5 things you didn’t know about SOS Food Lab Vacuum Packaging Technology.
January 3, 2022
1. Food stays fresh longer. OK you probably knew this. But how much longer?
Studies have shown that vacuum packaging can increase product shelf life from 50%-400%. The key to increasing product shelf life is determining the ideal atmosphere within the packaging for the product being packaged. At SOS Food Lab, we extract the oxygen to ideal levels and use a specialty foil. Our products are guaranteed to stay fresh and taste great for 5 years.
2. Sealed against the elements.
Our protective foil is 4.5-8 mm thick – the most common vacuum bag thickness is a 3 mm thick. With the proper seal, vacuum packaging protects our products from dust, moisture, insects, and a variety of other external elements that may harm or damage products.
3. Locks in flavors.
At SOS food Lab we bake our products to taste delicious. Our vacuum seal protects the flavors, the texture, and the moisture content.
4. Efficient storage.
Since our bars are rectangular, the vacuum seal creates a flat surface so it’s easy to stack products, on a shelf, in your go-bag, or even in your car.
5. Military tested.
SOS Food Lab supplies the Coast Guard, the Navy and other military branches with emergency food bars. Our vacuum packaging is designed for almost anything, being dropped from helicopters, stashed in life rafts, and other military operations.
When we say our food rations are packed and sealed for almost any type of emergency, you can be assured that we have tested and retested our process to protect the food that you may need for survival.
