How to Store Dry Food for a Long Time in 5 Gallon Buckets

5 gallon buckets
Storing dry food is crucial for some people who have little access – or wish – to frequently going to the supermarket to buy foods. With a 5 gallon bucket or more, this problem can be easily tackled.

5 gallon pails are cheap and strong. Some of them have food grade certification that allows them to contain food ingredients inside. This is what you need for your food storing project. Food-graded buckets.

Gamma seal lids
Next you will need a gamma seal lid. This lid is different from the normal pail lids since it provides an airtight environment inside the bucket. Food easily deteriorates when it has intense contact with oxygen. So the gamma seal lids are needed to completely block the air from the outside to get into contact with the stored food inside.

That is basically just it. Easy and practical and everyone can store their dry foods for 5 to 10 years with only 5 gallon buckets and gamma seal lids.
