These ShieldPro Mylar bags combined with 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.

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.
• Easy to use with clear instructions on the bag.
• Tech support available when you need it.
• The absorbers came in three bags of 20 so you don’t have to worry about storing unused ones.
o I had 6 left from my first bag and used a canning jar and my food saver to store.
• The low cost makes it very forgiving when you error with your sealing.
• The bags let light in. However, if you place the sealed bag in a black storage container, this negates the drawback.
• I wish there a few extra absorbers for errors.
All in all I would recommend this product to anyone interested in storing for for long term emergency situations. I will be ordering more of these bags after I run out, which should be by next week.
