Freshline® MAP Gas Selector

Identify the ideal gas mixture for your food product

Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), gas flush or gas flushing is a proven and known method to extend the shelf life and quality of food products. It uses a specific single gas or a cocktail of gases (composed of nitrogen, oxygen and/or CO2) to create a protective atmosphere around the food. This protective atmosphere, combined with appropriate packaging material and, in many cases, lowered temperatures, preserves the taste, safety and appearance of the food for longer.

With decades of experience in MAP, Air Products has run numerous trials and built knowledge about the ideal gas mixture for each food type. This tool was created to help you identify the right gas mix for your product.
