What role plays the protective atmosphere?
Powdered infant milks have a long use by date of 24 months. During the packaging of the powder in the tin , in order to preserve all the nutritional and sensorial qualities of the product, the composition of the air in the tin is modified (inerting phase). The oxygen is taken out and we concentrate with nitrogen and carbon dioxide naturally present in the air.
Oxygen stimulates the deterioration of the powder whereas nitrogen and carbon dioxide are neutral gases for the product.
As the normal composition of the air is 79% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and less than 1% CO2, we recommend to use the product within the 4 weeks of opening of the tin.
