Abstract: To study the dynamics of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), a complete dynamic and integrated mathematical MAP model was developed. The main objective of MAP is preserving product quality by reducing the rate of the metabolic processes of the packed product. This study describes how keeping quality, in relation to the gas exchange rate of the packed product, is incorporated in the MAP model. Simulations, under several constant and dynamic conditions, show the effect of MAP on keeping quality of the packed product.
