Use one for a #10 can or equivalent size. You can also use a number of these in a larger container, depending on residual air volume.
Oxygen absorbers, or oxygen scavengers as they are also known, are designed primarily to prolong the shelf life and viability of products that are sensitive to oxidation, rot, colour loss and rancidity. By removing the oxygen in an atmosphere, we create an anaerobic environment whereby microorganisms cannot live and grow, and also preserve the flavour and colour of foods and products as well as preventing rancidity in products that have high oil content.
When used correctly, oxygen scavengers can reduce the oxygen level in an enclosed container to 0.01%, thereby giving your product the best possible environment to reside in.
