Enhanced Shelf Life and Preservation Techniques in Grain and Pulses Packaging

Enhanced Shelf Life and Preservation Techniques in Grain and Pulses Packaging

Grains and pulses are staple food items worldwide, making their preservation and packaging essential for maintaining quality and extending shelf life. With the advent of automatic packaging machinesthe industry has seen significant improvements in storing & distributing these products.

It is vital to deliver your products with the correct packaging. It plays a crucial role in preserving the freshness, nutritional value, and overall quality of grains and pulses. But it also keeps the trust of your consumers. Poor packaging can lead to moisture ingress, pest infestation, and oxidation, resulting in spoilage and wastage of the valuable product.

Let us explore how our state-of-the-art machines, such as the automatic packaging machinegrain filling machine, and sachet filling machine are revolutionizing grain and pulse packaging.

Here’s how Nichrome’s grain packaging machines make a difference –

  1. Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)

Our machines are high-end-tech machines that ensure Modified Atmosphere Packaging that involves altering the atmospheric composition inside the packaging to extend the shelf life of your products. By reducing oxygen levels and increasing nitrogen or carbon dioxide, MAP technology inhibits the growth of aerobic bacteria and fungi, preserving the quality of grains and pulses. 

  • Vacuum Packaging

Vacuum packaging removes air from the package before sealing, creating a vacuum that reduces the risk of oxidation and spoilage. This technique is particularly effective for extending the shelf life of pulses and high-fat grains prone to rancidity.

  • High-Barrier Films

High-barrier films are specialized materials that prevent moisture, oxygen, and light from penetrating the packaging. Our machines use the best-quality films which are essential for protecting grains and pulses from environmental factors that can degrade their quality.

  • Sealing and Lamination 

Advanced sealing and laminating technologies ensure that packaging is airtight and durable. These techniques prevent contamination and enhance the overall integrity of the packaging.
