (fresh meat), to maintain respiration
