Dry food storage in sealed metal cans

by Bruce

I've just acquired a 'Tim Taylor' kind of vacuum can sealer. It can seal cans up to #12 under vacuum or at atmospheric pressure.

I'm planning on using it for whole grains, legumes, sugar, tea, coffee, etc. for long term storage.

Do you recommend vacuum packed, oxygen absorbers, both, or, not an issue?

Vacuum Packing Dry Food Storage

Hi Bruce,

Assuming vacuuming packing works as it should (and why wouldn't it?), there would be no oxygen inside the cans for the absorbers to absorb. I see no need for both - vacuum packing is sufficient.
