Product Description

Size: 20-1-Gallon

These Dry-Packs mylar bags combined with Oxy-Sorb Oxygen absorbers, when stored in a rigid container, have proven to be the ideal way to store dehydrated goods for long-term storage. Mylar bags protect your food investment from the effects of oxygen, moisture contamination, and light penetration. They are excellent for the long-term storage of dehydrated foods because they have a FDA approved sealant layer and can be heat sealed with a standard clothing iron on the wool setting, or a hair straightener. Simply add the dehydrated food to the mylar bag, place appropriate number of oxygen absorbers on top, and push out as much residual air as possible before sealing the bag.

Easy to use and works great!

The oxygen absorbers work well especially if you remove as much air as possible before sealing the mylar bag.

Excellent for emergency food storage, a cheaper way than purchasing prepackaged dried fruits, grains, and legumes from emergency supply stores. A hot iron on polyester to cotton setting seals your food and oxygen scavenger in the bag, which you seal only ¾'s of the way, roll to squeeze out any remaining air, then seal the rest of the opening. When stored in a cool environment such as a basement or cellar the Mylar bag conforms more to your food, like a vacuum seal. I've stored dried fruits, lentils, beans, rice, coffee... keep in mind anything with oils that can turn rancid will have a shorter self life such as peanuts and brown rice, but beans can have a shelf life of up to 10 years and more...

[...]

I still purchase Mountain House brand freeze dried meats, since I don't have the equipment to dry and store meat correctly. I agree with the comment made below that the oxygen absorbers "could" have individual wrapping to keep them fresh and from reacting with the oxygen in the environment, but to address this issue I store mine in a sealed Mylar bag! Great purchase, priceless to campers and survivalist who want to save money with "do it yourself" food storage!

These mylar bags are of high quality and have had no problem holding the food we put in them like beans, rice, pasta, quinoa, sugar, salt and dried veggies. The oxygen absorbers are also of high quality with a indicator pill included with the bunch. We opened the bag of absorbers, used about half and put the rest in a small mason jar with the pill. Initially, the pill was turning the bad color meaning that the oxygen absorbers wouldn't work but within a few hours of being in the jar the pill turned the proper color again. We did a second round a few weeks later and the same thing happened so the packets can take being exposed to the air for a very brief period as long as you store them in an airtight container. My husband and I sealed the bags together using my hair straightener... this worked extremely well! The sealing process definitely requires two people, one to hold taught and one to heat seal.
*Just a tip, we found the the more we filled the bags the more vacuum sealed they looked. The company says they don't have to looked vacuum sealed because Nitrogen can remain in the bags and seem like air but all oxygen is actually gone. I believe them but there is something more satisfying about seeing the bags looked vacuum sealed so you KNOW there is no oxygen in there!

These bags are translucent. See the picture I uploaded. Otherwise, I think this is a good option and a good deal for a beginner like me.

Long-term storage requires protection from insects, rodents, moisture, oxidation, heat, and light. Based on their initial performance, I believe these bags and oxygen absorbers will be effective against insects, moisture, and oxidation. The bags are not light proof, and no mylar bag will protect against rodents.

Because they aren't lightproof, food stored in these bags needs to be kept in a dark environment. The 5-gallon plastic pails often recommended are also not lightproof and will not protect food stored in these bags. Lining the pail with aluminum foil would exclude the light.

I am a beginner at food storage, so I bought these as a low-investment option to start with. I bought 60 bags and 60 oxygen absorbers from Advice & Beans, fulfilled by Amazon. The bags mic to 3.5 mils, and the oxygen absorbers came in 3 bags of 20 with pink indicators.

I used the first pack of 20 oxygen absorbers to bag up 50 pounds of rice and 50 pounds of pinto beans. When I managed to squeeze out most of the air before sealing, my bags tightened up as if they were vacuum packed. See the picture I uploaded. Overall, I am satisfied.

More robust bags (4.5 to 7 mil) have thicker aluminum layers that will provide total light protection and better overall performance. I will probably graduate to that kind of product now that I feel more confident in my ability to pack and seal correctly.

Excellent quality bags, strong and durable, these mylar bags hold up well when filled with dry food items like pasta, dried beans, rice, and grain. These kinds of dried goods might puncture flimsier bags made of plastic (like the popular "Food Saver" types of bags, which I also use, but mostly for meats, which I vacuum seal and freeze). The oxygen absorbers are also of a high quality and do the job well.

The oxygen absorbers actually cause a vacuum effect after they've been put into the bag with the food and sealed tightly. With time, the oxygen absorbers actually reduce the volume of air in the bag (whatever bit of air might have been left over at time of sealing. The next day, if you find a bag or two that don't have the appearance of being tightly vacuum sealed - or if they still have air in them- then it is safe to assume those bags have a faulty seal. The most common source of interference with forming a good seal on the bag is if you have trapped some flour, sugar or grain at the spot where the heat-seal was formed.

I can also confirm that the Food Saver vacuum sealer only partially works with these bags. The seal portion works fine but the vacuum will not work. The reason is, if you look at "Food Saver" plastic bags, they have a raised structure designed to allow air to pass out of them under the pressure of the vacuum machine. These mylar bags will not allow air to pass because their surface is not abraided or raised. So, when you slide the mylar into the machine, the rubber lips inside the machine will press the mylar bag shut. The vacuum will run a few seconds, but no air will escape. After those few seconds, the heat sealer will activate and form a nice seal on the mylar.
