Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a core component of cooling, chilling, and freezing. This element helps your food products maintain a decent taste and texture with proper temperature control. Since CO2 is a natural preservative, it reduces the need for added preservatives in food packaging. This is ideal for keeping food like meats and cheeses fresh by slowing down the growth of bacteria and mold.
Carbon dioxide is also a necessary ingredient for carbonated beverages such as soft drinks and beer. It creates the fizzy “bubbles” that are crucial for pressurization.
