Description Extended Information
Ageless Oxygen Absorbers - Z500 - 100 Count

Oxygen is essential for humans. Oxygen is an active element which changes everything. By removing oxygen from the environment of the package, there will be no oxidation. It is quite simple, if there is no oxygen, there will be no oxidation or no mold growth.

Metallic Iron usually experiences rust due to the oxygen in air. Mitsubishi Gas Chemical found this simple and natural mechanism is good for Food preservation by creating an oxygen free environment. This discovery became a Mitsubishi Gas Chemical patent and Ageless was developed and commercialized in 1977. This was the first oxygen absorber and remains the World’s Top brand today. Mitsubishi Gas Chemical is proud that Ageless is the most reliable and highest quality oxygen absorber available today.

  • Z100 size is for pouches or containers quart to ½ gallon.

  • Take out the absorbers you are going to use (within 2-4 hours or less) – spread them out on a table or tray – reseal or pack the remaining absorbers in the master bag (if you have an impulse sealer or other appropriate sealer), or another high barrier film pouch (like a food saver), or container (without the proper pouch sealer, many people use an appropriate size canning jar with an air tight lid – packed tight) – DO NOT USE ZIP LOCK BAGS.
  • Use the absorbers you have within 6 months to 1 year.
  • Be aware of the gas barrier transmission rates of the containers you are using – metal and glass have a zero transmission rate for both vapor and gas. The type of material you use will determine how long it retains an oxygen free atmosphere. The seal must be air tight.
