The presence of oxygen causes deterioration of oxygen-sensitive foodstuffs. This leads to a deterioration of quality characteristics like colour, freshness and organoleptic properties. Due to the strong influence of temperature and exposure to light (photo-induced oxidation processes) this effect especially appears in transparent packaged chilled p...
