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.  This may sound like a good thing, but it’s actually very bad for your body.  By using oxygen absorbers, companies can reduce the amount of preservatives they are using to provide fresh and organic goods to their consumers. 

“Something that is manufactured to absorb oxygen can’t be safe to come in contact with food!”  On the contrary, the safety of our oxygen absorbers have been fully FDA approved and are perfectly safe to come in contact with any variety of foods and pharmaceuticals.  Their primary function is to enhance the shelf life of products and prevent the negative effects of oxidation...
