Mylar Bags 7 MIL in XX Large
Mylar films have extremely low Oxygen Transmission Rates due to the foil layer. The thickness of the film overall is not as important as the thickness and quality of this metalisation when it comes to long-term food storage. This is because oxygen cannot penetrate metal. And strength? Even one square inch of this Mylar film can support the weight of two and a half cinder blocks!

- Bags Free of BPA and other toxins
- Long Term Food Storage

*Mylar Bag must be filled completely. Food types can be deceiving and may contain far more air than you thought therefore it is okay and a great idea to use more absorbing power than necessary. Flour can be 50% air! Pastas can be 75% air! A larger capacity Oxygen Absorber will help account for this. If there was a tiny leak in the seal, a larger absorber will continue to absorb oxygen for many years.
|Oxygen Absorption Required for Common Foods|
Oxygen Absorbers for Long Term Food Storage. To ensure adequate oxygen absorption for long term preservation of food Survival Supplies Australia recommends mylar bags should be filled completely & food packed tightly. There is nothing wrong with using more oxygen absorbers than necessary. If you are unsure of the quantity of oxygen absorbers needed, always go with a higher quantity. Oxygen Absorbers from PackFreshUSA will absorb 180% to 300% of their rating to have a substantial buffer of safety.
Note: like flour and powdered mixes consist of very fine particles, they can contain a surprising amount of air. Be aware that 300cc oxygen absorption quantity per 3.8 litres isn’t enough for food types like pasta.
