Food and Consumer Goods

Food items and consumer goods that suffer from spoilage, microorganism growth, change in colour, reduced nutrition, rancidity, lowered quality due to oxygen in the packaging. Using Modified Atmospheric Packaging techniques like gas flushing and vacuum, oxygen gas is removed for packaging prior to hermetic sealing. However, these methods are not successful in removing residual oxygen levels or to achieved the desired (Below 0.5% oxygen level) in packaging. Another problem with these methods is the oxygen gas from outside environment seeps into the packaging due to poor Oxygen barrier in poly-based packaging material. This is known as Oxygen Transmission. Modified Atmospheric Packaging techniques do not resolve this problem complete.

oxygen scavenger sachet or packets have been designed as a single solution to oxygen gas problems from packaging. O2ZeroTM oxygen scavenger sachet or packets permanently absorb oxygen from void space of packaging upto 0.01%. Even under harsh conditions O2ZeroTM oxygen scavenger sachet or packet effectively reduce oxygen to increase the shelf-life of food products. Food Products that are sensitive to oxygen can be protected using O2ZeroTM.
