Just Add Water, Wait 5-10 Minutes & Eat! Freeze-drying has several advantages over other food preservation methods. Frozen foods retain fresh flavor and nutritional value, but require uniform, low temperature storage conditions. Dehydrated and canned foods are shelf-stable, but high-temperature processing can degrade flavor, texture and nutritional content. Freeze-drying combines the best of these processing methods. It preserves freshness, color and aroma similar to frozen food, while providing the shelf-stable convenience of canned or dehydrated food. Mountain House freeze-dried foods are packed in #10 cans with 98% of the oxygen removed. Their canning process uses vacuum oxygen removal and nitrogen flushing, or oxygen absorbers to protect product freshness. Their products packed in #10 cans offer a 25 year shelf life. They have manufactured cans for over 40 years for consumers and military use. They have tasted product that is 35 years old and it still tastes great. Each can and lid is coated with a protective enamel inside and out for double protection. The cans contents are protected until you open them. After opening, we recommend using the contents within 2 to 3 weeks for best results and taste; using the convenient resealable plastic lid between uses. Treat any leftover food as you would fresh food.
