How does canning help preserve food for longer?

Canning is an important and safe method for preserving food if used properly. The canning process involves placing foods in jars or similar containers and heating them to a temperature that kills microorganisms that cause food to go of. During this heating process air is forced out of the jar and as it cools a vacuum seal is formed. This vacuum seal prevents air from getting back into the product bringing with it contaminating microorganisms.
