If you have ever opened a bag of beef jerky, you might have noticed a white non-edible packet included inside the bag. This small white packet is most likely an oxygen absorber, which is being used in this situation to eliminate any excessive oxygen in the bag that could shorten the lift span of the beef jerky. These should not be confused with packets of desiccant, such as the little white packets bags of silica gel that read "DO NOT EAT" that you may find in a shoe box or new purse, as the desiccant packets are instead used to eliminate the moisture inside a sealed environment.
