These ideal survival foods will of course need to be stored the right way in order to retain their practically never-ending shelf life.
You’ll need to be really careful about keeping these completely dry and free from moisture, but if you can manage to store these in air-tight containers, they will keep for an incredibly long period of time. Although some of these food items will change texture, thickening or hardening over time, they will only change in terms of taste.
Seasonings are also excellent survival foods, as they’re food that lasts forever, and only get weaker in strength of taste over long periods of time.
While these foods will likely change in taste after some time, they remain safe to eat indefinitely. This is the first I’ve heard of Flour, Corn starch, and Baking soda being nonperishable.
Definitely a controversial subject, but I thought I’d put the article out there anyway, at least as a gateway to a discussion.
As much as we (myself included) love to talk about gear, self-defence, knives, ammo stockpiles, etc., basic sustenance is by far the most important factor in long-term survival (as is that water storage problem), and I think it should be discussed more, even though of course it is more controversial. I’ve found by sad experience as we rotate through our food storage that it is MUCH better to use dried beans and split peas as soon as reasonable, as the time required to cook them to edible consistencies increases with age.

This article lists non-perishable food items that not only have long shelf lives, but if taken care of properly, these foods stand a chance of never going bad within your lifetime. The absolute best place to keep a food stockpile is in a dark, cool, and dry spot, free of humidity, moisture, direct sunlight, and extreme temperatures.
These survival foods never spoil, and will still remain edible long after their flavour has changed.
According to some sources, if you simply keep them unused, in an air-tight container and completely free of humidity and moisture, and you’re likely to never have to buy them again. Like with the base ingredients, keep these in an air-tight container, free of moisture and humidity, and they’re likely to never expire. The best way to keep these non-perishable foods is in an airtight container, free of moisture, and in a dark, cool spot, away from sunlight.

But I had to include a few sweets on my list, especially since I was always a sucker for gobstoppers as a kid – at least they’re great energy boosts!
Rice and salt are up on that list because so long as you keep them in proper storage (no moisture, no air, so vacuum sealed counts!), they should last a very long time.

But I’m not quite sure how long flour or beans would last at their very longest, personally! If it smells off, has become too soft, or has developed mold, it’s better not to eat the item.
This type of storage will keep your non-perishable food condiments tasting better for longer.
It will last a good 10+ years at times, so it has a reasonably long shelf life, but definitely not as long as I thought it would last, so it’s off the list! That being said, I don’t know enough about the safety of irradiated foods to have an informed opinion on them.
