Benefits of Vacuum Sealing Your Food

Vacuum packaging is an ideal preservation technology for all types of food, especially for fresh foods such as meat or fish. When vacuuming, we extract oxygen from around the food to seal it in the bag. Therefore, the natural process of oxidation is delayed, and its sensory properties are maintained for a longer period of time. For meat or fish, this is vital because these foods require special conditions for hygiene and food safety.

Vacuum Sealers Save You Money

Buying meats in bulk, dividing into meal-sized portions and sealing allows you to have fresh meat on hand for up to 6 months. This leads to an incredible cost savings over buying your meat from the counter before every meal.

Vacuum Sealers Preserve Food
Vacuum sealers preserve food by preventing the growth of mold or bacteria. Vacuum sealing deprives your food of oxygen. Mold and bacteria cannot grow without oxygen. This is great when buying seasonal items and food that tends to spoil quickly like vegetables, lettuce and meats. It also suitable for nuts, pasta, crackers, another other pantry items that get soft/stale when exposed to oxygen and moisture in the air.

Vacuum Sealing Protects Food
Vacuum sealing protects food from dehydration and freezer burn. Freezer burn occurs when water gets into your food. The vacuum bag keeps your food from contact with the air, so moisture cannot evaporate, making it an excellent barrier from the elements.

Protect from Freezer Burn

Vacuum sealing foods protects them from freezer burn and dehydration. Freezer burn occurs when air comes into contact with water crystals around food. Vacuum sealing helps prevent this by keeping the air out of contact with the food. Freezer burn is not a danger to your health, yet, it ruins the taste and texture of the food.

Reduce Waste

Sometimes we plan to buy in bulk to save money, which eventually causes the food freezer burned or forgotten in the fridge. By vacuum sealing excess food and leftovers, you can not only save additional money, but also eat those foods, thereby reducing waste! In addition, it reduces the waste of packaging from not having to buy more packaged store items.
