Long Term Food Storage

Those that are planning to store food for long-term emergencies know that certain foods do not always stand the test of time. Natural elements such as sunlight, moisture and oxygen can dramatically reduce the lifespan of some of our favorite foods. Therefore, re-packaging food in better quality food liners and eliminating any oxygen present in the package can extend the shelf life of most foods dramatically. When re-packaging foods, using a multi-barrier approach will keep these natural elements out of the container when sealed.Having a guideline on hand of which foods last longer than others will ensure that your food supply stays within it’s expiration. According to the National Terror Alert website, the following foods can be stored for long-term use. Guidelines for Food Storage: Use within 6 months: Powdered milk (in box) Dried fruit (in metal container) Dry, crisp crackers (in metal container) Cereal Dried potatoes Flour Use Within 1 year: Canned condensed meat and vegetable soups Canned fruit, fruit juices and vegetables Ready-to-eat cereals and uncooked instant cereals (in metal containers) Vitamins Peanut butter Jelly Hard candy and canned nuts Vegetable oil May Be Stored Indefinitely (in proper containers and conditions): Wheat Dried Corn Sugar Honey Soybeans Instant coffee, tea and cocoa Salt Non carbonated soft drinks White rice Bouillon products Dry pasta Powdered milk (in nitrogen packed cans)
