Oxygen Absorber Packets Increase the Shelf Life of Rich Dry Fruits

Dry fruits like cashew, almonds, walnuts, pistachios, and nuts are in more demand during festive seasons. These dry fruits and nuts are the most abundant in vitamins, minerals, fibres and proteins. Therefore, they can even cure health issues like chronic diseases, high blood pressure, and many more.

We all know how important and effective dry fruits and nuts are for our bodies. But what happens when they lose their shelf-life, taste, and nutritional value, due to improper packaging? Improper packaging can lead to rancidity, mildew, mold, change in taste and structure, and losing the longevity of dry fruits and nuts. A solution for prevention against improper packaging can be the oxygen absorber- “OxySorb,” the perfect desiccant for preventing food spoilage.

An oxygen absorber for dried fruits and nuts is essential during packaging to absorb the unwanted oxygen from the packaging. This safeguards the dried fruits from mold, mildew, fungus and rancidity. Especially in the case of nuts, they are one of the greatest sources of oil and get rancid faster with unwanted bacteria and fungi. This even affects the shelf-life of nuts. An oxygen absorber in nuts can be a better choice for preserving the nuts and their nutritional value.

On the other hand, cashews also need effective packaging. Oxygen absorbers for cashew packaging get rid of mold, mildew and fungus. After the absorption process by the desiccant, the cashews remain fresh and get an extended shelf-life. Thus, during festive seasons, do not forget to insert the oxygen absorber packets in dried fruits and nuts.

Way of Food Packaging for Long Term with Oxygen Absorbers

  • Mason jars: Commonly used to preserve food, especially nuts, due to vacuum seal properties. However, on testing the quality of the nuts or checking how it looks, the lid traps unwanted bacteria, increasing the risk of damaging the nuts' shelf life. But while testing the quality, if you grab an oxygen absorber & put it inside & the risk reduces by up to 99.9%.
  • Re-usable pouches: With the opening and closing of zipping, oxygen starts entering & reducing the content of natural vitamins and nutrients in it. Adding an Oxygen Absorbers sachet, the natural nutrients & vitamins remain intact.
  • Dispenser: It is a type of container with a tap-shaped space for all the temptations of munching nuts you have. By just opening the tap, you are all set. When you open the tap, the oxygen gets leaked & Oxygen Absorbers help you convert the oxygen into nitrogen, thus keeping the natural nutrients intact.
  • Airtight plastic container: This type of container is mostly used to store nuts. They are very sturdy, durable, and much tighter. When you introduce the oxygen absorber, it prevents the food and absorbs the moisture and air. It is kept sealed & away from edible food without having a second thought about the food getting contaminated.
