Default Re Oxygen absorbers from the LDS church

Advertise Here

I have found two different places that list the absorbing power of these packets from the LDS church. One place said they were 300 cc and another place said they were 1500cc. Mine say 1500 cc on the package so I assume this means they are the larger volume ones even though they are smaller in size than some 300 cc ones I had ordered elsewhere. I am going to do a bunch of buckets when the kids are home this weekend - many hands will make the project easier and it gives them some input into the food storage. I want to make sure I am using these correctly?
I plan to put two in every mylar bag in a six gallon bucket and three in my pasta buckets? I know that is over kill but I will have a 100 to use so I might as well use them up. Thanks

We recently filmed a short tutorial about how to use mylar bags and oxygen absorbers. You can watch it here.

If I recall correctly, the LDS folks use the 300cc exclusively. Never heard of them using the big absorbers or bags, just the one gallon and the 300's.
Also never heard of a small footprint absorber package. Chemistry of the absorber itself would dictate that more capacity would require more material...bigger O2 packet.
Too many red flags to risk putting up that much LTS until you're sure of your packets true abilities.
