An FDA-approved, all-organic oxygen-absorber masterbatch for LDPE and LLDPE food-packaging films reportedly provides better clarity than typical metal-based oxygen absorbers. It is targeted for packaging vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower and as a cap sealant for baby foods. Developmental S1045105450 masterbatch from Techmer PM, Clinton, Tenn., is said to limit oxygen transmission in LDPE film to less than 200 (cc/100 in.2/day) vs. 257 without the additive. Full commercial availability is expected by the end of the year.
