i just ordered about 60 one gallon myllar bags and wanted to know what else i can put in them other than rice, sugar, salt, wheat, and oats that will last a long time (atleast 15 years) i was thinking about peanuts that our still in the shell, if you could include how many pounds of the item fit into a gallon mylar bag that would help alot, any suggestions would be great i just started prepping and right now i figured between north koreas missles, and our tyrant of a president, putting some food back couldnt hurt.
Don't waste your mylar on salt and sugar as it will keep indefinitely as long as its kept dry and out of humid conditions.
We also store rice flour ( since we get all we want for free).
Dehydrated veggies, fruits, etc...

Must have read my mind, that is just what I was thinking. There is nothing like a bowl of hot chicken noodle soup on a cold day. I have bagged home made granola and cut bags into quarters to make small bags to put jerkey into them.

NOT nuts or peanuts!
They have oil in them that will make them go rancid,no matter how you store them. They are NOT a good shelf-stable food for prepping.
I stock peanut butter and have jars that are several years old and it's still good. We have not gotten sick from eating it. Must be the processing? Not sure.
But NUTS ... nope. Don't stock them for long term. -k
You beat me to it. No nuts. I did not see corn or dried beans on your list. They store very well.

When a defining moment comes along, you define the moment… or the moment defines you.
ANY oil bearing products have a limited life (1-5 years,) as rancididity will sit in and they will be harder to digest and may even give you a headache....wouldn't store peanuts or peanut butter more than a few years

Food, water and first aid problems?
Cereals for cooking, like farina (aka Cream of Wheat). Bob's Red Mill has a good choice: http://www.bobsredmill.com/cereals/
All kinds of dried beans, dried peas, and lentils
Whole grains that don't need further processing, just cooking: Amaranth, Quinoa, millet, teff.
If you have a mill, wheat and other grains such as rye, spelt, triticale, buckwheat
Seeds for sprouting. The Sprout People are a good source of info and good seeds for sprouting (they have over 100 types): http://sproutpeople.org/
Oily nuts or seeds can be stored in the bottom of a chest freezer, if that is an option for you. Maybe not for 15 years, but for quite a long time. And the way things seem to be going, you may be using them much sooner.
