1 Quart 5 mil Mylar Foil Oxygen Barrier Bag 8" x 10” – 25 Pack
Equivalent in volume to a quart jar

This bag holds approximately the same volume as a quart canning jar. This size is perfect for storing herbs and spices, teas, coffee and other things that you want in smaller quantities. These bags are FDA Approved for food storage. Use 1 100cc oxygen absorber in each bag then seal with our Optimum Hot Jaw Heat Sealer (or your clothing iron set on the hottest setting). Just a note: because the bags are green, a silver Sharpie permanent marker will show up better than a black Sharpie permanent marker.

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.
