Benefit of using AGELESS

What is AGELESS?

The main constituent of AGELESS (iron type) *1 is a specially treated iron powder. When iron rusts, it absorbs oxygen in the process. The result is deoxygenation of the sealed container *2 through oxidation, preventing any bad affects to the product.

  • *1 Other types of AGELESS use other organic matter such as vitamin C as their main constituents.
  • *2 AGELESS is used to create a deoxygenated state within a sealed container. It cannot be used for any other purpose.

The AGELESS process (outline)

Oxygen makes up approximately 21% of the air in the atmosphere, however AGELESS absorbs all oxygen within a sealed container to create an oxygen free state (maintaining an oxygen concentration of 0.1% or less). As AGELESS absorbs more oxygen, the volume decreases and the gas remaining within the sealed container becomes mostly nitrogen, an inert gas.

The ingredients of air


Free-oxygen absorbing agent AGELESS for preserving good taste and freshness

  • AGELESS deoxidizes the interior of a sealed package in a way never before possible with conventional vacuum and gas replacement packaging. Even small amounts of oxygen, which infiltrate through the film surface are removed completely. AGELESS is a truly epochal taste and freshness preserving agent.

  • Oxidized oils and fats are a detriment to good health. They can be prevented by the deoxidization effect of AGELESS.
  • Reducing amount of food additive.
  • Various tests conducted by official organizations have confirmed the safety of AGELESS.
  • AGELESS has been awarded the ISO9001 Quality System Certification.

Simple and effective free-oxygen absorbing agent

  • Conventional packaging such as vacuum packing and gas flushing package packing require devoted facilities, but you can use AGELESS just by providing a sealing machine.
  • AGELESS can be inserted quickly and simply by using an automatic inserter.

AGELESS has made the ‘distribution revolution’ possible.
