Food Storage - Q&A
Where should I store my food storage?
This depends upon where you live. Meals made up of both freeze-dried and dehydrated components are affected by temperature, moisture and light. Optimal storage conditions for our meals are in cool, dry places.
How much water will I need?
On average, each individual serving requires 1 cup of water.
Do I have to use boiling water?
Hot water speeds up the process of reconstitution. Wise meals will be ready to eat more quickly when hot water is used. However, many of the meals can be re-hydrated and ready to eat with any temperature of water.
How are the meals packaged?
100% of our meals are packaged in mylar pouches that each hold 4 adult servings. These pouches are then arranged in durable polyethylene buckets for easy storage. Please see our Smart Packaging link.
How long do the meals last in storage?
Up to 25 years. For optimal storage life it is suggested that food be stored in a cool, dry place, such as a basement.
How much food should we have stored for our family?
The needs of each family are different.
