Originally produced for the U.S. Military and NASA, freeze-dried food has several advantages over frozen foods. Frozen foods retain flavor and nutritional value, but require low temperature storage conditions. Freeze-drying preserves freshness, color, and aroma, while being completely shelf-stable.
Long Shelf-Life: Food Insurance utilizes a variety of preservation methods. Freeze-drying and dehydration are the most commonly used methods to eliminate moisture and oxygen while preserving nutrients, flavor, taste, color and aroma. However, some items are best left in their natural state, like beans, legumes and rice.
All Food Insurance food is carefully packaged and sealed to eliminate oxygen and prevent the re-absorption of moisture. These preservation methods and packaging processes allow Food Insurance products to be stored without refrigeration, and be shelf-stable for up to 25 years... Our food not only tastes the best, but also provides you and your family with a high level of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. There are no sugar drinks, crackers or other highly processed foods in our basic and premium supplies and our premium plans includes two servings of fruits and veggies per day.
Food Insurance® uses two different types of packaging for our foods. The food in our bug-out bags and bucket supplies come stored in heavy-duty mylar pouches, making them compact and portable. These packages are designed for on-the-go convenience.The food in our emergency food storage plans are packaged in food-grade #10 cans and have up to a 25+ year shelf-life.

Convenient Storage: Traditional food storage containers are often awkward, bulky and come in different shapes and sizes. This makes it difficult to discreetly store or even find a place in your home for emergency food. Food Insurance's compact design allows you to store more in less space.

Easy Preparation: Food Insurance® products can be prepared (rehydrated/reconstituted) quickly and easily. Just add water and stir. Hot water is recommended for the fastest reconstitution time (8-10 minutes) and the best taste for some products. Other products are also available with cold water preparation.
Gourmet Quality: Quite simply, Food Insurance® products are delicious! Few people enjoy eating the same thing day after day. Your emergency food solution should offer a variety of great-tasting foods that taste and look as fresh as homemade meals.
