An excellent method of food storage involves the use of food sealer vacuum technology. This involves some special equipment which creates the vacuum and seals the packaging. The better systems allow you to choose between soft plastic (like plastic bags), or harder clear plastic canisters with vacuum seal lids. In the latter case, the equipment uses a tube which connects to the lid to draw air from the canister. These systems do require a small amount of electricity to package the materials. One of the primary advantages of this approach is that no heating is required for packaging. This is an excellent method for storing dehydrated foods. In the next post, we’ll try and include a photo of the system we use.
