The Oxygen Scavenger Sachet – Osorb is an Oxygen Absorber made from a safe, non-toxic material that can help prolong the shelf life of food products. It is commonly known as Oxygen Scavengers or Oxygen Absorbents. The Osorb is manufactured from Japanese technology and materials. The four-layer laminated packing allows active oxygen absorption, preventing its active powder from directly contacting food.
Oxygen Absorbers within sealed packaging will create an oxygen-free condition of up to 0.1% or less. The Osorb prevents changes in the colour of food, prevents oils in goods from becoming rancid and limits the growth of oxygen-aerobic microorganisms such as fungi. Oxygen Absorbers can increase the shelf life of a food product from days to months, retaining flavours, aroma, and food quality. It eliminates conventional packaging methods, such as vacuum packaging and gas flushing.
Oxygen Absorbers are commonly used in food packagings such as bakery products, dehydrated food and nuts, pet food, jerky, and processed meat. It helps to reduce the aerobic environment to minimal oxygen levels and limit bacteria growth.
The number of packets to use would depend on the oxygen volume of the void space in the packaging. By volume, the oxygen in the air is about 20%. Therefore if the void space is 100ml with 20ml of oxygen, we recommend a packet of U-20.
1) Check oxygen indicators in the packaging to ensure it is pink. Only use it if the indicator is blue.
2) Use it immediately after opening the packaging where the oxygen absorber is packed.
3) Highly not recommended to reuse an old oxygen absorber packet.
4) Use together with a high-gas food packaging film for optimal protection.
