What is Modified Atmosphere Packaging or MAP

moldy and spoiled oranges

Modified Atmosphere Packaging or "MAP", is a proven technology that was developed to ensure that packaged food products stay fresh and attractive for as long as possible. Used by food packaging industry since the 1930s'

Everyone knows that food does not stay fresh forever. Bread and chips stale, cheese dries and gets moldy, meat develops a brown color and an "off" smell, fruit and vegetables get slimy and spoil, even wine will oxidize.                                                                                                           

Oxygen in the air can cause a process of decay called oxidation.  MAP is an exchange of air inside a package to extend the shelf life of food and other products.

Mapwae bowl with Natural Preserve

Mapware bowls and Zip-N-Zap bags allow the application of MAP inside the container, extending the shelf life of stored products                                                                                                 

                                                            Natural and organic                                                             

Note: Nothing is sprayed on the food. The air is simply exchanged around the food or "blanketed"
