Nitrogen for food processes

Nitrogen gas has several uses in retail food and services establishment. Its liquid form is used as a freezing agent in food preservation as well as preparation of rapid freezing of foods, to chill beverages rapidly and to process dry herbs. In the preservation of frozen foods, where mechanical means are unavailable, dry ice is the best thing to use. Liquid nitrogen and dry ice, both things are used for their smoke effect in food & beverages to enhance the presentation and consumer appeal.


Nitrogen can be used to process a wide variety of foods, including meat, poultry, seafood, fruits, vegetables, pasta, dairy products, baked goods, and prepared meals.

Nitrogen for food freezing

Cryogenic freezing, an extremely low-temperature, helps in smaller weight losses from dehydration when compared with traditional mechanical freezing. The company manufacturing frozen food can, therefore, preserve the quality of their products with a freezing system that utilizes liquid nitrogen. Because of its very cold temperature, the cryogenic system helps to freeze food within minutes. This faster freezing forms small ice crystal that let the product hold moisture and quality for a longer time. Moreover, liquid nitrogen helps to remove heat from other processes to reduce cycle time, help prevent microbial growth and increase production throughout.

Nitrogen for food packaging

Nitrogen for food packaging is used across the world.  It is also used for Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) to help preserve the quality of food. This method is used for minimally processed foods like meat, fruits, vegetables,and fish. The gas in the package is determined by the material or product that is packed and the temperature that suits for its storage. By replacing oxygen with nitrogen the shelf life of products can be significantly extended. Nitrogen helps the food look, taste and smell good for a long period of time.

MVS Engineering Pvt. Ltd. is a leading manufacturer and exporter of on-site gas generation systems around the world.  The company manufactures world-class technology based generators of nitrogen for food processes that best suit the need of industry.
