Oxygen Absorbers can help extend the shelf-life of your products.
Oxidization is one of the leading causes of food spoilage, by removing the oxygen you can prevent this occurring.

Preserve Nutrients
Oxygen accelerates the processes that break down vitamins. By lowering the level of oxygen the shelf life of the vitamins is lengthened.

Delay Rancidity
Oxygen exposure increases the rate that lipids go rancid. Oxygen absorbers can achieve a level of 0.1% oxygen, thus preventing this reaction occurring.

Suppress Mould and Kill Insects
Oxygen absorbers can reduce oxygen to levels low enough to kill insects and prevent the growth of moulds.


CO2 Generating Sachets

In some instances the reduction of package volume is not desirable and sachets that release carbon dioxide as they absorb oxygen are available. This balances the air pressure within the package and can help to prevent further ingress of oxygen.

Non-Iron Based Sachets

Also in rare occasions where the iron based sachet is not suitable non-iron based sachet is available. However these sachets are larger and more expensive relative to the standard iron based product.
