Dairy Product Shelf Life Extension via
CO2 Injection

Our affordable and successful process will substantially increase the shelf life of your dairy product without sacrificng the freshness, quality, and taste customers demand.

Injecting controlled amounts of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into dairy products inhibits the growth of microorganisms that cause spoilage. This process has been successful when used in the production of cottage cheese, milk, yogurts and ice cream products.

The injection of CO2 into cottage cheese has proven successful by many U.S. dairies. Our process injects CO2 into the cottage cheese's cream dressing prior to being mixed with the curds, or into the mixed product just prior to packaging. The amount of CO2 injected varies according to the individual product's weight and process, but typically ranges from 400 to 1,000ppm.

Every cottage cheese producer who has initiated our process is experiencing product shelf lives ranging from 40 to 60 days and are applying the sell dates accordingly.

Several U.S. dairies are utilizing our system to inject CO2 into raw concentrate (intended for cheese production) as it is being loaded onto transport trailers. The CO2 injected prevents the proliferation of microorganisms and reduces the level of enzyme activity, insuring that each delivery is as fresh as it was on the day of shipment.
