Title (EN) TOBACCO PACKAGING HAVING A CONTROLLED INTERNAL ENVIRONMENT
(FR) EMBALLAGE DE TABAC AYANT UN ENVIRONNEMENT INTERNE CONTRÔLÉ
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides a packaging system comprising a sealed or re-sealable package containing a tobacco product, wherein the internal environment within the package is actively controlled to maintain a predetermined gaseous composition. Maintaining the oxygen level below atmospheric levels slows undesirable changes to the product resulting from oxidative processes. The sealed or re-sealable package prevents unwanted loss of moisture content and flavour of the tobacco product, whilst maintaining the oxygen concentration in the package above zero prevents the rapid deterioration in the sensory quality of the tobacco product associated with a zero oxygen environment, thereby extending the shelf-life of the product.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un système d'emballage, lequel système comprend un emballage pouvant être hermétiquement scellé ou hermétiquement rescellé contenant un produit de tabac, l'environnement interne à l'intérieur de l'emballage étant activement contrôlé de façon à maintenir une composition gazeuse prédéterminée. Le maintien du niveau d'oxygène en dessous de niveaux atmosphériques ralentit des changements indésirables du produit, résultant de processus d'oxydation. L'emballage pouvant être hermétiquement scellé ou pouvant être hermétiquement rescellé empêche une perte indésirable de teneur en humidité et de saveur du produit de tabac, tandis que le maintien de la concentration d'oxygène dans l'emballage au-dessus de zéro empêche la détérioration rapide de la qualité sensorielle du produit de tabac associée à un environnement à oxygène nul, de façon à prolonger ainsi la durée de vie en magasin du produit.
