Hi guys :-) My name's Mike and I'm new to the forum, I've joined this and another forum hoping someone can give me some more info on the things I need to know. I want to store food long-term, I have canned food but want to store grain, rice etc preferably lasting as long as possible! Does anyone have any experience in long-term food storage, I know there's bags you can buy, but what the difference is between mylar and aluminium foil coated bags I have no idea! Anyone with any experience or links I' be grateful. Thanks for your time guys and thanks for the forum!

Mike

Mylar is the same as Aluminumcoates foil bags.

Here are a few basic infolinks.

This should cover the basics.

Remember to store what you eat, and eat what you store. ;)

Hello, sorry I posted in the wrong place if someone could delete the new thread I created, sorry about that.

Hi again, thanks so much for the information. I'm pretty excited to get everything ready although maybe I should have started earlier. Never too late though I suppose! :-) I found a loadof info at http://www.mylarshop.com/mylar-shop-articles and http://www.sorbentsystems.com/mylar.html I decided I want to go with Mylar rather than other foil bags as, for the price extra, I think it's worth it. I ended up going with these bags: http://www.mylarshop.com/mylar-bags/hea ... 5cm-x-35cm as I'm in the UK so the Sorbent Systems shipping is too much. They should arrive any day so I'll put up a review if / when they arrive! I haven't got a heat sealing thing but apparently an iron will do and this is a good video on how to do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fk9b0dAt ... autoplay=1 If anyone knows of any shops in the UK other than the one I picked I'd be grateful. Anyway I'll be back with a review and maybe a video on how to store grain if I can find a video camera. Thanks everyone and thanks for your time. Mike

Well , in our kitchen we have stored two packs of regular rice for making porridge. And since my wife don't like porridge , and the kids have moved out, there is not much porridge cooking in our house any more. But I like it , and yesterday I decided to make my self some, since the wife was away for the weekend anyway . And I picked one of the packs of rice and checked the expired date. Best before 10.2006 it said. The other pack said best before 09.2010. Needless to say I picked the oldest one and made myself some rice porridge and it was perfect. Just as it used to be. Not a hint of any foul taste. So there you go, you can store rice for a long time without much effort as long as it is stored dry. Maybe I shall keep the pack for another ten years and make myself another load of porridge, and make a report of it.
