The CO2 gas can be directly injected into the product headspace during packaging. More commonly, it is introduced in a controlled mixture of gases that are used to backflush a headspace after vacuum treatment. Gas mixtures containing 2–5% O2 , 8–10% CO2 , and the remainder being N2 are commonly used to extend the shelf life of fresh fruits and vegetables (Farkas, 2007; Jay, 2000). As with most other preservative factors, there is an interaction between the temperature and the effective concentration of CO2 to prevent spoilage.
