1 QUART Stand Up ZIPLOCK Mylar Foil Oxygen Barrier Bag 4.3 mil - 25 Pack
Will hold contents of a 1 Quart canning jar

This is a 4.3 mil gusseted (stands up) Ziplock mylar foil oxygen barrier bag that holds 1 quart of rice, beans, pasta, etc. This is approximately 1 1/2 pounds of rice or wheat. This size is also perfect for storing herbs and spices, and other things that you want in smaller quantities (maybe M&M's for the kids?). These bags are FDA Approved for food storage. Use 1 100cc oxygen absorber in each bag for items that pack closely together like rice and wheat. Use 2 of the 100cc oxygen absorbers (or one of the 300cc oxy absorbers) for things with more residual air like pasta and rolled oats. Then seal with either your clothing iron or our Optimum Hot Jaw Heat Sealer.

These 1 quart mylar ziplock bags seal on the ziplock end. You would put your foodstuff in the bag along with the oxygen absorber, squish out as much air as possible (but don't vacuum seal) and zip the bag closed. You then seal the bag with our Optimum Heat Sealer (or your iron set to Wool or a bit hotter).

Just because they have a ziplock seal THEY STILL NEED TO BE SEALED with a heat sealer or iron. The ziplock feature is there for convenience AFTER the sealed bag has been opened.

Make sure you do not seal all the way to the zipper part because you will have to cut the sealed part off to open the bag. If you seal all the way to the zipper, once you cut the sealed part off there will be nothing to grab onto to open the ziplock part.

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.
