With the continuous rise in food costs, people are beginning to look at ways to stretch the value of a dollar, and one of those ways is to buy in bulk. The concept of food prepping or long-term food storage has been a routine task for many people, whether they are preparing for a long winter or just looking to save money.
The key to storing food for an extended period of time is to eliminate oxygen from the package that is being used. Oxygen absorbers are a perfect solution for this issue since they can easily be placed inside a sealed bag, jar or even a barrel to quickly absorb any excess oxygen that may be present.
When preserving food, it is important to protect your food's nutritional value and shelf life, as well as the intended taste, regardless if you are looking for effective long-term food storage or additional protection while your product is in transit or ready for purchase. Utilizing oxygen absorbers will prevent the growth and proliferation of bacteria, mold and mildew. Oxygen absorbers are non-toxic and safe to use in direct contact with food.
Used by the United States Military, Meals Ready to Eat (MREs), are pre-packaged meals that require no cooking and offer a long shelf life (up to 3 years in most cases). MREs are also utilized as emergency and survival food sources for non-military applications. Oxygen absorbers are placed inside the MREs to absorb excessive moisture while they are sealed inside a Mylar bag. The combination of a Mylar bag and Oxygen absorber can add years to a products shelf life.
Oxygen absorbers are also used in the storage of dry pet food, such as bird seeds. They are used in a similar manner as mentioned before, in that the oxygen absorber is placed in a sealed environment to extend the pet food's shelf life. A new trend in the dog food industry, are homemade or organic dog treats, and with such products oxygen absorbers are placed within the packaging to preserve the treats freshness, flavor and longevity.
Oxygen absorbers can also be used for art and artifact preservation. Museums can place these small yet effective oxygen absorber packets inside glass display cases to prevent any damage to delicate and valuable artifacts and paintings. Even items that are hundreds of years old can benefit from the use of oxygen absorbers, thereby preserving the longevity and history behind these artifacts.
