At Bottle Gases, we provide many different gases suitable for a wide range of applications. Our nitrogen gas cylinders are no exception. For example, they can be used for motorsports and air conditioners, but they also play an essential role in the food and drinks industry, particularly within preservation.

Nitrogen Gas for Food Packaging

Nitrogen has been used for many years for food preservation. This is because foods often feature reactive chemicals, and oxygen can be harmful to packaged foods. Inert gas nitrogen offers an excellent replacement, preserving freshness and protecting the nutrients. Nitrogen in food packaging also prevents aerobic microbial growth.

Keeping food fresh and prolonging shelf life is a major challenge for food manufacturers everywhere. Food grade nitrogen is one of the most efficient ways to slow food deterioration during the packing process. By flushing, the food packaging with nitrogen gas, oxygen and other contaminants are displaced, and oxidation of the product is reduced. This helps mitigate premature spoilage and keeps the food fresh for longer.

Food grade nitrogen is odourless, colourless and tasteless, so using the gas will not impact the quality or taste of the food. When using nitrogen in food processing, a 99% gas concentration is required for full effectiveness.

If you regularly use nitrogen in food packaging, preparation or processing, always ensure you buy high-quality gas from a reputable supplier like Bottle Gases.

Nitrogen Cylinders for Wine Preservation

You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for nitrogen gas for wine preservation and dispensing. Wine will react with oxygen as soon as it is exposed to the air, so the original quality can be preserved for longer by topping or flushing wine with food-grade nitrogen.

Food grade nitrogen is suitable for restaurants, wine bars and wine merchants who are dispensing high volumes of wine and are mainly concerned with preserving the quality of the product. Using nitrogen in wine preservation can significantly reduce the amount of wastage, leading to improvements in gross profit and more accurate stock holding.
