Milk Powder Packaging

Packaging of milk powder with MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) system, increases its shelf life and avoid product rancidity.

Milk Powder Packaging is a highly sensitive process that requires careful handling and preservation to avoid spoilage and rancidity. Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) is one of the popular methods used to increase the shelf life of milk powder. The MAP system replaces the air inside the packaging with a protective gas mixture, mainly nitrogen.

The use of nitrogen in milk powder packaging offers numerous benefits such as:

  • It helps in reducing oxygen levels in the packaging and hence prevents oxidation and spoilage.
  • It provides an inert atmosphere to the product, ensuring a stable and consistent quality of milk powder.
  • It increases the shelf life of the product and helps to preserve the natural flavor and aroma of the milk powder.

NOVAIR in-house modular nitrogen generators are an efficient and cost-effective way to generate nitrogen in-house. With NOVAIR nitrogen generators, milk powder packaging facilities can produce nitrogen gas as needed, eliminating the need for nitrogen deliveries and reducing supply chain costs.

In conclusion, the use of nitrogen in Milk Powder Packaging is crucial to maintaining product quality, reducing spoilage, and increasing shelf life. NOVAIR in-house modular nitrogen generators provide a reliable and cost-effective solution for generating nitrogen in-house, ensuring a continuous and efficient supply of nitrogen gas for MAP applications.
