300cc Oxygen Absorber Pack
Oxygen Absorbers are Life Support for Jars, Bags, Bins, and Buckets
It's important to use oxygen absorbers when vacuum-sealing your fruit and vegetables, after
dehydrating and conditioning. The very page you're reading now is probably ONE of the most IMPORTANT pages on Easy Food Dehydrating. Why? Well, if you're interested in storing food for Long Term, you need to make sure to add oxygen absorbers inside your dehydrated vacuum-sealer bags PRIOR to sealing them with your FoodSaver machine or (whichever brand of vacuum-sealer you purchased).
Remember: tuck a 100cc oxygen absorber inside the vacuum bag just before
you vacuum seal it, or drop an oxygen absorber in the mason jar just before screwing on its
If you're using a small (half-pint) jar, use a 50cc oxygen absorber.

Pink Pill = Good
Blue/Purple Pill = Bad!
When the 100-pack of oxy-packs first
arrives, BEFORE OPENING IT
putting it away, I'll immediately
check for the little pill in the
It MUST BE PINK.
If it's BLUE/PURPLE ... that's not good.
PINK = GOOD

The pill turns BLUE/PURPLE when the pill has absorbed oxygen, therefore
telling you that the contents of the shipment are probably no-good. So
before you OPEN that shipped package, check for a pink pill. If it's blue/purple, return that shipment unopened for a replacement order!
Blue/Purple = NO GOOD
Photo shows the pills that have turned from a very definite PINK to an almost blueish purple color.
This indicates that the oxygen absorbers contained in the bag are highly-likely "no good."
Blue/Purple Pill In The Packet = NO GOOD
5 Bags Each With 20 Oxy-packs Inside
If the pill is good, I'll open the new 100-pack bag, and take out 5
quart-size vacuum-sealer bags. Place 20 oxy-packs from the 100-pack bag
into each of the quart-size vacuum-sealer bags, and immediately vacuum seal
So I now have five quart-size bags with 20 oxy-packs in each
of them. The pink pill from the original bag can go into
one of the five bags – no need to throw it away, we can use
The reason for doing this is because I don’t want to continually
open and seal the same bag to take out one or two oxy-packs, it would
soon ruin the other oxy-packs with air infiltration before we even get a
chance to use them!
Cut Just Below the Old Seal
When I'm ready to use an oxygen pack, I simply cut along the
bottom of the seal at the top of the bag, as shown here, by the white dashed line. Cut as straight as you can and as
close to the old seal as you can – then I remove as many packets as I
need and put them in the dehydrated food bags that are waiting to be

Reseal Opened Oxygen Absorber Bags
Immediately After Use
Then straight away, I'll re-vacuum and seal the oxy-pack bag
I can re-seal one of the oxy-pack bags about four times ...
and if I've any remaining packets and the bag gets 'too short' to
reseal, I'll put those remaining packets into a new bag and vacuum seal
