Food Grade Desiccant Silica Gel Packs Details:
The food desiccant refers to a substance that can remove moisture in a moist substance. It is dried by combining with water to form a hydrate, and is dried by physically adsorbing water. The control of moisture is closely related to the yield of the product. In the case of food, under the proper temperature and humidity, the bacteria and mold in the food will multiply at an alarming rate, causing the food to spoil, causing moisture and color change. Electronic products can also cause oxidation of metals due to excessive humidity, which can cause defects. The use of food desiccants is to avoid the occurrence of undesirable products caused by excess water.
For long-term food storage, keeping the dry environment is key, but all plastics deliver moisture. Silica gel desiccant removes excess moisture to control humidity and keep the fragrance, sugar, salt or other ingredients dry.
