What You Should Look For In A Survival Food Kit

All food is not created equal and when it comes to the survival food category, the same can be said. Just because these resources may be used in desperate times or measures, does not mean that you need to be desperate in what you choose to stock up on. Being informed about what you should be seeking in a survival food kit it essential to know which one is the best fit for you, which is of the greatest quality, and which meals are worthwhile to have in your corner.

Here are some of the important aspects you should be considering when searching for survival food kits for your home, business, or organization:

  1. Meals that are fully cooked.
    Having peace of mind that even in the most trying natural disaster or emergency situation, your food is cooked and safe to eat is priceless. Small details like this make all the difference when time or resources are not on your side. No need to find clean water, a way to heat or boil, and so much more, but simply having a fully cooked meal in your hands no matter what life throws your way.
  2. Meals that are sterile and aseptically processed.
    If we have learned anything through this pandemic, one major component is how important sanitary, sterile, and shelf stable foods have become. When you look for survival foods, having the assurance that your meals are sterile and aseptic which means they are hermetically sealed to produce a shelf-stable product that can be stored at ambient conditions.
  3. Meals that do not need to be refrigerated.
    Stocking up on meats and dairy and produce in the freezer can be a great way to save for a survival situation, however it is even more vital to be sure that you also have foods that can be kept in mild climate situations for those times when power goes out and refrigeration is not available.
  4. Meals with durable and waterproof packaging.
    With so many uncertainties, prepping for all types of circumstances means thinking about how your food can outlast even the wildest storms or disasters. Meals packaged within strict durability requirements can ensure your food stays good through many hard times.
  5. Meals with an extended shelf life.
    Shelf life is king when it comes to preparation and survival food storage. For the most part, you want to know that you can count on it for years to come & won’t have to continually replace your stock.
