Understanding Mylar : Mylar is a trade name for a polyester bag material, very low to medium air barrier. Most true Mylar bags have a shelf life of 1-3 years maximum. This is not to say they cannot go a bit longer in ideal temperature environments. There is much to-do on the Internet and via churches about storing foods in “Mylar” for up to 20 year storage.
Think about this next information while planning emergency storage supplies! The manufactures of the Mylar Bags gives a 1-3 years maximum storage. Why would you want to keep food in them for 20 years?
These Foil Pouches offer the highest air barrier protection available in a bag for your foods stuffs. The manufacture suggested shelf life is 10 years for non oil products such as beans non-roasted almonds and 5 years for products with oil such as roasted coffee, and roasted nuts.
The foil is a 7 mil thick very heavy duty with the longest shelf life possible in a foil type bag.
Store the sealed bags away from rodents or weather damage we prefer a bucket or tote container. You will be very happy with results up to 10 plus years for foods without oils. The best storage foods are beans or un-roasted almonds, white rice. Products such as brown rice, roasted coffee, roasted nuts high oil content have about 1/3 the shelf life.
If the bag fills with air the shelf life diminished greatly so check your product on a regular basis and rotation is the key to great long term storage always keeping food fresh and ready to consume.
