Food Grade Gases

The food industry has special demands on the quality of gases. Food grade gases are defined as gases used as a processing aid and/or additive in order to ensure compliance with standards.

You can count on Minneapolis Oxygen to provide carbon dioxide (CO₂), nitrogen (N₂), oxygen (O₂), and other food grade gases in cylinders, as well as liquids in insulated tanks, for mixing at packaging machines.

Longer-lasting quality, visual appeal, sparkling freshness—gases perform a variety of tasks in the food industry. The primary purpose of these applications is to preserve a product’s existing quality. This means that gases are often used at the production stage. Typical applications include freezing and packing, cooling during mixing processes and carbonation of beverages.
