Mylar Bags, Why Use Them?

Mylar Bags Why Use Them?

1) Provide Oxygen Protection
Mylar Bags provide great oxygen protection. Regular plastic bags and Ziploc plastic bags allow oxygen to pass through the bag into food products. Oxygen can cause discolouration, loss of taste, compromise product freshness and allow insects to breed.

Mylar Bags provide an effective oxygen barrier to help preserve your food longer while maintaining its freshness.

2) Provide Light Protection
Some types of food are more sensitive to light. When exposed to light, the temperature of the product can increase. Products such as nuts, biscuits, crisps, and chocolate will be more vulnerable to break down , spoiling, and discolouration. Mylar bags are laminated with aluminum and prevent light from damaging your precious food stores.

3) Provide Odour Protection
Most foods absorb odour, which affects the taste of the food and also decreases the amount of time you can store food.

Mylar bags are laminated with aluminum which creates an oxygen barrier that prevents contamination against odour and gases. This allows you to confidently store your food knowing it’s not vulnerable to contamination.

4) Provide Moisture Protection
Moisture can destroy your food when in storage. Dampness created by moisture can cause mold, fungus, and bacteria to form. It also allows insects to thrive and negatively affect your food.

Mylar Bags are laminated with aluminum foil and create a waterproof barrier around your food stores. Food stored in a properly sealed Mylar bag will remain completely dry.

Protect and preserve your food. ... rage-food/
