Here’s What You’ll Need

  • white rice
  • scissors
  • mylar bags
  • oxygen absorbers
  • food grade bucket
  • hot iron
  • duct tape
  • marker

Step By Step Instructions

Step 1.

Inspect your rice for any insects and pests.

Step 2.

Clip off one top corner of your rice packet with
the scissors. Fill up your mylar bags with the rice.

Step 3.

Heat up your iron, and seal all your bags about
halfway along the top. Start off on the sides.

Step 4.

Cut one of the mylar bags, so that a small pack of
oxygen absorbers can fit into it comfortably.

Step 5.

Remove the oxygen absorbers you need from the pack
and then reseal the unused ones in the mylar bags.

Step 6.

Place an oxygen absorber in each bag with rice, and
the seal them using the iron.

Step 7.

Cut up some a strip of duct tape, stick it onto each
bag and mark the bags.

Step 8.

Place your bags into the food grade bucket. Cut out
the serving size from the original rice packaging
and store throw that into the bucket as well.

Step 9.

Rip off the bottom of the bucket lid, and then use
a rubber mullet to secure the lid on the top.

Step 10.

Don’t forget to mark the top of the bucket, with how
much rice there is in it, as well as the expiry date.

When marking your sealed bags, write the type of food which in this case is rice and the expiry date. Rice stored this way in mylar bags can last up to 25 years. As well as the serving size, you can also cut out anything else from the packaging that you think you may need, for example cooking instructions.
