Basic essentials for maintaining shelf life: only work if your hands are clean or you are wearing gloves, and only work on a clean surface and with implements which are free of product residue.
Use products which are as fresh as possible. In this way you will achieve the maximum shelf life, and aromas will also be retained as much as possible.
The colder the product to be packed is, the higher the vacuum which can be physically achieved, and this means the longer the shelf life of the product.
Information about the vacuum pouch
The vacuum pouch should be generously sized. Make sure when filling the pouch that the pouch neck remains clean. Use boilable film pouches, if the content has to be heated up at a later stage. Special shrink pouches enable excess pouch material to be shrunk back by dipping in hot water.
Products containing liquid can be positioned conveniently with the sloping insert and the magnetic angle bracket. If the liquid begins to boil (formation of bubbles), the maximum vacuum has been reached. End the evacuation process by pressing the vacuum quick-stop button.
Modified atmosphere packaging
Inert gas protects the pack content against mechanical stress and it extends its shelf life. The chamber machine has to be equipped with a gas flushing system, and the modified atmosphere must be matched to the pack content.
More than 50 years ago, Sepp Haggenmüller, the founder of the MULTIVAC company, supplied his first chamber machine to a butcher's shop. And even today, there is no other sector where vacuum packing has so many self-evident and useful benefits.
