Sapli machines can provide up to 0,5% redusial oxygen inside.
Snacks and Nuts
Snack products, for example potato chips or nuts, primarily involve issues related with the fat content of the food. There is a risk of oxidation, whereby the items can quickly become rancid if the container is not optimal. To extend the shelf life, it is in this manner imperative to limit the contact with oxygen.
