Is nitrogen an antioxidant?If yes then why?

Dear student!

It is true that nitrogen acts as an antioxidant and prevents rancidity and it is because, it is almost inert in nature at room temperature and a huge energy is required to break the triple bond between the dinitrogen (N2) molecule, so it does not act with oxygen and prevents rancidity in food products.
