Mylar bags

Post by Teddybearhugz » Mon Feb 04, 2019 1:52 am

Hi :D
When storing dry foods in mylar bags, what would be the expected "use by date" for different items, eg... Nuts, dried veges/fruit etc
Thank you for your help


When left is right and right is left... Which way is up?!?! Never ever never, give up!!!

I just watched a US video (guildbrook farms) that said they have been known to last up to 40years. I'm trying to source some myself.

I was told by a friend that the thicker the mylar bag the better to protect it from unwanted issues eg. Insects, water and pollution. I've also been told that if storing in preserving jars with heat for things such as rice, oats etc it can last in excess of 30 years. Wandering which solution would be the better approach for a large family, mylar or preserving jars or maybe even using dry ice for the freeze dried method .... Thoughts??? I also watched a few YouTube clips and pretty sure the guildbrook was amongst the ones I watched with the preserving jars heated etc for dry ingredients
