Durable freshness, appetizing appearance, bubbly effervescence – as consumers, that’s what we look for when buying food. Gases for the food and beverage industry preserve the existing qualities of products.
Gases are often used already during production – to freeze and package vegetables and meat, for example, or to prepare dough for baked goods or ripen bananas. Beverage containers withstand careless handling because gas stabilizes the paper-thin plastic shells from within.
Gases are also used to cool down sausage products under controlled processing conditions, mix free flowing bulk solids, and transform liquid products/pastes into granulated powders. When transporting fresh and frozen food products, gases help maintain a seamless cold chain.
