Oxygen scavenge have revolutionized the way that dehydrated food is stored long-term. The presence of oxygen decreases the storage life of food and causes oxidative deterioration. Oxygen absorbers are small packets that contain an iron powder. 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 food-safe pouch.
