Long Term Food Storage Information



Welcome to IMPAK's comprehensive guide for long term food storage, so you can be prepared 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.

What is Long Term Food Storage (LTFS)?



There are various sites throughout the internet that will tell you why LTFS is important, so that you can be prepared for the worst, but no site will have you better prepared than sorbent systems.com Many of you are probably already familiar with LTFS and have done research on what you need for storing your food for extended period of time, but for those of you aren't familiar and those who need a reminder, LTFS requires the following things to make sure that your food is protected for 10-15 years:

1


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


2


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 the 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
