Emergency Essentials Having a Big Sale
Kevin Felts 02.24.17
Emergency Essentials specializes in disaster preparedness supplies. One of their big sellers is freeze dried food, which has a shelf life of at least 25 years when stored in the right conditions. Freeze dried food does not require any kind of special storage, just do not keep it in a shed during the middle of summer. Store the cans or pouches a climate controlled basement or closet, and everything will be fine.
To prepare the food, just add hot or boiling water. The freeze dried food is already cooked and ready to go. Think of freeze drying as industrial grade dehydration. Rather than using humidity to remove moisture, the food is flash frozen and then a vacuum is applied. The food is then packed in a can or pouch with an oxygen absorber. The result of the freeze drying process is a food product that can be stored for at least 25 years.
