      Some biscuit mixes contain oil and because oil becomes rancid over time, these mixes will have a shorter shelf life even in an airtight container. You can extend that shelf life, probably by at least a couple of years, by keeping the mix refrigerated. If you really want to store biscuit mixes, look for brands that do not contain oil. Store the mix in an airtight container and in the coolest part of the house. This will help the mix stay fresh and maintain its nutrients for several years.

      A better option is to learn how to make biscuits from scratch and then stock up on those ingredients.

      As far gravy mix goes, the sealed packets will keep the mix fresh but be sure to store them in a cool location. Check for pests — insects and rodents — every so often since they can and will chew through packaging.
