7 High-Barrier Packaging Tips for Longer Food Shelf-Life

Emergency Preparedness

You know that feeling when you open a bag of chips, and they're stale before you even take the first bite? It's frustrating, right? But with the right high-barrier packaging, you can keep your food fresher for longer. Here are 7 practical tips to extend the shelf-life of your food with high-barrier packaging. Let's dive in and discover how you can protect your favorite snacks and ingredients from getting spoiled too soon.

Key Takeaways

  • High-barrier packaging materials, such as metallized films and aluminum foil laminates, offer superior protection against moisture, oxygen, light, and contaminants.
  • Ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) provides enhanced protection against odors and flavors, contributing to longer shelf life for food products.
  • Selecting the right high-barrier material requires considering factors such as cost, compatibility, shelf-life extension potential, puncture resistance, transparency, and heat-sealing capabilities.
  • Techniques for longer shelf life include vacuum sealing, the use of oxygen absorbers, moisture control through desiccants and barrier films/coatings, and proper sealing and storage practices.
