So would that mean no nuts...because they have oil in them??It's important that whatever you put inside the bags be completely dry.
Items such as rice, dried lentils, oatmeal, wheat, or split peas work well.
Items such as, for example, "dry" dog food or cat food actually have small amounts of moisture in the kibble, both water as well as oils, that likely make "dry" pet food less than ideal for long term storage.
Otherwise, as goose3 said, it's pretty straightforward. Here is a similar thread with additional info:
You're not going to get long-term (10+ years) storage out of anything with a high oil content, stored in mylar w/ O2 absorbers.So would that mean no nuts...because they have oil in them??
I checked the sticky and there is almost too much info - I read it forever and still had questions about what can be stored and how long it would last.
I'll check out this one, though.
