Honeyville's Oxygen Absorbers are designed to extend the shelf life and freshness of properly canned and air-tight sealed items. They are used in the food service industry to preserve foods such as: beef jerky, nuts, grains, flours and dried foods. Simply place the little packets in a container with your items and quickly make an air tight seal as they will begin working instantly.
You should plan to use your oxygen absorbers within 6 months of purchase as they will start to lose their strength after that time. Once the package of oxygen absorbing packets is opened, they will start working within 20 minutes of being exposed to oxygen. If left exposed to air, the oxygen absorbers will be rendered completely useless in as little as 5 hours. Plan ahead and use all of the absorbers or seal the remaining packets in an airtight glass mason jar. The 500CC Oxygen Absorbers work for about 75 #10-sized cans or 37 of the 5 gallon buckets filled with beans, rice, flours, grains or whatever you choose.
