Quoting Lady:
Nice tutorial!
Where do you get the insulation btw? Is there any specific food-grade variant necessary or any thermal insulation from let's say home depo material would suffice?

Hi Lady, I got the insulation from a local sewing store. The food is not directly contacted with the bag, you can put the food in a food storage first, then put it in the bag. That will keep the food safe.
