Default Long-term food storage



Advertise Here

I have been looking for the best long-term food suppliers. I have tried several and just wanted to get some ideas from some other people who might have a better idea when it comes to quality and cost.

The ones I have tried myself are:

-Mountain House
-Legacy Foods
-Thrive

Please let me know if you have any recommendations.

Thanks!

I can recommend Emergency Essentials, Alpineaire, and Honeyville grain.

Here is a list of several that have LTS foods. Haven't used them all, but all have something that interests me. I didn't check every link. They all worked as of the first of the year.

I've used and been really satisfied with:

www.freezedryguy.com
www.honeyvillegrain.com
www.motherearthproducts.com
www.safecastle.com

and when all else fails, amazon.com

I like the products, quality and service of www.emergencyessentials.com but their shipping boxes have "Emergency Essentials" all over the box in huge letters.
I avoid case lots of Mountain House products for the same reason.

Good luck.

Just an FYI: Emergency Essentials will ship in plain boxes if so requested.

The best I have found is Honeyville. The grains are very clean, very clean means you don't end up ruining your grinding wheel on a stray rock.

Default just my .02....

MRE'S-Epicenter.com....excellent selection of stuff 1-2 yrs old.....keep it cool.....good for 7-8 yrs

water storage and storage chems.....ready store.....

mountain house and gourmet reserves.....do your homework

alicepacks, canteens, and other excess military gear.....alleghenyoutlet.com.......
shipping is a little excessive but they have stuff you can't find anywhere else.

I have no stake in any of these sites......just what i have been buying from for a couple years.........

I recommend whole grain.

If stored under humidity control [using desiccant] it can be stored for centuries.

Porridge is simply any whole cereal grain soaked in water. Barley, oats, wheat, maize, spelt, sorghum, rye, buckwheat, quinoa, teff, amaranth, they can all make porridge.

We get 40-pounds of oats for $5, barley is $6, corn is $8.

Whole cereal grains pack far more nutrients than white rice does, and they tend to cost a fraction of what processed white rice costs.

The Roman Armies marched and fought while eating a diet primarily of barley porridge. Entire nations were defeated and an empire was built on whole grain.

It you can feed yourself for less than 5cents/meal using Mountain House, Legacy Foods, or Thrive; then ignore me.

Thank you. It never dawned on me I could even request that.

Thank you for the links.

I am a big fan of Mountain House and Wise Food.

I purchase Mountain House from Emergency Essentials (http://www.beprepared.com) and Wise Food from Emergency Outdoors (http://www.emergencyoutdoors.com)

I tried other freeze dried food and never really agreed with me or it was far too salty.
