What are Oxygen Absorbers?

By Delta Adsorbents on 1/1/2019

Oxygen can promote the growth of bacteria and fungi that can cause food to spoil.   Consuming food with bacteria can be harmful.   Oxygen Absorbers can prevent the growth of pathogens and extend the shelf life of food.  Oxygen Absorbers are non-toxic and inexpensive compared to the cost associated with throwing out contaminated food.    

When looking for solutions to remove oxygen from containers, there are many options to consider.  Vacuum pack can remove air from packaging but it can be expensive and it can also damage or misshape the product in the packaging. Oxygen absorbers are small and can reduce oxygen levels to less than 0.01%.  Oxygen absorbers do not change the taste or quality of the food and are used in applications with food, pharmaceutical and medical diagnostic.
