In today’s world of financial instability, food shortages, possible inflation and rising commodity prices Long Term Food Storage must be considered by any prudent individual or family. Food grade metalized Mylar bags, when combined with oxygen absorbers and buckets are considered the best way to store large quantities of food for 20 – 30 years. These Mylar bags block sunlight and provide an oxygen and moisture barrier. To seal Mylar bags simply take a hot iron and iron the opening shut.
These Mylar Bags are 20″ X 30″ and fit 5 – 6 gallon buckets. Bags are food grade and 4.3 mil thick.
Each Bag contains 20 – 300cc oxygen absorbers. When used with proper packaging and sealing, the oxygen in the packaging is greatly reduced. Our absorbers bring the oxygen level down reliably to .01% or less. These Absorbers are perfect when combined with one gallon (10″x14″) Mylar Bags. The benefits of using oxygen absorbers are as follows:
* Significantly improves keeping qualities of polyunsaturated fats and oils
* Helps retain fresh-roasted flavor of coffee and nuts
* Prevents oxidation of spice oleoresins present in spices themselves and in seasoned foods
* Prevents oxidation of vitamins A, C and E
* Extends life of pharmaceuticals
* Inhibits mold in natural cheeses and other fermented dairy products
* Delays non-enzymatic browning of fruits and some vegetables
* Inhibits oxidation and condensation of red pigment of most berries and sauces
The oxygen absorbers come in a clear Mylar bag that can be re-closed with a hot iron to save any unused absorbers sti (more…)
