Silica Gel Packets
    #645983 - 05/26/02 12:03 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

I am storing some already dried shrooms in a zip lock bag with a silica gel packet in the bag with them. Is this ok? And are these the same things they put in beef jerky bags? If having these packets actually touching the shrooms is a bad thing, please let me know. Thanks!

I think you would be safer not having them touching the mushies, otherwise i dont see any thing wrong w/ it.

the best way to use silica gel packets is the following:

put your mushies in a plastic sandwich baggie, put the baggie in a canning jar of appropriate size. toss in a couple silica gel packets in the bottom of the canning jar and call it good.

Sorry to bump such an old thread, but I'm curious about the current opinions on the same topic.  I got some food grade silica gel packets.  Has anyone just tossed these packets in with a batch of cracker dry mushrooms into an airtight container/bag without ill effects? Or is it still recommended direct contact should be avoided?

Also, the ones I got are 5gram  packets.  How many of these would be required per ounce of cracker dry mushies?

I take gel packs from Beef Jerky packages and put them in a air tight mason jar. If it can touch jerky then it can touch mushrooms.
