200cc Oxygen Absorbers
The oxygen absorbers should be used as soon as possible once opened the package and cannot be exposed in the air for more than 60 minutes. Otherwise the sachets will lose the absorbing capacity before usage.
Ensure that the sachets are stored at room temperature (5 °C to 30 °C) in their sealed package before usage. The sachets should not be exposed to direct sunlight.

Why use Mylar Bags
Mylar Bags are the ideal companion when wishing to store food long term. The material has a high tensile strength, is flexible and exhibits isolating barrier properties.
High tensile strength. Mylar is strong. When filling and sealing bags, there is little risk they will tear due to the bags weight or contents. They are also highly durable and resistant to punctures.
Light and flexible. Mylar Bags are pliable and able to conform to its contents and able to collapse when oxygen is removed.
Sealable. Mylar provides an effective non-porous barrier to the outside elements. Isolating the contents from oxygen, humidity and light exposure are key to ensuring the longevity of the contents.
Mylar Bags offer a cost effective, easy to use solution for preserving your items.
Use with Oxygen Absorbers
Before sealing your Mylar Bag, it is important to add oxygen absorbers to the contents of the bag. Oxygen Absorbers or scavengers remove the oxygen from the void of the Mylar Bag.
Removing oxygen from the Mylar Bag extends the shelf life of the Mylar Bag contents. Damage from the effects of oxygen can present in the form of changes to flavour, colour, smell, texture, mould and spoilage.
Oxygen Absorbers trap oxygen. Given that air comprises 20% oxygen and 80% nitrogen, the absorber will remove the 20% of the atmosphere that is oxygen. The volume of nitrogen remaining results in the bag deflating though not to the extent the bag becomes hard or rigid.

What you can store with Mylar Bags
Any dry, low-fat food can be stored in Mylar Bags. That means things like dehydrated fruits and veggies, Flour, Grains, Pasta, Sugar, Dried beans, Powdered milk, Cereal and Spices and Herbs are ideal candidates to be stored for greater than 5 years.
Other foods can also be stored in Mylar Bags, however given their moisture and fat content should be rotated through more regularly. See our Mylar Bag Brochure for recommended products and estimated storage times.
