Bloated Food Packaging: What It Really Means

You know how when you pick up a bag of chips, it feels like it’s swollen with air? A lot of the time, it’s not a mistake on the part of the packing. Some items, like chips, have extra air inside to keep the fragile innards from getting crushed while they’re being shipped. Because there is extra room here, your chips will be as crispy as you want them to be.

 

 

But some things come in boxes that don’t have any air in them at all. This is especially true for foods that go bad quickly, like cheese and sausages. Because there is no air, dangerous germs can’t grow, so the food stays fresh and safe until it gets to your table.

When being bloated isn’t a bad thing 

Food that is swollen doesn’t always mean that it has gone bad. Microorganisms that live in foods that go bad quickly, on the other hand, often cause it by making gases like carbon dioxide. Different types of bacteria can make food go bad, and some can even make you sick. But it’s important to remember that not all fat packaging is dangerous. You should still be careful with it, and if you’re not sure if the product is safe, you should follow food safety rules.
