Why emergency food?
Almost daily, we read in the media about accidents and disasters. Once the emergency has occurred, it will be too late to take any extensive precautions to control the damage. But appropriate planning will enable you to be prepared to face emergency situations. Our specially assembled Emergency Food packs have been designed to support you in this effort.
The greatest enemy of dehydrated or freeze-dried foods is moisture and oxygen. For long-term storage, foods must be packaged in solid containers with minimum moisture and oxygen contents. The purpose of packaging under a nitrogen atmosphere is to prevent oxidation of certain components contained in the food.
Food dehydration is the oldest method of increasing the shelf life of foods. For millennia, humanity has known that freshly harvested foods will not be spoiled if they are sun-cured. Such dehydrated foods used to be vital for survival during the wintertime, when food supplies were scarce. Today, state-of-the-art technologies offer new and more advanced approaches to preserving foods.
