VACUUM BAGS TO EXTEND SHELF LIFE
Thanks to vacuum bags for food, you can prevent a lot of waste. They enable you to significantly extend the shelf life of a large number of foods. In some cases you can extend the shelf life by a few days, but sometimes it is also possible to increase it up to tenfold.
ALUMINUM AND TUBE FOIL
At Natural Spices you will find a wide range of vacuum bags. These can be made of aluminum or of tubular foil. You can buy them in different pack sizes. In addition to a bacteria-free inside, the aluminum bags also have the property that they protect against discolouration.
THE DIFFERENT THICKNESSES OF VACUUM BAGS
At Natural Spices you can easily order a variety of vacuum bags online. The vacuum bags differ from each other in terms of thickness and size. The thickness is expressed in MY (microns). Of course, the thicker the bag, the firmer it is. This is certainly important if you want to store some "sharper" foods. Where a portion of risotto will not cause any problems, the vacuum packaging of pieces of meat including bone is a different story. To prevent the bag from tearing, it is best to choose a thicker version.
In addition to the thickness of the vacuum bags, the size is also important. Always consider which bag you need exactly. Bags that are too small will not seal well enough, while a bag that is too large will take an unnecessarily long time to pump out the air. A job that becomes time-consuming and expensive. The former number of the dimension refers to the width of the opening of the vacuum bags. The narrower you buy the bag, the lower the waste. You should always leave a space of about seven centimeters empty at the top.
VACUUM BAGS FOR ONE SERVING
The size 20x25 is widely used, this roughly equates to a portion for one person. The bag also has a handy size for when you want to defrost it in a frying pan. The bag fits right in there. For example, using the sous-vide technique you can easily defrost and heat a meal, often in no more than 15 minutes. When heating your food, always keep in mind the maximum temperature that the vacuum bags can handle.
