Mylar bags will insure your food will be available when you need it. Mylar bags are used for long term food storage because the foil barrier protects food from moisture, light and oxygen. Air cannot get in or out of a properly sealed mylar bag.
Our Mylar bags are made of a multi layer poly and aluminum foil laminated together. These bags are FDA approved, have a shiny silver appearance and are used extensively in food, medical, and general industry. It is a very popular bag due to its good puncture resistance, outstanding barrier, and relatively low cost characteristics.
Oxygen Absorber Description;
- A 300cc Oxygen Absorber is ideal for a 1 gallon size Mylar bag
- Oxygen Absorbers are pre-packaged in a factory vacuum sealed pack
- Use (1) 300cc Oxygen Absorber sachet per Mylar bag
Oxygen Absorbers designed to remove unwanted oxygen inside a packaged environment. Removing the oxygen protects dry food from developing insects or growing mold or fungi. Oxygen absorbers are safe and easy to use with food products such as dried meats, baked goods, dried spices, bulk foods and other foodstuffs. Use inside a mylar bag or foil pouch to preserve the food for long term food storage.
With relatively strong capacity of oxygen and carbon dioxide absorption, it will satisfy the requirement of keeping freshness on a wide variety of food products. By effectively removing oxygen and carbon dioxide and create a O2 & CO2-free environment in a sealed package, it will keep the freshness, original taste and color of foodstuff, and prevent it from staling, oxidative rancidity, growth of mold, aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. It will also effectively prevent the development of corrosion, rustiness, and the growth of mold on sealed clothing, instrument, etc.

How do I know if the Absorbers are good?
1. Check if the pack is vacuum sealed. The best way to identify if our product is good or not is if the original master bag is in a vacuum sealed condition. If it is no longer in vacuum condition, it is bad and can be returned. How to see if it is in vacuum condition? Using two fingers hold a corner of the master vacuum bag and see if the sachets inside the bag can move freely. If so, it means it is no longer in vacuum condition. If not, it means it is still in good vacuum condition.
2. Check the color inside the individual absorber sachets. After you open the absorber sachet and see the powder inside, if the powder is in black, it means the powder is in good condition. If the powder has some reddish color on it, it means the iron has been oxidized more or less. The more red color in it, the more oxidization it has, and the less suitable to be used. We pack our sachet with extra capacity in a way that, it will compensate the capacity loss (iron being oxidized) during its shelf life. At the end of its shelf life, the powder should be black or only very little reddish.
NOT good indicators if the oxygen absorbers are good;
1. My oxygen absorber sachets did not heat up? Our absorber contains iron powder, which is oxidized when exposed to air. There are two different mechanisms of oxidization. One is by chemical reaction, which generates lots of heat. Another is by electrochemical reaction, which does not generate much heat. The two mechanisms are working at the same time. Different formula may have different weight of one mechanism than the other. A small sachet (such as 100cc) does not contain the amount of powder and surface area (amount of air exposed) to be oxidized to generate similar amount of heat than a big sachet (such as 2000cc) does. Therefore it is very unreliable to judge the sachet's quality by feeling its heat.
2. My bag did not shrink around the contents inside? An oxygen absorbers job is to absorb the O2 inside the bag, although air is only made up of 20% oxygen. The other 78% is nitrogen and the remaining 2% other gases & water vapor. Therefore it is impossible for the oxygen absorber to absorb all the air left in a properly sealed bag since most of the air is not oxygen. However void of oxygen the air left inside your bag becomes useless for mold, bugs, and other microorganisms to grow and spoil the perishable items.
Mylar bags (foil pouches) will insure your food will be available when you need it. Made of a multi layer poly and aluminum foil laminated together. Mylar bags (foil pouches) are used for long term food storage because the metal barrier protects food from moisture, light and oxygen. Air cannot get in or out of a properly sealed mylar bag (foil pouch). Oxygen Absorbers designed to remove unwanted oxygen inside a packaged environment. Removing the oxygen protects dry food from developing insects or growing mold or fungi. Oxygen absorbers are safe and easy to use with food products such as dried meats, baked goods, dried spices, bulk foods and other foodstuffs.
