And this is why we have said here over and over again that if you want to store something beyond its usual pantry life, you should package it with oxygen absorbers in jars protected from light, cans, or mylar. You should protect the mylar from damage by placing it inside a can, tote, or bucket. A plastic bucket itself will not prolong shelf life, though, and adding an oxygen absorber to one will only prolong it somewhat since plastic is semipervious to both the oxygen and humidity in air.
This was just a bucket that I put flour in without the mylar or absorbers to see what it would be like in a few years. We have over a 2 year supply of most things in mylar or canned . Was just a test to see how long it would last. No loss, still good enough for bread for chickens as treat from time to time.
