Mylar bags are amazing for long term food storage and are a great complement to vacuum sealing. But why? Mylar bag films offer an extremely low Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR) due to its thick foil laminate layer. Providing three layers of protection from moisture, light, and odor. Mylar is extremely flexible and thin, while also being very strong and durable. It is puncture-resistant and easy to use. The opacity of the bag will also preserve the nutrients of your food.
Food preservation, when done properly, has the ability to keep items fresh for months or years longer than traditional food storage methods. Using mylar bags in conjunction with oxygen absorbers can add more time, and in some cases up to 30 years!
