There are many benefits to vacuum-sealed meals... here are some:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Vacuum Sealing Extends Shelf Life
The shelf life of your food is greatly extended when you vacuum seal it. Vacuum sealing food preserves it 3 to 5 times longer than food stored in plastic containers or bags. The exact amount of time food will last in vacuum sealing varies depending on whether you are storing in the refrigerator, freezer or pantry.
4. Food Lasts Longer
Frozen food that is vacuum sealed lasts an average of 2-3 years, while it will last 6-12 months, on average, stored in other ways. Most vacuum sealed foods will last in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks, which is much longer than the typical 1-3 days food will last when stored conventionally in a refrigerator.
5. Efficient Food Organization
Vacuum sealing makes for efficient, organized packaging. Vacuum sealed food takes up less room in your refrigerator or freezer and allows you to easily see the foods you are storing.
6. No Freezer Burn With Chamber Vacuum Sealers
Vacuum sealing provides food an air-tight environment, preventing the crystals that cause freezer burn from forming on your food. Vacuum sealing keeps the moisture in your food for an extended period of time, allowing you to enjoy food that tastes fresh months after you have stored it.
7. Vacuum Sealed Food Tastes Better
Vacuum sealing holds in the moisture, juices, and flavor of the food. You’ll notice the difference in taste.
8. Vacuum Sealed Keeps Food Safe
Vacuum sealing removes most of the oxygen, preventing chemical reactions triggered by oxygen that cause food to spoil. It also prevents bacteria buildup that can spoilage in foods.
9. Vacuum Sealed Keeps Food Fresh
Vacuum sealing not only keeps food from spoiling, it keeps fats in the food from going rancid, keeps foods from changing color as they often do in the freezer, and prevents them from getting a slimy film or bad odor.
10. Store Liquids Easy Vacuum Sealed
Place the liquid in the freezer for a couple hours to harden it a little. Then place the partially frozen liquid into a sealing bag, leaving room at the top for sealing. You can also seal liquids inside a jar and vacuum seal the jar.
