Product Description

Oxygen absorbers are made of a chemical compound, the active ingredient of which is a powdered iron oxide. Our absorbers are completely safe. While they are not edible, they are not toxic. No harmful gases are created and the oxygen does not remove the fresh smell and taste of the product. When used with proper packaging and sealing, the oxygen in the packaging is greatly reduced. Our absorbers bring the oxygen level down reliably to.01% or less.

Product used to keep dehydrated vegetables fresh in canning jars and mylar bags.
Sandra Robles
The bag comes sealed with absorbers and an oxygen indicator tablet that shows a very distinctive "pink" eye.

Please don't pay any attention to these reviews. Go on the net and read about how they really work. There are some misconceptions here.

When you get them, open the bag and immediately put them in a canning jar or a jar with a TIGHT sealable lid. If you have a Foodsaver, suck the air our of the jar. Quickly put the lid on and tighten. Take out only what you are using RIGHT THEN.

Those things that come in shoes and pill bottles are not the same thing. A real O2 absorber is fantastic for food storage.

Well, I hate to say this, but you all know the point of an oxygen absorber. You also know that once they do their absorbing, that's pretty much it. They ship with cute little hot pink tablets that turn blue when exposed to oxygen. This is obviously so that you know whether or not they are ruined, and if the seal you thought you had is broken. NEW ones should get to you in a very redshifted state, but mine are a pleasant but unfortunate target pattern of violet, lavender, and dull grey-pink. In other words, both entire packages of 50, (total 100) are shot, and that's they way they came out of the box. The shipping box was undamaged, no nicks in the plastic vacuum bag, they're just plain ruined. This is like buying camera film that's already been exposed. I have to assume that they're kind of old, and over time sitting on a shelf somewhere thev're leaked. Either that or the people who first put them into the vacuum bags did it too slowly. You have to work fast with those things. I'm kinda screwed on this batch. Rats.

Lesson learned: if you order these things, maybe put in a note for the seller to look at the exposure tablets and only ship you red ones. Otherwise you might as well toss an old sock in- it will absorb just as much oxygen as these things will.

Bought a dehydrator for the first time had no clue how to use these packets. I opened the package, not knowing that you have to put it immediately back into an airtight container again. Went to google how to store dry foods on the internet - when I came back, the whole bag was warm! I panicked and thought I was going to burn the house down - or, that it might explode! I am not a chemist and have long forgotten anything I've ever learned from high school. Had to go back and google how to use these things! I wish the package had large warning labels, or IMPORTANT PLEASE READ instructions in the box - if it did, I didn't see it. I need bifocals and couldn't read whatever little prints are on the package. Now, am not too certain if they're still good or not. I used a few with some dry cereal and i heard the jars pop and seal. Am glad to learn about these handy little packs though, will find them most useful. Since my sweetie died I've had more time to think about things that I've taken for granted all our life. I guess we were out enjoying out lives too much and didn't realize this as an option. I'm looking forward to dehydrating oranges, bananas, fruits, vegetable chips, jerky, herbs and teas; of course for storing my sugar, flour, rice beans. Over all my 30+ married life, have thrown away so much food because never stored anything properly. Flour would sit on my shelf that I would use once or twice - then, it would taste horrible after several months of non-use, I end up throwing it all away. This should preserve the life of my dry foods much longer. A much appreciated product that I wish I'd of used years ago! Looking forward to canning and preserving more foods throughout the rest of my life.

I had ordered fifty "300cc" sachets from another link, then I found this link for one hundred 100cc sachets, for about the same price.

The photos were identical for both the 300cc and 100cc products, so I ordered both. When I received them, they were in fact both nearly indistinguishable in size and marking (see my other review of the "300cc" sachets, where I posted a photo).

I went to the OxyFree's website where they list the 100cc sachets in 100-count packages.

The sealed package from THIS seller of the 100cc sachets included a tag which indicated the 504A SKU number referenced on OxyFree's website, along with a QC number. This seemed to be evidence of a genuine product/description. Furthermore, the sealing of the plastic bag was uniform all the way around. The sachets measured about 35x55mm (somewhat inconsistent with the 40x50mm dimensions on the website).

On the other hand, the "300cc" sachets from the other vendor now start to look suspicious (see my other review for all of the reasons).

While the sachets I bought from this link did not include the freshness-indicating tablet mentioned by another reviewer, it appears that the 100-count bags were probably sealed by OxyFree, and I have more confidence in them than the others I bought.

I rated this product only 4 stars instead of 5 because I think the indicator tablet is a good idea, but it was absent. I don't have any actual test results to prove whether these work, so I'm going on faith. It at least appears that they are described and packaged properly.

The product itself seems to work but the way its packaged is not user friendly for smaller batches. If they were individually wrapped it would be much better.
