These ready-made freeze-dry and dehydrated meals are prepared in minutes by just adding boiling water!
Freeze dried food an essential choice for uncertain times
Freeze dried foods offer many options for the person looking to prepare for an uncertain future. From stashing a mylar pouch in your pocket for a day spent hunting, to prepping for the end of the world, freeze dried foods have a place in your plans.
What exactly is freeze dried food? Freeze dried food is normal everyday food that has been dehydrated through the freeze drying process. How this works is the food is frozen and then put in a vacuum which drives the moisture from the food. This leaves a product that readily rehydrates and retains most of its nutrition, color and texture.
How is it packaged? Most freeze dried foods are packaged in #10 cans or mylar bags and plastic buckets. When stored in these air tight conditions the food will retain its nutritional value for many years.
What about cost? The easy answer is to ask, “how much is your life worth?”. Freeze dried food costs a little more than going to the grocery and buying your weekly food. On the other hand if you are used to eating out a lot or buy expensive food from the store, freeze dried food can actually save you money.
Is it convenient? Most freeze dried food can be prepared by just adding water. (Hot water is faster) Many of the fruits or veggies can be added to your normal recipes while you are cooking. Kids like to eat the fruit straight from the can. (so do some grown ups) The ice cream is best eaten as is…how’s that for convenient?
How big is the selection? One word “HUGE”, freeze dried food is everywhere. Sporting goods stores carry the smaller stuff for camping and backpacking. Online retailers like us can ship it free to your door. Just about any kind of common fruit or vegetable is available in freeze dried form. There is also milk, pudding, powdered butter, shortening and full fledged gourmet entrees.
The biggy WHY? Freeze dried food is so versatile that it is useful to just about everyone. It is especially important to people who are preparing for an uncertain future. As mentioned before hikers, campers and hunters can take advantage of its convenience while on the trail. Preppers can order in a years supply if they feel like it and be secure in the knowledge that their food is secure.
Even if you don’t eat it the entire time freeze dried food can stretch your existing food supply when the garden isn’t in season. This is very important to keep you healthy when your only options are the meat you can hunt down.
Freeze dried food is a smart choice to help secure and uncertain future.
