01 Application

The desiccants are used to help preserve the quality of food products, extend their shelf life and prevent moulding. They also help prevent moisture absorption by products that must remain crunchy, such as cookies, crackers and toast. Let’s not forget about the animal feed sector, either: pets love crunchy kibble as well.

The shelf life of bread is extended sixfold
Bakeries used our oxygen absorbers on a roll. They have an adhesive on one side, with which they can be placed on the inside of the packaging underneath the printing. Although consumers cannot see them, they work perfectly just the same. Within an hour, the oxygen level inside the packaging will drop to 0.05%, extending the product’s shelf life from five to thirty days.

Desiccants in the food industry require tailor-made solutions
There is always a perfect solution for use in the food industry. No two solutions are the same, however. For example, we have to calculate how much moisture the desiccant must absorb – without affecting the quality of the product itself, of course, because no one wants dried-out food. That is why we offer desiccants with various capacities, ranging from 35 to 2,000 millilitres.

Do you need tailor-made advice? We are happy to think along with you. Of course, we will also send you some samples to try out for yourself
