Feb. 25, 2019

We've received a small number of questions concerning Oxygen Absorber and desiccants. We know there might be a Small confusion between the two but the most important thing to consider is: Oxygen absorbers absorb oxygen, Desiccant absorber moisture.

Oxygen Absorber

We won’t go too much into oxygen absorbers, as we have already written about them in the past, but the main point of oxygen absorber packets is that they absorb oxygen, not air or moisture.

Activated Carbon Desiccants are used to absorb moisture. Moisture can build inside your storage container through temperature shifts, condensation from the humidity in the air during the initial fill-up of your container, or from the moisture contained in the food itself. Moisture can cause damage to stored products both directly and by supporting growth of mold and other organisms. Mineral Desiccant buffer the moisture level and helps preserve many things like food products, clothes, firearms, electronics, and anything else that could become damaged.
