Stream Peak’s Oxygen Absorber or Scavenger, also known as O Sorb, is a food safe, non-toxic and odourless sachet used to prolong the shelf-life of food produces. O Sorb can absorb oxygen and effectively reduces the aerobic environment to 0% oxygen. They are used in the packet packaging to maintain flavour and colour, stop the oils in food from becoming rancid, and retard the growth of oxygen-using aerobic micro-organisms, such as fungi. The O Sorb also comes with an indicator that changes colour to indicate exposure to oxygen, allowing you to take additional precautionary measures if necessary.
O Sorb is a great alternative to artificial additives and preservatives which are often used to protect food and beverages against spoilages. Unlike the artificial ingredients, Oxygen Scavengers are natural protectors that can reduce or completely substitute the use of unhealthy preservatives for a healthier consumer product.
Our 4-layer O Sorb packet is recommended to be packed in contact with food, along with Stream Peak’s food packaging film. Stream Peak supplies Iron-free O Sorb sachets as well!
