Oxygen Absorbers are Food grade desiccants, which absorbs Oxygen which is the main cause of Food products getting rotten.
Food products get Oxidized which causes them to get spoiled, Oxygen absorber kept along with the Food products protects them against the Oxidation process which eliminates the Food products to get spoiled and increases their shelf life.
The oxygen absorber can be bifurcated in two kinds:
1) Iron series self-reaction: - Utilizes the chemical reaction of iron and oxygen. It will absorb the oxygen in the food package in order to lengthen the food’s preserving period.
2) Organic series self-reaction:- The main composition which is an organic material, which makes the airtight container under an oxygen-free condition so that the oxygen will not affect the food.
It keeps the foods from oxidation, mildew, and rust by absorbing the oxygen in the container. It is suitable not only for fried foods but also for various kinds of foods with low or high moisture content.
