Units Required

Oxygen Absorber Calculation

Main ingredients (iron based)

Iron powder, active carbon powder, salt, diatomite granule and water.

Oil proof packaging material: PET/EVA/PAPER/PE


The oxygen absorbers should be used as soon as possible once opened the package and cannot be exposed in the air for more than 60 minutes. Otherwise the sachets will lose the absorbing capacity before usage.


Oxygen Absorption Required for the Long Term Food Storage of Common Foods
To ensure adequate oxygen absorption for the long term preservation of food we recommend Mylar Bags should be filled completely & food packed tightly. There is no risk when using more oxygen absorbers than necessary. If you are unsure of the quantity of oxygen absorbers needed, always opt for the higher quantity. Note: Some foodstuffs such as flour and powdered mixes, consist of very fine particles, that contain a surprising amount of air. Be aware that 300cc oxygen absorption quantity per 3.8 litres isn’t enough for food types like pasta.

    I wish that the oxygen absorbers could be sold in packs of 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 as I’m not sure how to split them all up and store them so they don’t go off, but was very happy with my order and communication when I got in touch to see where my order was in transit.

      Thank you so much guys! I have bought a vacuum sealer so I’m hoping to split the entire lot up and vacuum seal them all into lots of 5 🙂 I’ll definitely be back to purchase again with you, I’ve been extremely happy with the customer service, thank you so much 🙂

      Hi Louise,

      Thank you for your review, in order to preserve the oxygen absorbers after opening the packet reseal them in a zip lock bag ensuring to remove all oxygen from the bag.
