The Department of Homeland Security & the American Red Cross has recommended every family in America have a backup food reserve in case of natural disaster or terrorism. Mountain House freeze-dried foods are ideal to meet these recommendations. We offer several specially designed units to simplify your preparation Pre-Made Food Reserve Units. Think of your survival food reserves as an "Insurance Policy" you can eat. In today's uncertain world, it pays to be prepared one year to early than one day to late. Be safe… Be Prepared!
Mountain House packs their long storing foods in double enameled #10 cans to preserve the food's flavor, texture, color, and nutrients. To “double” ensure freshness and prevent the food from turning rancid, an oxygen absorber packet is placed in each can. (This product is not harmful to your health, but is not meant to be eaten. Simply discard after opening can).
Now in contrast, ALL other food companies use blends of dry powered mixes and seasonings then combine them with either dehydrated and/or freeze-dried ingredients. So is this bad? No, not at all. It’s simply a less expensive process to mixed dry components with a few freeze-dried items. Unfortunately, this means that most other brands of storage foods require hot boiling water and take much longer to reconstitute (10 to 60 minutes vs. 5 to 8 minutes for Mountain House).
Mountain House foods go through a more time consuming and expensive freeze-drying process. In addition, most of their foods include REAL MEATS like tender chicken, beef, pork and danish ham rather that less expensive meat substitutes like textured vegetable protein (TVP). Surprisingly, their gourmet line of foods cost about the same or less that other brands. They currently are the #1 Selling Backpacking & Camping foods sold in the USA today. That says a lot about their quality & premium taste.
