The Science Behind Mylar Survival Food Packaging

What would you say if I told you that 4Patriots packages its Survival food in bags made out of biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate?

You might say, “Huh?” Or ask, “What the heck is that?” I wouldn’t blame you. That’s a difficult-to-pronounce mouthful.

This is the same material used by NASA in its spacesuits to protect astronauts from temperature extremes and micrometeoroid impacts.

Here in the United States we know it by its brand name – Mylar. That’s a word that comes off the tongue a little easier, right?

YouTube video provides food for thought

Watch this YouTube video in which 4Patriots videographer Evan tells and shows you how Mylar protects our Survival food.

It’s titled, “The Science Behind the 4Patriots Mylar Packaging.” It lasts less than three minutes.

I recommend checking it out. And I guarantee it will convince you that we are using the best material available to make sure your food stays fresh for 25 years.

At the end I’ll let you know how you can get a 72-hour Survival Food Kit from 4Patriots… absolutely FREE.

Defeating food’s enemies

In the video, Evan takes you behind the scenes to show you how 4Patriots prepares Survival food. And he reveals the science behind how Mylar packaging works.

He’ll first demonstrate what makes food spoil under normal conditions – air, light and moisture. Air causes oxidation, which creates undesirable changes to food. Such as color, flavor and nutrient content.

Light exposure causes a chemical reaction that damages pigments, vitamins, fats and proteins.

Moisture allows microorganisms like bacteria, yeasts and molds to develop. They could even make your food deadly.

Low-heat dehydration the best option

There are different methods Survival food manufacturers use to remove moisture from food.

One is rapid dehydration. It’s a quick, inexpensive way to do it. The problem is that during this process, nutrients and flavor are ruined.

Instead, 4Patriots uses low-heat dehydration. It takes longer and it’s more expensive. But it’s well worth it because it locks in flavor and nutrition.

Once your food is dehydrated, we place it in Mylar pouches. This packaging is lightweight yet tough enough to withstand the pressures in outer space.

Signed, sealed and delivered

The 4Patriots Mylar film structure consists of three layers. One layer at the bottom gives the bag strength.

The aluminum layer in the middle is designed for long-term food storage. The top sheet is a puncture-resistant layer.

This high-tech packaging protects your food against its worst enemies – air, light and moisture.

We then add a high-capacity oxygen absorber to suck out any remaining air within the Mylar bag. Finally, the bag is sealed to keep it airtight and keep your food fresh for 25 years.
