Typical shelf lives of vacuum packaged products
Oct 09, 2017

All vacuum packaged foods must be top quality, fresh and prepared in a sanitary method in order to reach optimum shelf life. In addition, shelf life can be affected by acidity, pH level, temperature and ingredients. Vacuum packaging is not a substitute for canning. Perishable food must be refrigerated. Some typical shelf lives of vacuum packaged refrigerated products, as compared to normal refrigeration, are:
