Key factors for long term storage of foodOxygen
It is necessary to remove oxygen to preserve food. Oxygen is the cause of oxidation and will negatively affect stored food. For best results we use an oxygen absorber in each #10 can to ensure an oxygen free environment.Moisture
Humidity and moisture will spoil your food and allow bacteria to begin the process of breaking down your food. Once open, store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place to prolong shelf life.Temperature
|Store your long term food storage in a cool, dry place that is free from large swings in temperature for best results. It is preferable to store your products at a constant temperature below 75 degrees. As a rule of thumb, the cooler the temperature, the longer the shelf life. A basement is a good location, the attic is a bad location.|
Food should be stored in a dark space to avoid exposure to light. #10 cans eliminate exposure to light.
Food stored in #10 cans under ideal conditions can last 25+ years.
