Powdered Whole Egg storage methods
I recently purchased a bulk amount of powdered whole eggs from Honeyville. I would like to divide it up into smaller portions. I have one gallon mylar bags and 300cc oxygen obsorbers. (I also have a vacuum sealer.)
I have read that flour should not be compressed in a vacuum because it still contains some moisture and it may develope into a toxic mold if vacuum sealed.
1. Do powdered eggs require any special considerations?
2. Doesn't the use of oxygen obsorbers in a mylar bag compress the product in a similar way as vacuum sealing?
3. Does the use of oxygen obsorbers in a canister (can or jar) compress the product as well?
4. Can you over treat an item with oxygen obsorbers?
... I've seen videos and read articles where people have sealed powdered products using mylar bags, oxygen obsorbers while ALSO vacuum sealing in mylar and then putting it in a sealed 5 gallon bucket.
... I've seen a guy package loose flour in brown paper lunch bags, taping them shut and then vacuum sealing the paper bags inside. I'm not real concerned about flour, it's just there is nothing out there about long term storage of powdered eggs.
I'm having a difficult time choosing a method. Any help would be appreciated.
