Active Packaging Technology®
JerkyFresh packets are oxygen absorbers designed specifically to protect all types of jerky against spoilage, mold growth, rancidity, and loss of color and flavor quality. JerkyFresh packets irreversibly absorb oxygen inside sealed packaging to less than 0.01% and maintain this level. JerkyFresh oxygen absorbers are available in a variety of sizes to meet your needs. For high-speed packaging operations, JerkyFresh packets can be inserted into your package using one of our Multisorb APA® custom engineered dispensers.
When used in combination with your current packaging methods, including atmospheric, gas flushing and vacuum packaging, JerkyFresh packets deoxygenate the internal packaging environment before oxidative product damage can occur. Other packaging methods leave oxygen behind, leading to food spoilage, off odors, and mold growth. JerkyFresh packets modify the internal package atmosphere, reducing the oxygen level below that possible with other packaging methods.
|JerkyFresh Packets||Reduces and maintains oxygen content in packaging to below 0.01%||Limits growth of aerobic spoilage organisms and oxidative degradation of color, flavor, and lipids.|
|Vacuum and Back Flush||Reduces, but does not eliminate, initial oxygen and offers no protection from oxygen that permeates the packaging over time||Provides limited shelf life extension over atmospheric packs|
|Gas Flushing||Reduces headspace but not the oxygen content of the remaining headspace||Provides only limited shelf life extension|
