1 Gallon 5 mil Mylar Foil Food Storage Bags, 25 pack GREEN

This bag holds the same volume as a #10 can or a 1 gallon jar. The size of the bag is 10" x 16". This will be approximately 7 to 7.5 pounds of grains or beans. These bags are FDA Approved for food storage. Use 1 300cc oxygen absorber in each bag and then seal the mylar bag with our Optimum Hot Jaw Heat Sealer or your iron set on the hottest setting.

Use one 300cc oxygen absorber for foods that pack closely together like rice. Use a 500cc oxygen absorber (or 2 of the 300cc oxy absorbers) for food like pasta that has more air volume.

Size: 1 Gallon
Measures: 10" x 16"
Thickness: 5 mil
Quantity: 25 pack


IF YOU GET 2 PACKAGES OF THESE 1 GALLON MYLAR BAGS (total 50 bags) PLUS 1 PACKAGE OF THE 300 CC OXYGEN ABSORBERS (one bag has 50 oxy absorbers in it) THEN YOU WILL BE READY TO PUT UP 50 BAGS OF GRAINS, BEANS, SPICES, TEAS OR WHATEVER ELSE YOU NEED!

Sealing Mylar Bags

Just add food to the mylar foil bag, add the correct size oxygen absorber, squish out as much air as possible and then seal the mylar bag with our Optimum Hot Jaw Heat Sealer or your iron set on the hottest setting.

Do not expect all your mylar bags to look sucked in as if they were vacuum sealed. An oxygen absorber does NOT vacuum seal the bag, it gets rid of the oxygen, leaving all the nitrogen in the bag to protect your food. Sometimes the bags look sucked in, and sometimes they don't.

Please remember - Oxygen absorbers need to be used in 1 hour or less after opening the bag. If you will not be able to use them in that amount of time, then keep out what you WILL be able to use and seal the rest back up in the bag they came in. You can use a vacuum sealer like a Food Saver or Seal A Meal to reseal the bag, or you can use your heat sealer or iron to make a seal as close to the oxygen absorber packets as possible (squishing as much air as possible out of the bag before sealing).

Note: FoodSaver and Seal-A-Meal vacuum sealers do NOT reach a high enough temperature to seal the multi-layer mylar foil bags. You will not get a seal that will hold. Those vacuum sealers are designed specifically for the CLEAR single layer plastic bags sold to be used with them.
