Mitsubishi Gas Chemical America has introduced NutraSave, a film layer for flexible packaging designed to keep food fresher and minimize food waste and costs.
NutraSave removes oxygen trapped within sealed packages to safely extend and protect original food flavors, aromas and textures without the need for sachets or packets. Ideal for retort packaging applications, NutraSave protects products such as soups, sauces, processed fruit, dips, protein bars, prepared meals and wet pet foods, as well as natural and organic products that are particularly vulnerable to food spoilage.
Available as a resin to North American film producers and converters, NutraSave is FDA compliant and can efficiently run on legacy processing systems. NutraSave also eliminates the need for additional sodium, spices and other additives to counteract the effects of high heat required in retort processing.
NutraSave’s ability to extend product shelf life addresses concerns about food waste, which are top of mind for retailers and consumers alike.
“NutraSave will help food manufacturers build greater consumer preference and brand loyalty for their natural and organic and gluten-free products,” said Sean Hael, Mitsubishi Gas Chemical marketing and sales manager. “We offer food processors a free-assessment to determine the increased shelf life that NutraSave will bring to their brands.”
