The producers of our emergency food have been in business over 40 years. They are experts at eliminating water and oxygen from the survival food, which is a critical part of long-term food preservation. Many of the recipes we use today, which have been around for over 30 years, have been tested and found to be nutritionally sound and great tasting after being stored over that period.

Many of our foods are freeze-dried while the rest are either dehydrated or in their original state (oatmeal, rice, etc.). With freeze-drying, preservation is possible because the greatly reduced water content inhibits the action of microorganisms and enzymes that would normally spoil or degrade the substance. Freeze-drying also causes less damage to the substance than dehydration methods using higher temperatures. Freeze-drying does not usually cause shrinkage or toughening of the material being dried. In addition, flavors, smells and nutritional content generally remain unchanged.
