Now, you have seen that natural disasters are increasing and you are thinking about forming an emergency preparedness plan. When it comes to emergency food, what type should you store?

The best solution for long term emergency food storage is a supply of nutritious, good tasting Freeze Dried Food. Freeze Dried foods rehydrate faster than any other type of foods, and they require little or no cooking and save valuable fuel and water.

Freeze Dried Foods store longer, are nutritiously superior to other types, and taste better than any other food available for long term food storage. In addition, freeze dried foods typically have a storage life of decades, 25 years plus! Actually, they gave been proven by government testing to store with a high degree of nutritional value for over 30 years. Imagine that.

Freeze Dried foods can be used as an emergency food supply for any major disaster or emergency, whether natural or man-made. These foods are enjoyed by leaders at the highest levels of government, Congress, the Cabinet and above, senior members of the U.S. Military, and the astronauts.

This is not the same as your father’s and grandfather’s old dried stuff from WWII, Korea or even Vietnam. There have been considerable advances in food preservation technology since the 1960s. Freeze Dried Food is comparable to or superior to the best fresh frozen foods, but without the need for refrigeration or rotation.

Freeze Dried Survival Food is your best choice.

Curious How Emergency Freeze Dried Food is Made?

The Freeze Drying process

I get asked this question more than another other. How is freeze dried food made? No matter whether you are interested in purchasing emergency food from Mountain House Food or Wise Food Storage, the manufacturing process is the same.

First of all, you must understand this:

there is currently no freeze dried food that is totally organic

Reasons to Buy a Freeze Dried Food Supply

Emergency Food manufacturers buy raw ingredients by the truckload. It is the same type of food that you can buy in the grocery stores. They get it from the same suppliers. You may be disappointed knowing that, but consider why a person buys an emergency food supply. They buy it as insurance in case there is an major disaster or emergency that would limit or block their access to food in the stores.

They also realize that in a major disaster, the government is not going to be able to take care of them. If you don’t know that, you should. The Department of Homeland Security has advised everyone to have a minimum of 3 days worth of food and water. And some of their publications advise having a minimum of two weeks of food and water. In my opinion, a one month supply is the absolute minimum.

Now that we understand why we would buy freeze dried food and where the raw ingredients come from, let’s take a look at how it is made.

How Freeze Dried Food is Made

Freeze-drying has several advantages over other food preservation methods. Freeze drying is actually a three step process. It takes the three steps to freeze-dry the food, and a fourth step to reconstitute it just before it is eaten.

Let’s look at the advantages of freeze drying over other food preparation methods. This will explain why freeze dried food is particularly well-suited for long term food storage programs.

Frozen foods retain fresh flavor and nutritional value, but require uniform, low temperature storage conditions, and that takes energy. Dehydrated and canned foods are shelf-stable, but high-temperature processing can degrade flavor, texture and nutritional content. Freeze-drying combines the best of these processing methods. It preserves freshness, color and aroma similar to frozen food, while providing the shelf-stable convenience of canned and dehydrated food.

The freeze drying process of different foods varies with temperature, time, pressure, and other intermediate steps. Foods are first tested for bacterial counts. Next, the food may be cut into smaller pieces, depending on its original size. For example, thick meats do not freeze dry very well, so they must be cut into smaller chunks before freeze drying.

Meat and seafood are then cooked before freeze drying. Fruits and vegetables are washed first. Some vegetables such as peas and corn have to be blanched.

The food is then placed on trays, the trays are placed in carts, and the carts are wheeled into cold rooms where the temperature can be as low as -40 degrees F. This causes the food to be frozen very quickly.

Next, the carts are moved from the cold room into the vacuum drying chamber. The drying stage involves a process known as sublimation. Sublimation is where a solid material is forced to change state into a gaseous state without ever becoming a liquid. The process is started by removing the air with a vacuum pump. The temperature is then raised to about 100 degrees F.

Since the pressure in the chamber is below the point where water can simultaneously exist as a solid, liquid, and gaseous state (called the triple point), the heat causes the ice crystals to change into water vapor. The vapor is then drawn off from the chamber, leaving only the food.

At this point, the dried food is filled with tiny voids, similar to a sponge. These voids are where the ice crystals were once present. This makes the food easier to absorb water when it is prepared for eating.

The dried food is then tested for moisture content and purity. Some foods may be ground into small pieces or even into a powder. Different ingredients are then blended together and the resulting food is packaged in airtight containers to prevent them from absorbing moisture from the air.

Freeze-dried foods have several advantages over other types of food for long term storage. They retain virtually all their fresh food taste and nutritional content. They maintain their original shape and texture, unlike dehydrated foods which shrink and shrivel due to high temperature processing. They weigh less than fresh food and take much less storage space. Finally, they stay fresh and can be stored at room temperature in their original packaging.
