1 Bag of 50, 500cc Oxygen Absorbers
The four enemies of long-term food storage are moisture, air, light, and temperature (MALT). Using Oxygen Absorbers in conjunction with Mylar Bags is your best defense against these issues.
Oxygen absorbers (also known as oxygen eaters) are made of a powdered iron oxide chemical base. These absorbers are completely safe for use and while they are not edible, they are also not toxic, and no harmful gases are created. So while the Oxygen Absorber removes all of the air in the storage bag, it does not remove the fresh smell and taste of the food product it's protecting.
Simply put: Oxygen Absorbers are one of the best and most common ways to protect Your Long Term Food Storage.
Primary benefits of Oxygen Absorbers:
