Are All Freeze-Dried Meats Created Equal?

There seems to be a lot of confusion in the emergency food market regarding the quality of products that appear to be comparable.  One common question is: are all freeze-dried meats created equal?  The simple answer to this is no.  Several companies have introduced freeze-dried meats that are full of fillers and preservatives; many times these are sold as  “pre-seasoned” freeze-dried meats.  These meats contain things like hydrogenated oils (shelf-stable fat), meat flavoring (flavor enhancement for poor grade meat), and  preservatives.  Quality freeze-dried meats do not require preservatives to obtain a 25-year shelf-life, but they do require proper packaging (Food Insurance™ has data supporting a 25-year shelf-life when meats are stored in a can, but does not have data supporting a 25-year shelf-life when meats are stored in pouches).

When purchasing freeze-dried meat from Food Insurance™, you can rest assured that you are purchasing high quality meat that doesn’t need any type of “enhancement” to taste great.

  1. Obviously Food Insurance looks like the better choice. That’s shocking how many differences there are though! I know that some companies have vegetarian foods with fake meat in them. I wonder how those would compare with your competitors? I bet they have fewer ingredients 🙂

  2. is there a waste once the large cans are open. especially when only two people are using the product



    That is a great question. The shelf-life of our products once opened ranges from 1-6 weeks. Things like moisture and heat will reduce the shelf-life, where cool temperatures (refrigeration) will extend the shelf-life.

    By planning out your meals in advance, you can avoid any waste, even if you only have 2 people.
