All types of food suitable for freezing or storing in the fridge can be vacuum packed, which protects the food from freezer damage. Use a food sealer together with vacuum storage bags and plastic film, which can be washed and reused. By vacuum packing food, you help prolong the shelf life of fresh food and it is a hygienic way to store it. If you need to marinate meat or vegetables, a handy tip is to use a vacuum storage bag to do so, as it only takes a few minutes.
