During inerting, air and the oxygen it contains is displaced by an inert gas. Inert gases are gases which are very unreactive, such as, for example, nitrogen and carbon dioxide, as well as all noble gases. Many oils and fats, including butter and products containing fat such as nuts, tend to exhibit losses in quality through auto-oxidation when coming into contact with oxygen. Storing these products under an inert gas protects from losses in quality, increases oxidation stability and improves ageing resistance.
Inerting with nitrogen to protect the product.
- Protection from losses in quality
- Longer shelf-life
- Simple to install
- Low investment costs
