1. Carbon dioxide in modified atmosphere packaging

Different methods can detect the edibility status of modified atmosphere packaging: by detecting the concentration of key carbon dioxide gas in the modified atmosphere packaging, the edibility limit of the modified atmosphere packaging can be judged. Therefore, the time temperature label is no longer based on time, and the environmental temperature change is an indicative parameter.


On the air conditioner packaging cover, the smart label is embedded in a layer of film. In an environment with carbon dioxide, the label is yellow, but the color is the same before opening the package, the carbon dioxide is released, the ambient gas changes, the label officially starts timing, and the indicator light Produce the corresponding color change.
