    Desiccare's Oxygen Absorbers - The solution for Product Longevity

    Oxygen is essential to life for every living thing on our planet, however in certain situations; it can do more harm than good. When oxygen will cause food, metal or other items to deteriorate, oxygen absorbers provide a valuable solution. Oxygen absorbers help to prevent the growth and proliferation of bacteria, mold and mildew. Desiccare's O-Buster® (oxygen absorbing packets and strips) are designed to eliminate oxygen from inside packaged environments. O-Buster® blend of absorbents will be anywhere from 15cc to 1000cc of oxygen, thereby safeguarding products from undesirable effects such as color and/or taste change. O-Buster® reduce the need for additives, gas flushing and vacuum packing which creates a tremendous cost savings to our customers that can be passed along to their own customers or the end user. Oxygen absorbers are typically comprised of specific powdered irons, which is the active ingredient responsible for the oxidation process. Because these desiccants do not release any harmful gases or toxic elements, they are safe to use in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
