Many products are susceptible to deterioration and/or oxidation when they are exposed to atmospheric oxygen. To prevent this oxidation, oxygen must be removed from the container or must not enter the container where the products are stored.

The invention relates to compositions for use in packaging products sensitive to oxygen.

• Use of non-toxic material

• Use of materials from food industry by-products

• Possibility to display the goods contained in the packaging

• Efficiency of the oxygen barrier
