So, what is nitrogen?

Nitrogen is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that makes up about 78% of Earth's atmosphere. As an essential element, it is also a crucial component in various food applications. In the food industry, nitrogen is used for food preservation and as an inert gas to prevent oxidation, spoilage, and contamination. It is also used in the production of frozen foods, such as ice cream, where it is added to create a smoother and creamier texture. Additionally, nitrogen is used in the packaging of chips, nuts, and other snack foods to extend shelf life and maintain freshness. Overall, nitrogen plays a vital role in ensuring the quality and safety of our food supply.
