For those who still do not know, it is a food storage system, which can be considered one of the most widespread and efficiant available these days. It works by extracting the air from the packing, which is to be considered the primary responsible for the deterioration of food. Herewith all you need to know about vacuum packaging and its pros. Vacuum packaging is a very simple technique. All you need is a vacuum machine and a PA/PE pouch.
Air is extracted from the bag and the packed food, due to the lack of contact with the air and therefore with oxygen ( the primary cause of oxidation ), has a longer Shelf Life.This process used to be a specific packaging system used by big industries only, but today is well spread among small realities and becoming a method of storage for everyone. Vacuum packaging is a safe storage system, because it separates and protects food material from microbes and bacteria present in the environment. Storage times vary greatly depending on the type of food; can be from a minimum of two days up to a maximum of two years. Food stays unchanged in appearance, taste and nutritional values.
Thanks to the air intake, the packaged food will no longer be in contact with oxygen, consequently we will no longer have bacterial proliferation; the food will last three times longer than traditional refrigerator packaging.
Vacuum storage inhibits the development of aerobic bacteria, slows the normal oxidation process by oxygen and stabilizes the quality level of the organoleptic values. In this way the freshness, aroma and taste of each food will be unaltered, as if the product were fresh.
Vacuum packaging allows us to store food in portion, exactly in the doses we need, avoiding any waste of money and food. A very useful methodology not only in the professional field, such as for restaurants and catering, but also in the home sector.
Vacuum food storage offers the opportunity to concentrate food purchases and then divide them into daily portions to be kept as fresh.
The use of vacuum food bags helps to keep your refrigerator in order and eliminates bad smells.
