#10 Cans & Food Kits - Great for Emergency Preparedness
Simple Food Preparation
Our freeze-dried foods are easy to prepare-just add hot water...wait 10 minutes...and eat! If a heat source is not available, room temperature or cold water can be used, too. Because no cooking is needed, these foods require much less water and fuel than most fresh, frozen or dehydrated foods (further conserving these two precious commodities).
#10 Cans 25 Year Shelf-Life
Mountain House® freeze-dried foods are packed in airtight #10 cans. Each of our cans has a protective enamel coating inside and out (including the lid), for double protection. At least 98% of the residual oxygen has been removed, meeting U.S. Military specifications. As a result, our #10 cans have the longest shelf life available: 25 years! We've been around for 49 years and have actually tested our archived products, so we know first hand that our food will be protected until you are ready to use it. After opening, we recommend using the contents within 1 to 2 weeks for best results and taste, using the convenient re-sealable plastic lid between uses. Treat any leftover food as you would fresh food.
Just In Case...72-Hour Kit
To help you prepare for an emergency, we have introduced Mountain House® "Just In Case®...", a complete 72-hour food unit of Mountain House freeze dried foods consisting of three (3) full meals a day for 1 adult person. "Just In Case®..." starts you and your family off on the road to disaster preparedness, and gives you the satisfaction of knowing you won't go hungry in an emergency. If you want to store the best, look no further than Mountain House®.
Taste the Difference!
Mountain House® freeze dried foods taste superior to competitive products because we actually start with fresh or frozen foods, then cook and prepare them, and finally freeze-dry them ourselves. All the goodness, flavor, and taste are locked in as if you had hand-made them from scratch. In comparison, other (food companies) do not freeze-dry or cook their own foods. They blend the dry components of other companies and package them. Mountain House foods taste as close to fresh, frozen, or better, as you can get. Backpackers, for example, consistently rate us #1 year after year as the best tasting foods and easiest to prepare.
