Vacuum freezing

What is the best thing to use to create "space " in a vacuum freezer pack? Softer things like part cooked veges can get a bit squished by the pressure and tonight I think I killed a lovely bread thinking I could save it for a couple of days.
The manual suggests using a spacer but I have no idea what to use that also might be ok in a microwave for defrosting

If your veges are getting squished with the vacuum, you over cooked them.

Just blanch them for sealing, not cook them.

and stop the suction before they get squished

Freeze on a tray then put in bags and vacuum seal.
