With the varied ways to store dried foods for emergency food storage, it can get a little confusing.
- What’s the shelf life?
- Does it need an oxygen absorber?
- Does it need a silica packet?
- Should it be in a mylar bag or vacuum sealed bag?
The questions are endless! And sometimes I even stop and go, “wait, what’s the best way to store this?” Especially if it’s a new product that I haven’t stored before.
Someone in the Rogue Preparedness community asked if there was a chart or something they could reference for this types of questions and I couldn’t think of anything…so I created it!
With the help of my friend, Melonie, another amazing preparedness advocate, we tried to think of the most common dried foods that would need to be stored in a mylar bag or vacuum sealed bag.
I erred on the side of caution with many of the shelf lives. If you have experience with something lasting longer, or not as long, by all means, use your best judgement.
This chart is meant to be a guide, something you can quickly refer to when you need to.

Be sure to share with your friends and family that may need some help when it comes to storing dried foods for long term food storage.
