5 Gallon 5.0 mil Mylar Foil Oxygen Barrier Bags - 20 pak
Food Grade - For 5 & 6 Gallon Pails

Oxygen Barrier Bags (Mylar Foil Bags) will greatly increase the shelf stability of your food products. Polyethylene pails are not a true oxygen barrier by themselves. For the protection for your food items, use a mylar bag with oxygen absorbers inside of a plastic pail. These bags are Food Grade and FDA approved for food storage.

These need to be used with oxygen absorbers and then heat sealed. You would put 3 of the 500cc oxygen absorbers (1500 cc total) in the bucket if you were packing things like rice, wheat and lentils that pack together quite closely. If you were packing something with more residual air like pasta, then you would use 4 of the 500cc oxygen absorbers (2000 cc total). Some people prefer to get the 2000cc oxygen absorbers and just put one absorber in each bucket whether there is wheat, rice or pasta in the bag. Plus, the 2000cc oxygen absorbers come in a 20-pack (2 separate packets of 10) so you have 20 bags and 20 oxygen absorbers (and you only have to open 10 at a time).

You can seal these bags with your iron turned to the hottest setting, or use our super easy Optimum Heat Sealer, which has teflon coated ridges 1/2" wide by 6" long. It is designed to seal these multi-layer mylar bags. You can't use a Food Saver or Seal A Meal vacuum sealer because the heat bar on those is too narrow and doesn't reach a hot enough temperature to seal the mylar bags.

BUY ONE PACKAGE OF 20 5 GALLON SIZE MYLAR BAGS AND ONE PACKAGE OF 2000CC OXYGEN ABSORBERS (you need one 2000cc oxygen absorber per mylar bag), THEN YOU ARE READY TO FILL 20 BUCKETS WITH FOOD.

Also consider using 1 gallon size mylar bags instead of the 5 gallon size. A 1 gallon mylar bag holds about 7 1/2 pounds of grain. You can get 5 of these in a bucket. This way, you don't open a whole bucket at one time. It is also a handy size in case you want to give someone some food to help them out. You could give them a gallon bag of rice and one of beans for example.
