UltrazapXtendaPak Seafood

The Natural Way to Extend Freshness

UltraZapXtendaPak Seafood is a revolutionary active absorbent that promotes food safety and improves the appearance and marketability of seafood.

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

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

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

Realize Immediate Benefits with UltraZapXtendaPak Seafood

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

  • Extends product shelf life
  • Seafood will have less purge and stay fresher longer
  • Seafood is fresher at the sell-by date
  • Reduces surface bacteria and offensive odors
  • Provides incremental food safety intervention in the cold chain cycle
  • Drastically reduces product out-of-stocks, leading to more sales
  • Reduces the risk of in-store cross contamination and related liability
  • Protects processor's brand equity
  • Active ingredients are GRAS, comply with USDA regulations, and require no additional labeling modifications

UltrazapXtendaPak Seafood

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

Freshness You Can See, Smell and Feel

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

Moisture from the seafood is absorbed by the UltraZapXtendaPak Seafood 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 seafood creating an envelope that helps retard the growth of spoilage bacteria present on the surface of the seafood. 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 Seafood active absorbent includes the features that the leading seafood 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
