Oil migration is prevented with food packaging

Related tags Packaging

A food packaging system that prevents the migration of oils while retaining food aroma and taste, is said to be proving popular with brand owners.

The technology proved itself for the packaging of cake slices containing alcohol, where good protection against grease was also required, says Chapelton, the UK distributor for Smurfit Kappa’s Adsorption Technology MB12.

In this case, the customer also requested a board of recycled quality, yet one that protected the packaging from organic migration while maintaining the taste and aroma of the cake slices.

The central adsorption layer in the recycled board retains any organics that might migrate from products, allowing existing carton designs to be retained.

The MB12 technology is said to reduce the migration of any organic substance by 99%, and has been tested for a shelf-life of more than 12 months. Its food safety has been certified by independent testing laboratories, Chapelton adds.
