Have you found some storage methods are more effective than others?
Thank you very much for sharing this - I've been wanting to know more about the oxygen absorbers and I was very happy to see your post.
Glad to hear! I was getting a bit worried with all the talk of vacuum sealers and O2 packets.Dehydrated food doesn't need to go in the freezer. A freezer is an expensive way to store food so you want to conserve room for what really needs to go there.
I personally don't like to remove oxygen from dehydrated food. Mold and mildew won't grow in a vacuum but other nasty bugs will. I prefer to lose a food to mold instead of losing a loved one to Listeria. So, I store dehydrated food in canning jars or freezer bags but I don't worry about oxygen eliminators or vacuum packing. Properly dehydrated food is shelf-stable all on its own.
