Active Packaging Technology®
FreshPax® S Packets are a patented solution that extend the shelf life and maintain the product characteristics of packaged foods. It is unique in that it has both oxygen and moisture regulating capabilities.
By inhibiting oxidative and moisture-mediated degradation, FreshPax S Packets help maintain food product characteristics such as flavor, aroma, texture, and mouth feel. It can be tailored to individual applications, providing a customized solution based on product characteristics and shelf life expectations in packaged foods.
FreshPax S Packets are formulated to absorb oxygen from a package while maintaining an equilibrium relative humidity (ERH) within the package near the water activity (aw) of the food. This can be done for high moisture, intermediate moisture, and low moisture foods down to 25% ERH.
FreshPax S Packets maintain a moisture balance by acting as a moisture absorber that protects food product characteristics, like texture and mouth feel. This approach is particularly effective for prepared foods with multiple components where aw must be tightly maintained (e.g., refrigerated pizza and pocket sandwiches).
FreshPax S Packets can control the ERH within a package at a level below the point at which harmful organisms can grow. By maintaining product integrity and inhibiting oxygen and moisture-mediated degradation, FreshPax S Packets greatly extend the shelf life of both refrigerated and shelf-stable products.
FreshPax S Packets minimize the need for BHA, BHT, sulfur dioxide, sorbates, benzoates, and other food preservatives. FreshPax S Packets are available in a wide variety of sizes and formats and can be inserted into almost any package.
FreshPax S Packets can be hand inserted or automatically inserted using the FreshPax System. The FreshPax System combines the advantages of FreshPax Packets with the proven reliability of Multisorb’s APA-series of FreshPax Packet Dispensers. The dispenser is custom manufactured to work exclusively with FreshPax Packets, providing unmatched dependability. The system is compatible with a variety of packaging lines including horizontal flow wrappers, multicavity HFFS, VFFS, bottling lines, thermoformed pouching, and other layouts.
