First, we must understand the requirements of food protection
The chemical composition, physical and chemical properties of different foods are different. Therefore, the protection requirements of different foods on packaging are different. For example, the cake is containing more fat, soft, have a certain optimum water content, so at least should meet the following requirements: anti oil oxygen barrier (to prevent oil leakage and oil oxidation), high resistance (to prevent loss of moisture wet cake dry and hard). Again, the tea packaging should be of high oxygen resistance (to prevent the oxidation of active ingredients), high resistance (wet damp moldy tea), high Zuguang (tea of the chlorophyll in the sunlight role will change), high resistance (tea aroma of molecular aroma components easily distributed, and lost the taste of tea. In addition, tea is also easy to absorb odors), and currently on the market a considerable part of the tea is common PE, PP transparent plastic bags, waste much of effective ingredients of tea, tea quality can not be guaranteed.
Two. Choose the packing material to protect the function
Traditional packaging materials are mainly glass bottles, metal cans, cartons, cartons. Modern food packaging materials are the main types of plastic, paper, composite materials (plastic / plastic, plastic and plastic / paper / aluminum foil / paper / plastic, such as various types of multilayer composite materials), glass bottles, metal cans etc.. The details are as follows:
Composite is one of the most widely used and widely used flexible packaging materials. At present, there are more than 30 kinds of plastic used for food packaging, and there are hundreds of multilayer composites containing plastics. Composite materials usually use 2-6 layers, but special needs can be up to 10 layers or more. The plastic, paper or paper machine, aluminum foil and other substrate, scientific and reasonable combination or combination of compatibility, almost can meet the requirements of various kinds of food packaging. For example, Tetra Pak milk made from multilayer materials, such as plastic / paperboard / aluminum / plastics, can last up to six months to one year. Some high barrier flexible packaging canned meat shelf life of up to 3 years, the composite packaging cake shelf-life of up to some developed countries for more than a year, a year after the cake nutrition, color, smell and taste, shape and microbial content still meet the requirements. The design of composite packaging should pay special attention to the selection of the base material of each layer. The collocation must be scientific and reasonable, and the comprehensive performance of each layer must meet the comprehensive requirements of food packaging.
China's food packaging plastic as many as fifteen, six, such as PE, PP, PS, PET, PA, PVDC, EVA, PVA, EVOH, PVC, ionic bond resin, etc.. The high oxygen PVA, EVOH, PVDC, PET, PA, high humidity resistance are PVDC, PP, PE etc.; resistance to radiation such as PS low temperature resistant aromatic nylon; such as PE, EVA, POET, PA etc.; oil resistance and mechanical properties as well as the ionic bonding resin. PA and PET, namely high temperature sterilization and low temperature resistance, such as PET, PA etc.. The monomer structure of various plastics is different, the degree of polymerization is different, the type and quantity of additives are different, and the performance is different, even if the same plastic, different grades, nature will be different. Therefore, it is necessary to choose the proper combination of plastic or plastic and other materials according to the requirements. Improper selection may lead to lower food quality and even the loss of food value. For example, a northeast PVC plastic corrugated box corrugated cartons instead of apple, because the PVC barrier properties of carbon dioxide and oxygen, water is much more than the carton air resistance and moisture resistance, so that apple can not maintain a breath, resulting in a large number of decay.
3. Paper and paperboard
Modern packaging mainly used all kinds of processing potato (cardboard), composite paper, laminated paper (cardboard), such as polymer processing paper, wax paper processing, oil processing paper, glass paper, parchment, paper, paper / aluminum foil laminated paper. In the transport packaging, corrugated cardboard consumption is the largest, corrugated boxes, trays almost replaced the wooden box. Honeycomb cartons are the latest high strength cardboard containers. In addition, it should be noted, Metallized paper, plastic and paper / foil laminated materials, plastic / aluminum foil laminated material internal structure, properties and cost, should be based on different protection requirements and cost requirements of proper selection.
Three, the use of advanced packaging technology
In order to prolong the shelf life of food products, the new packaging technology development, such as active packaging, mouldproof packaging, moisture-proof packaging, anti fog packaging, anti-static packaging, selective permeability packaging, packing slip, cushion packaging, the developed countries apply these new technologies, China is not universally used, some methods also belongs to the blank. Application of these techniques can significantly improve the protective function.
