Nitrogen Food Grade

Food grade gas with a wide variety of applications. Available as a compressed gas or as a cryogenic liquid in a range of volumes.

N2

Nitrogen Food Grade, gaseous or liquid, is widely used for food applications: blanketing, controlled atmosphere storage, modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), sparging, food freezing and chilling, and grain fumigation. In cryogenic liquid format, liquid nitrogen is often abbreviated as 'LIN'.

Uses

  • Combined with carbon dioxide (CO2) and oxygen for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) applications.
  • When used in combination with lowered temperatures, it is usually a highly effective method for extending the shelf-life of food.
