UltrazapXtendaPak Poultry

The Natural Way to Extend Freshness

UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry is a revolutionary active absorbent that promotes food safety and improves the appearance and marketability of packaged poultry.

UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry reduces bacterial growth, thus maintaining product appearance as the product ages inside the package.

The reduction of bacterial load by one log slows the natural decay process of packaged poultry, extends product shelf life, and reduces offensive odors.

UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry can be customized - the absorbent architecture and the active ingredients can be adjusted to maximize the effectiveness for your particular packaging application.

Realize Immediate Benefits with UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry

Poultry processors will realize immediate benefits by using the innovative UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry active absorbent:

  • Extends product shelf life
  • Reduces surface bacteria and offensive odors
  • Poultry will have less purge and stay fresher longer
  • Poultry is fresher at the sell-by date
  • Reduces processor shrink costs
  • Provides incremental food safety intervention in the cold chain cycle
  • Reduces the risk of in-store cross contamination and related liability
  • Extended shelf offers planning, production and logistics efficiencies
  • Protects processor's brand equity
  • Active ingredients are GRAS, comply with USDA regulations, and require no additional labeling modifications

UltrazapXtendaPak Poultry

Even in a non-barrier package, UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry active absorbent combines the generation of CO2 gas and an anti-microbial agent to produce a beneficial organoleptic effect - poultry maintains better color, smell and feel through the sell-by date.

Freshness You Can See, Smell and Feel

UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry active absorbent includes additives that produce carbon dioxide (CO2), an inert gas known to have bacteriostatic properties.

Moisture from the packaged poultry is absorbed by the UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry cellulose absorbent, which then produces a steady stream of CO2 gas inside the package. The unique structure of the absorbent pad allows for a systematic time-release of the active ingredients.

CO2 gas "wraps" itself around the protein creating an envelope that helps retard the growth of spoilage bacteria present on the surface of the poultry. Plus, a second anti-microbial ingredient reduces the bacteria growth inside the cellulose absorbent and in the purge.

An Innovative Active Absorbent

Patented and patents pending, the UltraZapXtendaPak Poultry absorbent includes the features that the leading poultry processors prefer:

  • Our patented UltraZap® pouch pad is sealed on all four sides and features a highly creped cellulose absorbent core that locks in moisture
  • UltraZap's layered cellulose effectively wicks purge inside the pad, unlike fluff pads that do not fully wick purge and tend to allow fluff particles to burst out
  • "Active" ingredients comply with government food packaging safety standards

"UltraZapXtendaPak has innovatively applied modern principles of active packaging to generate synergistic natural antimicrobial effects in pads that constitute an integral component of in-store packages to help retard adverse microbiological changes in fresh meat or poultry.

By incorporating the natural preservative effects of carbon dioxide into packaging, Paper Pak Industries is offering a remarkable breakthrough in fresh meat and poultry packaging for supermarket operators."
