Oxygen scavengers or oxygen absorbers are added to sealed packaging, to help remove or decrease the level of oxygen in the package. They are used to help maintain product safety and extend shelf life. There are many types of oxygen absorbers available to cover a wide array of applications.
Oxygen Absorbents can broaden shelf life of meats, baked & cooked items, nuts, pharmaceutical products, and different sustenance by absorbing oxygen present inside the compartments in which the items are stored.
This oxygen-free atmosphere can preserve food removing the effects of oxygen. Both the flavor and freshness of food is held, extending the life thereof.
