Cheese processing

Air Liquide has global experience in use of gases for cheese processing and packaging applications. Carbon dioxide is used for chilling, adjusting acidity and packaging. Shredded cheese if very commonly packaged with a blend of carbon dioxide and nitrogen, both of which are fungistatic and prevents clumping of the shredded products. The fungistatic properties of ALIGAL™ result in extended shelf life.
