What Do Oxygen Absorbers Do?

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 of storage foods.
  • Prevents growth of aerobic pathogens and spoilage organisms, including molds.
  • Eliminates the need for additives such as BHA, BHT, sulfur dioxide, sorbates, benzoates, etc.
  • Use with gas flushing / vacuum packaging to absorb virtually all oxygen and absorb any oxygen that may permeate the package.

Benefits:

  • Significantly improves keeping qualities of polyunsaturated fats and oils
  • Helps retain fresh-roasted flavor of coffee and nuts
  • Prevents oxidation of spice oleoresins present in spices themselves and in seasoned foods
  • Prevents oxidation of vitamins A, C and E
  • Extends life of pharmaceuticals
  • Inhibits mold in natural cheeses and other fermented dairy products
  • Delays non-enzymatic browning of fruits and some vegetables
  • Inhibits oxidation and condensation of red pigment of most berries and sauces

Typical Applications:

  • Whole fat dry foods

What Type Do I Need?

There are several different formulations depending on whether food is frozen, refrigerated or destined for long-term storage.

The absorbers on this site are all suitable for long-term storage

The most critical component for evaluation is the water activity level (AW). All dry grain, legumes, milk powder, pasta products and other dehydrated foods have very low water activity levels. Thus, they require absorbers which have rapid activation. These work within minutes of the package being opened.

 

*For most effectiveness, only open the package when you are ready to immediately place the oxygen absorbers in your food storage containers.
