300cc Oxygen Absorbers
Designed primarily to prolong the shelf life of food, oxygen absorbers prevent the change of color in food products, stop oils in foods from becoming rancid, and prevent the growth of oxygen-using aerobic microorganisms such as fungi.
The type of packaging and the food bag /container seal are crucial for the effectiveness of the oxygen absorber. A minor packaging fault or leak can render the oxygen absorber useless and the contents inside the package will perish. Thus, a high barrier package (with a low oxygen transmission rate), such as our Mylar bags, and efficient seal techniques need to be employed.
Use 1 or 2 300cc O2 absorbers per 1gal mylar bag depending on your food items being stored. For items such as fine flour, coffee grounds, grains, 1 300cc absorber is sufficient. For larger food items such as pastas, or noodles, use 2 300cc absorbers.
Our 300cc O2 absorbers are sold in packs of 50.
