Exclamation Third Party Study Finds 110 Times! the Oxygen Levels in Wise Foods over MH Foods!

Bad news for the "make-a-quick-buck" crowd who jumped in last year with shaky claims about their new "prepper foods."

Read the news release ...
http://safecastle.blogspot.com/2012/07/third-party-lab-study-finds-oxygen.html

The claims about those foods' shelf life were obviously untrue ... they approached me to sell their foods last year more than once and when they refused to answer my questions about substantiating their food labeling and shelf-life claims, I declined to be involved.

We bought 2 of their buckets, what does this mean? Has it been determined how long they're good?

I read the article as well, Now I have always liked Mountain House and buy alot of their products. But since MH payed for the study it's not really 3rd party, I would like to see an INDEPENDANT lab test all of the products from every producer across the board.

Arrow more data

We have more info on the testing:

The Business Wire link - http://www.businesswire.com/news/hom...umers-Presence

And a graph that details more of the testing results: http://www.businesswire.com/portal/s...65&newsLang=en

A Mountain House rep replied in one of my threads on another forum:

I just wanted to drop by and answer some of your questions regarding our recent oxygen testing...

The reason we focused on Wise Company was because we were concerned that their shelf-life claims might be exaggerated, given the packaging structure they use and their lack of oxygen absorbers. Emergency food storage is critical to families when there is a crisis, and we think it's extremely important for customers to be able to make informed purchasing decisions.

In terms of apples to apples, both Wise Co. and Mountain House sell long-term emergency food storage products, which was the criterion we were addressing (although Wise does claim to use freeze dried ingredients in their products.)

In terms of the study, we asked Columbia Food Labs to test 30 pouches each of Wise (shipped in sealed, original packaging) and Mountain House foods, with comparable flavors where possible. A chart with the results was added to the press release on BusinessWire.com (see links above)

You can see that while there was some variation in the oxygen content of both brands, there was also remarkable consistency: only 3 of the 30 Wise pouches had an oxygen level under 15%, while only 2 of the 30 Mountain House pouches had an oxygen level over 0.5%.

Thank you for your questions on this very important subject. If you have further questions email: [email protected]
