Tobacco and Cigars

Tobacco and Cigars- Silica gel Desiccants For Preserving The Flavor, Texture, And Aroma

Desiccant materials are used during the packaging, storage, and transportation of tobacco and cigar products to prevent moisture from damaging the products. Moisture can cause the tobacco to become moldy as the texture and surface of the packaging can change with presence of moisture, which can ruin the flavor and aroma of the product. Desiccants are also used to prevent the growth of bacteria and other microorganisms that can thrive in moist environments.Silica gel is a common desiccant used in the tobacco industry, as it is effective at absorbing moisture, is non-toxic, and is safe to be used with consumables, and are suitable for ocean, truck, rail, and air shipping containers.

Tobacco and cigars are highly susceptible to even the slightest changes in moisture or humidity levels as they are mainly packaged in thin materials such as paper, wood, and other materials that can react with excess moisture levels in surrounding air, and turn soggy, lose their texture, and become unfit for use.

By using high quality, efficient, and sustainable desiccant materials, you can ensure that tobacco products and cigars are stored, packaged, and transported in their best form until they reach their destination without any damage. Cargo Dry Pak ensures optimal storage conditions and maintains product quality over extended periods of storage and transport as they can absorb over 300% of their weight in water and moisture inside the cargo container or shipping container.

Using cargo desiccants to safeguard tobacco and cigars

Efficient moisture control

Cigarettes and cigars are moisture-sensitive, and too much moisture can cause mold growth, spoilage, and flavor changes. Cargo dry packs control and absorb moisture within the packaging, preventing moisture issues during transport. Using Sorbipak container desiccants can help maintain optimum moisture levels during long periods of transport and storage and safeguard their quality and texture.

Preserve the flavor, texture, and aroma

While storing and transporting tobacco products and cigars across borders and long shipping hours, excess or varying humidity levels can lead to spoilage, and damage to the flavor, texture, and aroma of the products, as this is very common during long durations of storage inside the cargo and shipping containers. Using desiccants can help here as they are made of highly porous materials that can efficiently absorb large amounts of moisture and safeguard the products.

Prevent the growth of mold and mildew

Mold is one of the most common causes of damage to tobacco and cigars due to its ability to survive in humid conditions. The use of container desiccants reduces the amount of moisture in the air, which helps to prevent the growth of mold and protects the appearance and quality of the cigars and tobacco products. Desiccant packs help to maintain a stable environment by controlling the level of humidity, preventing the product from drying out and keeping your tobacco and cigars in their best form.

Prevent packaging damage and reduce shipping costs

Excess moisture and humidity levels inside the cargo and shipping containers can cause the packaging material to warp, tear, and even break down. By using container desiccant strips that can be hung inside the cargo container, desiccants help keep the packaging intact, protecting the products inside. Damage or spoilage of tobacco and cigars caused by moisture issues can result in returns and replacements, resulting in increased shipping costs, thus by reducing moisture related damage and losses, desiccants reduce these overall costs.

Protection against condensation and container rain

Condensation inside packaging can occur due to temperature variations during transit. A desiccant pack helps to absorb any moisture that may result from condensation. This helps to prevent moisture damage and preserves the integrity of your tobacco or cigar products. Silica gel desiccants are widely used and affordable option as they effectively absorb moisture and are non-toxic, making them suitable for consumable products such as tobacco products and cigars.

Since tobacco and cigars are generally premium products, it is essential to maintain consistent quality, and using Desiccant Pak cargo desiccant packs is a dependable way to reduce the moisture related damage during shipping and ensure that the consumer receives high-quality tobacco products and cigars.
