Best survival foods for storage, booking flights - How to Do

Categories: Sharp Utility Knife | Author: admin 08.09.2013

If for any reason, and there are many, trucks were to stop bringing food into your area, expect store shelves to be bare in about three days. One way is to simply buy the foods that you normally do, but buy more and eat from the oldest to rotate your stock before expiration dates come up.
Since I mention using the freeze-dried foods as rice toppings, and since Costco sells Instant White Rice by the bucket for $50, I'll analyze this product to see if this is the rice you want to buy. This is another offering of a bucket of freeze-dried food and is sold by a number of outfitters such as Cabela's. This one-year supply of food is mostly canned dry goods with some freeze-dried foods (Provident Pantry).
So buy a good grain mill, stock up on salt, baking soda, powdered egg and milk and whatnot, add some dehydrated and freeze-dried cans, and you have basic survival fare on a budget.
If you're really on a budget, for just $280 you can get a year's supply of just grains as a basis for your stored food supply. You can buy these by the case: 36 1200 calorie bars (total of 43200 calories), 24 2400 calorie bars (57600 calories), or 20 3600 calorie bars (total 72000 calories) for around $80 to $125 (check on eBay but ask how old they are).
This is the above (SA13F) plus 9 six-gallon buckets of grains and beans for $1,653.60 delivered.
I like the added information and tips included in this site as well as all the neat food prep stuff. This survival site sells AlpineAire Gourmet Reserves Freeze Dried Foods, an alternative to the Mountain House brand. If you're shopping for the freeze-dried foods, this brand is a contender, though other vendor's sell for less. The idea here is to use cheap rice for the bulk of calories and use the expensive gourmet canned stuff as a topping. You get 127 #10 cans of freeze-dried and dehydrated foods, 718,985 calories, (approximately 1,969 calories per person per day) for $1,606 delivered. You get 102 #10 cans of freeze-dried and dehydrated foods, 453,560 calories, (1,243 calories per person per day) for $2,016 delivered. This looks like the Walton Feeds Standard Unit but without the small cans for $925 you-pick-up or $1,150 delivered to any of the 48 states.
This is a mix of dehydrated and freeze-dried food in 168 #10 cans for $2,999.90 delivered, $2700 if you pick it up.

This is 100 #10 cans of dehydrated foods (not gourmet freeze-dried foods), 480 pounds shipping wt., for $1,399. On the plus side, they have been selling dried foods for going on 30 years, so it's not a complete scam. There are a lot of food options at the grocery store… almost to the point of feeling overwhelmed just choosing a box of cereal or a can of soup.
You can use this survival food list as a starting point to growing your own list of must have items.
You can get the freeze-dried stuff in pouches, but it's really for backpacking as it only has a 7-year shelf-life. This offering is designed to provide more than the minimum recommended storage amounts of both grains and legumes for one person for a year— 318 pounds of grains and 82 pounds of legumes, about 1600 calories per day in 10 buckets. Nothing really bad here, it's just that for quantities of this much I'd expect discount pricing.
This is comparable to similar offerings and if you happen to live in Idaho, this could be your best deal.
They do Vacuum-Nitrogen canning using quality stuff and have been around long enough to actually test the storage life of their products. The 1-Year Harvest Deluxe Pack goes for $1,749, but can be had elsewhere (Survival Acres) for $1,445, so not an impressive discount. There is also a lot of consensus on the standard foods for survival, which I will list below.
When making any foods it’s always a good idea to keep your family’s food preferences and dietary needs in mind when investing in your food supply. It was after analyzing the claims of this vendor that I decided someone needed to provide a buyer's guide to food preparedness products, and that it might as well be me. A bit less than the best, they also offer a 162-can freeze dried Mountain House brand package for $4,810 delivered—not a good a deal as you'll see if you read on. This is comparable to the Mountain House brand, so it might come down to individual food taste preferences.
They are in Dallas and invite customer's to pick up and save shipping, so if you live in Texas, give this retailer of various brands and types of storable foods consideration. Can't really tell, but for basic foods in cans this offering is a bit on the high price side.

They want $1,500 which is close to the best price you'll find, so this site looks like a contender.
The 120 can 1-Year Deluxe Harvest Pack sells for $1,795, about $300 more than the competition, so not a discount seller.
They had the lowest price of anyone for the Wise Foods 36 bucket 1-year food supply package and Mayday Food Bars by the case. Consider giving a fine print as a gift that could hang on someone's wall for a hundred years or more.
Canning, Root Cellars have been used to hold food items over the winter and provide families with food for centuries (the root cellars anyway). You get an incredible 4,383 servings for just $920, which explains why they can barely keep up with the demand. Coast Guard Approved with a 5 year shelf life (like MREs, 1-8 years, depending on storage temperature, might be a better claim, but if 5 years is the worst case [stored at 149oF], they may last much longer than MREs).
That comes to about 53 days food supply (including oil) which means the figure of 74,830 calories is in error.
How many families that ventured west on the wagon trains would have survived without storing food. On the plus side, I'd give them an award for worst design in a Web site—it's really that awful.
We have gotten lazy and forgotten how with the inventions of electricity and refrigeration. The issue I see with these types of recipes is that it will be relatively hard for someone to prepare if a worst case scenario happens.
Most people will want or only be able to eat already prepared foods, canned food, or something as simple as rice. Otherwise these are portable, go-anywhere-with-you bars—don't leave your survival retreat without them, so consider having some on hand.
