This is IMPAK's comprehensive guide for long term food storage. It's a guide for you to prepare for any natural disaster or emergency that comes your way. If you are preparing for the possibility of a food shortage or disaster, IMPAK supplies the necessary materials for long-term food and product storage. These are general suggestions and may not apply to all applications. If you have different applications or conditions applying to your food storage you may need a more "custom" food storage system. We are glad to answer any questions and help recommend the best storage system for your application.

For Long Term Food Storage (LTFS), you need to have the following things; MylarFoil bags, oxygen absorbrs, and heat sealers.

MylarFoil bags are the base to LTFS success. These specific bags provide you with the protection that you need to make sure your food doesn't spoil over time. Salts, pastas, sugars, oats, and grains are all susceptible to decay from light, oxygen, and water. Mylar bags prevent these elements from degrading your food by blocking out the light and reducing the amount of moisture and oxygen that can enter the bag over time. Check out our bundles to get started.  LEARN MORE

Oxygen Absorbers will continue to protect your goods throughout the time your food is stored. Oxygen can be detrimental to food because it oxidizes complex fats, carbohydrates (sugars), and proteins. The oxygen scavengers work in a two-step process by eliminating the amount of oxygen that is in your MylarFoil Bag initially and it will continue to keep at below 0.1% during the time that your food is stored. Our Bundles match the perfect sized oxygen absorber with the right Mylarfoil bag. LEARN MORE

IMPAK's Heat sealers make sure that you have a perfect and consistent seal every time. Other sites will recommend using other methods of sealing, but to make sure that you have a consistent seal for all of your packages, be sure to use the Constant Heat Hot Jaw Sealer is the best item on the market. This hand held unit can handle quart size bags all the way up to the 5 gallon pail liners. With an approximate 0.5" seal, this sealer makes sure your food is protected for many years. LEARN MORE
