Oxygen Absorbers are used to remove oxygen from within a sealed environment, creating a nitrogen environment for long-term food storage. They protect dry foods from insect damage and help preserve product quality. They are used when dry foods are packaged in sealed containers. When used with proper packaging and sealing, the oxygen in the packaging is greatly reduced. Our absorbers bring the oxygen level down reliably to .01% or less.
What Are The Benefits Of Using Them?
Extends shelf life
Prevents growth of aerobic pathogens and spoilage organisms, including molds
Eliminates the need for additives such as BHA, BHT, sulfur dioxide, sorbates, benzoates, etc
How Do Oxygen Absorbers Work?
Oxygen absorbers perform their action through a chemical reaction. They contain iron powder which reacts with the oxygen in the air causing the iron powder to rust. When all the iron powder has oxidized, the oxygen absorbers are "loaded" and the absorbing action stops. Remove the oxygen from an active absorber and the chemical reaction stops. Put them back in the air and the reaction starts again until the iron is gone.
What Are Oxygen Absorbers Made Of?
Oxygen absorbers are small packets that contain an iron powder.
Are They Dangerous to Come in Contact with Food?
The packets are made of a material that allows oxygen and moisture to enter but does not allow the iron powder to leak out. The Oxygen Absorbers are safe to place on top of the food. They will not harm the food they are in contact with as they come in a sealed pouch.
How Long Does it Take For the Oxygen Absorbers to Work? Oxygen Absorbers become warm to the touch when they are working.
