Slots in the inner film permit air within the package to pass into the oxygen scavenger sachet. In 1990, W. R. Grace and Company announced the European commercialization of their Daraform® closure liner incorporating an unidentified oxy- ©2001 CRC Press LLC 02_Tecnomic_Brody_183011 5/9/01 10:03 PM Page 23 gen scavenger, which was assumed to be ascorbic acid. In 1991, Grace began marketing this liner in the United States for beverage packaging applications. Almost simultaneously, what was then the Cryovac Division of W.

During the late 1980s, oxygen scavenger sachets were introduced first into packages of water activity–controlled, shelf-stable pouch bread to provide protection against mold growth. In the absence of the oxygen scavenger sachet, growth of Aspergillus and Penicillium was visible on the bread within 14 days (Powers and Berkowitz, 1990). With oxygen scavengers, up to three years’ shelf life at 27°C (80°F) can be achieved while preserving flavor, texture, and nutritional value. With shelf stability being augmented through modified-atmosphere packaging, introduction of the pouch bread has resulted in a variety of shelf-stable baked goods for the military that are incorporated into field rations.

Japan’s Keplon marketed their reduced iron–based oxygen scavenger sachet products in the United States for three years through two different agents. Japan’s Toppan Printing has sold their ascorbic acid–based oxygen scavenger sachets in the United States. An American company, United Desiccants Gates (now Sud-Chemie), marketed Japan’s Nippon Soda’s iron-based oxygen scavenger products under the OxySorb name. These thrusts reflect a distinctly Japanese base to much of the oxygen scavenger commercialization to date.
