Moist foods, such as home or commercially canned goods, in mylar packaging last no more than ten years, but storing moisture-rich foods is not recommended due to the increased likelihood of botulism. Dried foods, like beans and grains, can last 20 to 30 years when stored correctly in sealed foil bags.
Never mind, how do you store food in Mylar bags long term?
MYLAR FOOD STORAGE ACTION PLAN
Decide which foods you want to store and buy them.
Purchase your Mylar bags in the right sizes (1-gallon / 5-gallon).
Make sure you have plenty of oxygen absorbers.
Purchase a few 5-gallon food-grade plastic buckets.
Make sure you have a heat sealing device (recommended heat sealer).
In any event, can you store coffee in Mylar bags? You can store roasted beans in Mylar bags with oxygen absorbing pads as well, but their shelf life will be less than six months under most circumstances. You can also store them in an airtight freezer bag for about a month before they will start to go stale.
Accordingly, how long will pancake mix last in Mylar bags?
How long will Cereal last in Mylar bags?
Can boxed cereal such as Life cereal be vacuum sealed in a jar, and how long is the storage life? ANSWER: The shelf life of an unopened box of cereal from the store is about 1 year (2-3 months if opened). I would think putting it in Mylar bags with O2 absorbers would extend the shelf life into years.

The answer is no, because they are not in the least bit puncture resistant (think rodents). They really need that bucket or other food-grade container for support. The 20"x30" mylar bags we sell fit a 4.25, 5, or 6 gallon plastic bucket perfectly.
These bags are great and what a bargain compared to other bags on Amazon. I bought these to ship things in. The ziploc seal is solid and I heat-sealed above it with a food sealer. They're very sturdy, as the edges are sealed very well.
Always keep the product in a cool, dry place away from sources of moisture. As for opened boxes of pancake mix, it is best to transfer the product to an airtight container then store in the pantry. If you made pancake batter from scratch, you can store it in the fridge.
