What is the deoxidizer

- Oct 23, 2017-

It is literally understood that deoxidizers are products that absorb oxygen and slow the oxidation of food. We know that general item spoilage is caused by oxidation, so it is possible to prevent the item from spoiling by controlling the amount of oxygen. Usually used in food, because many foods are water-containing, if you use a desiccant, it will affect the original taste of the food. If the drying dose is small, the water evaporated from the food can not be absorbed. Therefore, a deoxidizer can be used, and the deoxidizer can be given. Food creates an environment that allows moisture without rot (oxidation).

Deoxidizer, also known as deacidification agent and oxygen absorber, is a product that absorbs oxygen in a packaging container to make the container anaerobic. The deoxidizer can effectively inhibit the growth of mold and aerobic bacteria and prolong food. Shelf life can also play a very good role in preventing oil rancidity, preventing oxidative browning of meat and preventing loss of vitamins in food.


The main components of the deoxidizer are: reduced iron powder, activated carbon, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite, sodium chloride, and water.
