    I consider Rolled oats to be one of the best SHTF foods. Porridge for breakfast with brown sugar and a little butter is the fuel of the gods. The best way I can think of to store it would be in Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers. Does anyone have any first hand experience of how long this will...

Now looking at them they look nothing like oat meal and after further research I don't know If I will be able to eat it. LOL. I did a...

    I just finally finished storing Wheat and Oats in mylar bags/5gal.buckets. I bought 50lb bags of both from a local feed store. Both were whole grain and I even called the mfg. to make sure no chemicals were used and that they were good for human consumption. The mfg.s assured me they were...
