Quality Oxygen Absorbers - 50cc usually used with our 12x20cm mylar bag to offer a long term storage solution. Factory sealed packs with OxyEye. Foodgrade. More Information
Oxygen absorbers remove oxygen from the air, when one of these 50cc oxygen absorbers is placed inside one of our foil bags and sealed, the oxygen within the bag is removed. The capacity of oxygen removal of these oxygen absorbers matches 12x20cm Mylar bag we sell, although this 50cc capacity is also ok in a smaller bag than this or slightly larger.
All packs are factory sealed in a master vacuum bag of 250pcs (you received multiple packs for larger orders) along with an OxyEye colour indicator to guarantee freshness. This brand of oxgyen absorbers are used in the M&S beef jerky packs, thy are food grade & safe to be in contact with food and of a great quality. Each pack comes factory sealed in master vacuum bag with OxyEye included (see FAQ below) for your peace of mind, to ensure freshess.
Actual size of the 50cc oxygen absorber is: 3.5cm x 4.3cm
After opening the pack and using what you need straight away, the remainder should be kept in a airtight mason jar, vacuum sealed or heat sealed in the bag they came in. This allows you to store the remaining oxygen absorber sachets without having to worry about them being exposed to the oxygen in the air once you have opened the vacuum sealed pack.
Our oxygen absorbers are of the highest quality available, t hey are not the cheaper paper variety that are widely available, they are made of Tyvek type plastic which comprises of flashspun high density polyethylene fibres. This higher quality oxygen absorber offers much greater protection, for example if the product you are sealing has any fat content the plastic does not degrade and allow transfer through, unlike the paper encased equivalent. (Although it is not recommended using Foil bags with products that have high fat/moisture levels.)
Oxygen Absorbers remove oxygen from the Mylar bags to below 0.01%. They work by when exposed to air, the iron in the sachet quickly starts to absorb the oxygen and breaks it down into harmless iron-oxide which is safely contained in the packet and does not contaminate the food. Each of these 50cc oxygen absorber is designed to treat up to 0.6kg void of product and are well over specified for their application.
It is normal for a partial vacuum to be created within 24 hours of the oxygen absorbers being sealed within the Mylar bag, as the 20% oxygen in the air inside the Mylar bag is removed.
A. An OxyEye is a colour changing sachet packed inside the master vacuum sealed bag along with the oxygen absorbers, the OxyEye is pink when the oxygen absorbers have not been exposed to air (oxygen) and are ready to use. The OxyEye turns blue/purple if the master vacuum sealed bag has been damaged and air (oxygen) has then already used up the oxygen absorbers capacity. So in summary the OxyEye is a good indicator of the oxygen absorbers freshness.
Good news! All our oxygen absorbers contain an OxyEye for your peace of mind.
