Testing The Packaging Integrity Of Snack Foods

Maintaining shelf life of packaged snack foods is a continuous challenge as most snack foods are moisture and oxygen sensitive. Mold, oxidation, flavor degradation, and spoilage are all results of compromised package integrity. Popular package formats for snack foods include flexible, packaging, composite cans, and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). While each package provides its own unique benefits and product appeal, each format presents its own unique challenge to insure package and seal integrity.
