What is an Oxygen Absorber?

An oxygen absorber is a small sachet used to keep products safe from things like mold and extend shelf life by taking the oxygen out of a sealed package. These oxygen absorbers can be found in many different types of things from pharmaceuticals to industrial metals, but probably the most common use for them is with food. Also known as an oxygen scavenger, these sachets are tools that help to keep products fresh without all the unhealthy preservatives.

“But there are a lot of foods I eat that don’t have oxygen absorbers in them that don’t ever seem to spoil.” This is because there are many foods in the market today that use preservatives to extend shelf life as long as possible.
