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.

Now I can dehydrate food & it won't get soggy as time goes by. Most of the food I plan on dehydrating will be stored in vacuum sealed bags but the food for immediate use will be stored in Mason jars with O2 absorbers and canning lids & rings. By using the canning lids you can tell if the O2 absorbers are actually working because the bubble in the canning lid flattens & seals the jar. You don't have to seal the jar with the vacuum /sealer. It really works!
I noticed many people said their absorbers were junk after opening them. Just make sure to put them into a vacuum sealed bag or jar & they should be fine. Don't leave them loose, exposed to the air. After I opened the bag I removed what I needed & vacuum sealed the rest of the packs. I noticed that the pink indicator turned violet in the few seconds it took to remove 3 packs and seal the remainding packs. Not to worry, the indicator turned pink again after vacuum sealing. I know the packets are still good because several days later I removed a few more O2 absorbers. Again, the indicator turned violet in 5 seconds of air exposure but returned to pink after vacuum sealing. I guess when they no longer seal a Mason jar lid to the jar, then I'll know they aren't good anymore.
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.
I put them in the rat bucket and a day later, when the food arrived in the mail, I opened it to find it soaked with water! I'm new to dessicants but I did not know they pulled water from air. It was weird. I threw them out because they were soaked as well and I didn't want to risk 40lbs of food going bad.
Overall, they work great. Just make sure your bucket has food I it
Just make sure you seal the ones you don't use. Otherwise, you'll find that they start absorbing immediately, and with a bag full, you'll get a nice chemical reaction that'll heat up the absorbers rather quickly.
Once the bag is open it starts the oxygen absorbsion process, and the little indicator disc changes colors and the whole bag heats up as it reacts with the oxygen. (the process stopped once I re-vacuum-sealed the bag)
So be advised, have your work ready before you open the bag.
Take what you need out, re-vacuum-seal the bag, and then use the product you removed quickly.
You may want to consider getting a vacuum canister to store them in. That way you can open and close at will.
