What Are Oxygen Absorbers?

Oxygen absorbers are a simple yet effective way of packaging food and non-food items in a safe effective format for long-term storage. They will reduce oxygen in a container to less than 0.01% which will increase the shelf life of the packaged product as oxygen is required by most forms of bacteria, mold, and mildew to grow. By eliminating the oxygen inside of a container, almost any type of product will have a longer shelf-life. Specifically used in the meat and food industry to extend the shelf-life of jerky, meat snacks, snack sticks, dehydrated fruits, and much more.

How To Use Oxygen Absorbers?

  1. Open the oxygen absorber package
  2. Place oxygen absorbers in other containers, like a package of jerky, and immediately seal air tight
  3. Immediately vacuum seal the remaining and unused oxygen absorbers for later use (never leave open to air for longer than 30 minutes)

Why Use Oxygen Absorbers in Food Packaging?

Oxygen absorbers will promote an extended shelf-life and prevent some spoilage of food products by preventing bacteria, mold, and mildew from growing. They also assist in maintaining freshness and flavor of food items. Also used to inhibit and prevent oxidation of food items and can help delay the browning in some fruits/veggies.
