Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), also known as protective gas packs, are created by evacuating some or all of the air and replacing it with a protective gas mixture (gas flushing). The pack is then hermetically sealed. Extra dense films help ensure that the packaging atmosphere does not escape, and prevent the penetration of ambient air into the pack.
