    Dear people,

    I’m only a novice when it comes to prepping, but I noticed almost all of you use oxygen absorbers with mylar bags (or mason jars with a vacuum mouth device) to store dry foods. I happend to have a professional chamber vacuum machine and when I vacuum dry foods, like rice, wheat or beans in mylar bags, it becomes hard like a rock and you can reach up to 99.8% vacuum inside the mylar bag. My question is: does this also happen with oxygen absorbers added to a nearly sealed mylar bag? Or is the achieved vacuum much less this way? Thx!
