Pandemic Food Trends Increase Demand For Headspace Analyzers

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 9, 2021 / -- One major theme that will continue in 2021 is maximizing human health and immunity. More and more companies are launching foods with immunity-boosting ingredients, from zero preservatives to exotic superfoods such as algae and ancient grains.

Food manufacturers are quickly moving to fulfill this new demand that includes extension of food shelf life and eliminating preservatives. Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) technology is the leading facilitator. MAP technology extends shelf life by reducing oxidation and spoilage of perishable food and beverage products. 

MAP employs gases such as nitrogen and carbon dioxide to reduce the oxygen content within a food package. To verify correct gas concentrations, food headspace analyzers are used to measure the modified gas concentrations of nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and in some cases even carbon monoxide.

“Headspace analyzers are becoming an imperative tool for food manufacturers to ensure shelf life and maximize quality,” Dr. Koz, founder and chief engineer, Forensics Detectors, says. “In most cases, nitrogen is used to extend the shelf life. Manufacturers require a simple to use oxygen headspace analyzer for daily use”.

Forensics Detectors launches their FD-600 Headspace analyzer series that starts at $595 and offers analyzers with a combination of oxygen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide detection capability.

About Headspace Analyzers

Modified Atmosphere Package (MAP) analyzers are used to ensure that the residual oxygen in a product complies with predefined limits. This is a vital part of the Quality Control of Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) products. For packaged foods and other goods, exceeding these limits increases the risk of growth and proliferation of bacteria or mould, which causes spoilage and results in shorter product shelf-life.
