    Does anyone have a good chart or know a website that has a good chart for estimating the shelf life of stored food? With and without Mylar bags and o2 absorbers.

    Thanks, Howard

    Always ask the Mormons these questions.They've been doing this for about 150? years.


    Go find a family with 10 kids and ask them.jk

    Thanks everyone.

    Sailorman, my wife doesn't think the information/data/equations in the Emergency Essentials storage system to be accurate. I am not done trying their system, but I believe it to be inaccurate also. I could be wrong.
